Rams Interest In Bills Free Agent DE Alex Carrington Might Increase Soon

The Pittsburgh Steelers are more than likely keeping close tabs on Buffalo Bills free agent defensive lineman Alex Carrington, but they aren’t the only ones.

While Carrington has yet to visit with the St. Louis Rams, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Wednesday that could change in the near future now that former Chicago Bears free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton has signed with the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams, according to Thomas, had a visit with Melton lined up.

Thomas goes on to say that if signed, Carrington would likely be a backup to starting defensive tackles Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford.

Since his visit last Friday with the Steelers, Carrington has visited with the Oakland Raiders and there are unconfirmed rumors that he might be visiting with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.

The Steelers are needing a 3-4 defensive end after losing Ziggy Hood and Al Woods early on in free agency.

    Hopefully the opportunity to start will help him decide where he goes.

  • Matt Manzo

    Why isn’t he signed? There doesn’t seem to be any other DEs the Steelers are interested in?
    And Bouchette is saying we’re interested in bringing back Harrison!

    I really hope he wants to go somewhere he can start. They need to get him signed if they feel they want to upgrade the DE position from last year.

  • Steeler Wheeler

    Hmmm, if the Rams, Raiders and Browns are interested in a former Bill, perhaps the Steelers should pass?????

    He’s not signed because he’s testing the market, trying to get the most lucrative deal

  • Paddy

    I think this ship has sailed

    So, Carrington is talking to two other teams that can use him as a backup, yet we have a starting spot wide open for him to grab? Sounds like this guy just wants to get paid.
