Alexander completed a career-best season in 2016 with 12.5 sacks and the Pro Bowl Defensive MVP. He was also named 1st Team All-Pro by the Associated Press; AFC East Defensive Player of the Year and AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.
Rex Ryan said that Alexander was “without question” the MVP for the Bills in 2016 and Bill Belichick said that he was “one of the best players we’ve seen all year.”
Alexander began his career in 2005 as a defensive tackle with the Carolina Panthers and by 2010, he had transformed himself into a starting linebacker for the Washington Redskins. He was a pro bowl alternate in 2010, a pro bowl performer in 2012, and again in 2016.
Now the One Man Gang returns to the Bills to start at the Sam Linebacker position in Coach McDermott’s 4-3 alignment and to wreak havoc on Special Teams for the #BillsMafia of 2017!
