Alex Carrington, St. Louis Rams agree to deal

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Every major player from the Rams' organization is tucked away here at the NFL Annual Meeting, but that didn't stop St. Louis from making a move Tuesday.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that free-agent defensive lineman Alex Carrington has agreed to a deal with the organization, according to a person informed of the process.

The former Buffalo Bills defender is a scheme-versatile fit who drew attention from the Browns, Raiders and Steelers on the open market. Cleveland's Mike Pettine said this morning the Browns were still very interested.

Carrington started just three games last season before landing on injured reserve in September with a torn left quadriceps tendon. When healthy, he's an intriguing situational defender who can line up all over the formation and generate pressure inside.

When we talked with Les Snead on Tuesday, the Rams general manager expressed great optimism about his young defense. It starts up front with a productive gang of linemen led by Robert Quinn, Chris Long and Michael Brockers. With Carrington along for the ride, St. Louis looms as a massive headache for opposing passers in 2014.
