Alexander accrued nine tackles (six solo) against the Saints on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran linebacker now has 56 tackles (43 solo) through nine games, putting him on pace for 100 tackles this season. However, Alexander has recorded just two sacks this season, which is nothing compared to the monstrous 12.5 sacks he racked up in 2016.

Alexander only saw action on 36 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders, logging three tackles and a forced fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Don't be too alarmed if you own Alexander in an IDP league, as the Bills were comfortably ahead in the second half and felt it was a good chance to give the 34-year-old some rest. Alexander remains productive with 42 tackles, three forced fumbles and two sacks, though with fellow starter Ramon Humber coming back soon from a thumb injury, rookie Matt Milano -- who's been turning heads for weeks -- could start to sub in for both starters more in an effort to keep them healthy. It's also apparent Alexander isn't going to be the sack monster he was in Rex Ryan's defense, as he put up 12.5 of them seemingly out of nowhere last season.

Alexander posted seven tackles and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old continues to play like a man 10 years his junior, with 30 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles through five games. He's receiving a near full allotment of plays as well, with 125 snaps over the last two weeks, something that should continue with fellow outside starter Ramon Humber out for a few weeks. Alexander won't reach the 12.5 sacks that came out of nowhere last season, but he'll remain productive as a secondary IDP.

Alexander had two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Alexander recorded his second sack of the season and continued his hot start as the Bills defense frustrated Trevor Siemian on Sunday afternoon. The 34-year-old and the Buffalo defense will try to contain Matt Ryan and the Falcons in Week 4.

Alexander will get a scheduled rest day Wednesday, Chris Brown of th Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Alexander is 34 and just went through a busy game (55 total snaps between defense and special teams) in hot weather, this seems easily merited. Alexander is continuing his career revival, with 15 tackles and a sack through two contests.

Alexander recored 10 tackles (six solo) and one sack in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Alexander looked like the 2016-version of himself on Sunday, as he reached double-digit tackles for just the second time in his career. His 43 defensive snaps almost doubled last week's total as well.

Alexander signed a two-year, $9 million contract extension with the Bills on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. He will earn $4.1 million in guaranteed salary.

EDGE Analysis

Alexander expressed an interest in sticking around Buffalo, and now the 33-year-old has officially put pen to paper. The veteran outside linebacker racked up some massive totals out of nowhere last season, compiling 76 tackles (56 solo) and 12.5 sacks on the season in addition to two interceptions and three forced fumbles. It's unlikely he will repeat that production in 2017, but could enjoy more success than he had in the other six seasons of his career.

Alexander, who will be an unrestricted free agent in March, says he'd like to re-sign with the Bills but also wants to see what the new coaching staff looks like, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I would definitely love to be a Buffalo Bill next year," said the veteran. "Obviously we haven't talked about anything just yet. Everything is really fresh, but I will definitely weigh my options and see what happens. Coaching change, who's back, there's a lot that goes into it. So once my wife and I have all the facts and everything is laid out we'll make the decision that's best for our family."

EDGE Analysis

Alexander is coming off a "where the heck did this come from?" season where he posted 76 tackles and 12.5 sacks, crazy considering the 33-year-old never had more than 2.5 in any of his previous nine NFL seasons. However, we believe this was a confluence of good fortune, as Alexander thrived in Rex Ryan's defense and the role he was perfectly suited for. With some younger Bills about to get more playing time and with Ryan ousted, Alexander's role will be different whether in Buffalo or any other NFL city. Don't overbid for him in IDP leagues next season.

Alexander logged four tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Jets, giving him 12.5 quarterback takedowns on the season, tied for third in the league.

EDGE Analysis

No one saw this coming out of the 33-year-old veteran. Alexander's now an unrestricted free agent, so we'll see if the Bills try to bring him back. Due to his age, he may not be highly sought after by the rest of the league even with that eye-popping sack total, but he probably wouldn't reach that with the Bills again either, as an entire new regime and defense will be taking over soon.
