According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Buffalo Bills unrestricted free agent defensive end Alex Carrington has visits set up with Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Rams next week..
Carrington visited with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday and according to Rapoport, the meeting went well even though the Arkansas State product left unsigned. The two sides were reportedly to stay in touch with one another moving forward.
This news isn’t surprising as Carrington more than likely wants to shop around a little before making a final decision on where to play in 2014.
The Steelers are looking to add a free agent defensive end after losing Ziggy Hood and Al Woods during the first week of free agency. Carrington, if eventually signed, would likely start opposite Cameron Heyward in 2014 on the Steelers defensive line.
