The Seattle Seahawks have a few lingering free agents who’ve yet to be signed, and among them is safety Maurice Alexander.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Alexander is being brought in by the Buffalo Bills on both Thursday and Friday. They’re in the hunt for safety depth, as they already have a starting pair of Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde, but their other notables include competing Rafael Bush, Dean Marlowe, and Siran Neal. I’ve only heard of one of these three guys.

Alexander is more familiar for his time with the Rams — both in St. Louis and Los Angeles — starting 20+ games before the team released him in the middle of the 2017 season. The Seahawks brought him in for a visit later that year but didn’t sign him. A few months later at the start of the 2018 offseason, Alexander was brought on board.

In research, I was fully certain that Maurice had played a handful of defensive snaps for the Seahawks. It turns out his 133 snaps were all on special teams. Injuries led to him appearing in only nine games, and there’s never been any indication or much discussion about re-signing him, so I suspect that if it isn’t Buffalo, Alexander’s brief Seahawks career is over.
