The Buffalo Bills have Lorenzo Alexander back for one more year and it comes on a deal that is quite team-friendly in terms of money.

We still have two months until the craziness of NFL free agency begins. Right now, Buffalo Bills fans can only wait for news about signings of the in-house free agents.

One of those came earlier this week when Lorenzo Alexander announced he will be back for one more year with the Bills.

The details of his new deal emerged Thursday.

This is some great value for the team considering Alexander is a captain and should be the leader of the defense in 2019. Yet at the same time, perhaps his playing time could go down due to the youth at the linebacker position. Either way he is still making a small fortune to play in 2019.

Alexander was the biggest name among the free agents on the roster, yet some starters still remain in need of new deals.

We look at this news and more in a Friday edition of The Morning Charge. The weekend is here! Just in time for a monster snowstorm.

No one else wanted Matt Barkley?

That worked out well for the Bills. It’s always funny how these things go, especially considering how some teams struggled to find any help at quarterback last year.
