Chandler was the Bills' leading receiver in 2013, and has been the team's starting tight end in each of the last three seasons. In that time frame, he has hauled in 134 passes for 1,615 yards and 14 touchdowns. He can safely be penciled in as the starter heading into 2014; the team's tight end depth is largely unproven, and Chandler may only be usurped by a highly-drafted rookie if that comes to fruition.
This is the third two-year deal that Chandler, 28, has signed with the Bills, who joined the team late in 2010, and then signed a two-year extension in the 2012 offseason. He had previously been linked to the Detroit Lions as a free agent, but his decision has been made, and he'll continue his career in Buffalo.
