Bills free agency: Alex Carrington has visits with Raiders, Rams

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Buffalo's former starting defensive lineman looks like a longshot to return to the team that made him a third-round draft pick in 2010.

Buffalo Bills free agent defensive lineman Alex Carrington has set up visits this week with the Oakland Raiders and the St. Louis Rams, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Last week, Carrington made a visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but clearly left there without a contract agreement. He has also been linked to the Cleveland Browns and Mike Pettine, but it does not appear that he has yet made a visit there.

Carrington, 26, emerged as a starter for the Bills last season before a torn quad ended his season prematurely in Week 3. Since then, the Bills have had two defensive tackles go to the Pro Bowl (Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus), and a third, Alan Branch, was re-signed to a three-year deal in December. With the Bills moving to a 4-3 defense and with plenty of depth inside, it appears that Carrington's days in Buffalo are numbered.

That said, GM Doug Whaley did confirm last week that the Bills had an offer on the table to Carrington, so a re-signing is not completely out of the question.
