Buffalo Bills Release TE Scott Chandler

The Bills are trying to free up some additional money for Charles Clay and other free agent targets. To do so, Buffalo released tight end Scott Chandler on Wednesday.

The Buffalo Bills have released tight end Scott Chandler. According to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News, the move frees up $2.25 million in cap space for 2015. Buffalo is in the process of preparing a contract for H-Back Charles Clay and the team must feel as though they can sign him away from the Miami Dolphins. Miami placed the transition tag on Clay back on March 3.

Chandler has been Buffalo’s most productive tight end since seeing joining the team in 2010. The tight end started playing significant snaps in 2011 and since joining the Bills, he’s caught 182 passes for 2,120 yards and 17 touchdowns. Chandler was entering the final year of his current contract.

A combination of Chandler’s size (6’7”) and steady production will make him appealing to teams looking for a tight end on the free agent market.
