The Bills made of one their easiest personnel decisions of the offseason Wednesday, re-signing veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander to a one-year contract extension.

Brandon Beane’s perfect world involves re-signing his own free agents. We live in an imperfect world, though, so it remains to be seen whether the Buffalo Bills’ third-year general manager stands by that between now and March.

LeSean McCoy has eluded media members much better in the last week than he has defenders. The Buffalo Bills’ running back was a no-show on the field and in the losing locker room after his team’s 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday at New Era Field. McCoy gained just 10 yards on 10 carries in the loss. Over the last three weeks, McCoy has run 24 times … for 24 y…
