Even with the Buffalo Bills making the playoffs this year, the decision Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander made at the start of the season has not changed.

Alexander announced that this would be his final year in the NFL and confirmed the decision after the Bills final home game.

Alexander told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

“My mind hasn’t even processed transition yet, so I’m still in this thing 100 percent. Once you start thinking about life after football, you kind of take some of the focus away from the guys and what’s important. The focus is on Houston now and we have to get a playoff win, obviously that would be huge for this organization and community.”

Alexander got a huge ovation on Sunday when he left the game.

This year for a third consecutive year, he was nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
