As this season continues it will be good to hopefully see this team healthy. The coaching staff and been plugging guys in here and there and it’s good to see them play well however I want to know who the future is. Now most of us could put together a list of which they think or would like to see here but what about those guys on the cut line I guess you could say. One player that may be in those talks is Scott Chandler.
Chandler in his fourth season with the Bills has been a pleasant surprise for this team. He’s a big body that has decent speed but I believe this team wants a definite threat at this position come next year. His production in my opinion hasn’t been up to where I would like to see it. Now you may ask is that his fault or the coaching staff? His 6’ 7” frame should give opposing defense’s nightmares when he’s on the field however I can’t remember any team really game planning to stop Scott.
This year I think would be one season Chandler would like to forget. Although he has time to help it he hasn’t performed even up to his standards I guess you could say. He only has had 5 + receptions twice in the Bills first 11 games. Along with that he has had a good amount of drops this year. Being targeted 60 times thus far and only having 37 receptions is a concern. I think some of those are for sure on the quarterback but looking back at how many drops he has had with nobody around him. Hopefully that can be corrected as the Bills finish out their season.
Looking at the offseason I think the Bills will absolutely go after a tight end that will be a major threat for years to come. Whether that’s in the draft or someone they can sign I think it will be high on this coaching staffs list. Also in doing this it will also help the future franchise quarterback progress. More dynamic players around EJ Manuel will only benefit him.
