As the Bills prepare to make a big offer to free agent tight end Charles Clay, the team has parted ways with its incumbent starter at the position. The Bills announced today in a press release that they’ve released tight end Scott Chandler.
Chandler, 30 in July, hauled in 47 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in 2014. Chandler was something of a late bloomer in the league, as he did not see any time on an NFL field between his debut in 2007 with the Chargers and his return in 2010 with the Bills. in Buffalo, he asserted himself as a real NFL talent and not just a taxi squad filler.
Mike Rodak of ESPN.com (on Twitter) wouldn’t be surprised to see the Patriots get in on Chandler. Chandler has a history of doing well against New England and the Pats could use a tight end.
