Maurice Alexander’s visit with the Buffalo Bills has turned into a contract with the team, as the former Seattle Seahawks special teams contributor and reserve safety agreed to a one-year, $1.375 million contract.
Alexander played all of his 133 snaps exclusively on special teams in his one season with Seattle. He appeared in just nine games, missing several due to injuries. Really the only important thing out of his departure is how it affects the Seahawks’ compensatory picks entering 2020.
This compensatory free agent loss pads the Seahawks more to allow them to sign a CFA of their own without reducing the maximum number of compensatory picks they are eligible for at 4. https://t.co/34JvOKo2AZ— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) March 22, 2019
On a more important note, the Bills might not be finished bringing in Seahawks free agents.
Neiko Thorpe, a backup defensive back who’s better known for being one of the stars of the special teams unit, was brought into Buffalo for a Friday visit. He’s excelled as a gunner on punt coverage through his three seasons in Seattle, and losing him would certainly hurt a Seahawks ST group that has been pretty woeful in recent seasons.
