Alexander, 35, originally signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2005. He spent just over one season in Carolina before playing for a number of teams including the Ravens, Redskins, Cardinals and Raiders.
The Bills elected to sign Alexander to a one-year, $885,000 contract back in 2016 before later agreeing to a two-year, $9 million deal the following year.
Alexander was in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Alexander appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and recorded 74 tackles, 6.5 sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, a recovery and nine pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 linebacker out of 93 qualifying players.
