Lorenzo Alexander named AFC East Defensive Player of the Year by ESPN

Lorenzo Alexander's surprise season has resulted in the AFC East group of reporters for ESPN naming him the division's defensive most valuable player.

The vote was close -- Alexander received two, while Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler and Dolphins pass rusher Cam Wake got one each.

Alexander led the Bills and the division with 12.5 sacks -- easily topping his career total prior to 2016 -- and also had 76 tackles, three forced fumbles and an interception. The 33-year-old will represent the Bills in the Pro Bowl next season.

Alexander is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March.
