Alex Carrington to sign with the Rams

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

Accroding to Ian Rapoport, defensive end Alex Carrington has signed a deal with the St. Louis Rams. Carrington was previously linked with the Steelers, meeting with the team 10 days ago.

Former Buffalo Bills defensive end Alex Carrington has agreed to a deal with the the St. Louis Rams, according to Ian Rapoport.

The length or value of the deal is as of yet unknown.

The 26 year old Carrington was selected by the Bills in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft, and since then he has played in 44 games at defensive end, showing enough promise to make several teams, including the Steelers, interested in acquiring his services in free agency.

An injury in week 3 saw him placed on injured reserve for the rest of the 2013 season, likely pushing down his asking price and making him a potential low risk high reward signing.

The Steelers had a meeting with Carrington 10 days ago, which reportedly went well, with Carrington passing his physical. However he left without signing a contract, and not much has been said since connecting him with the Steelers.

The Steelers have already signed nose tackle/defensive end Cam Thomas from the Chargers, however they will need to add several defensive lineman to the roster, either via free agency or the draft. At least now we know Alex Carrington will not be one of them.
