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.
