Another day and yet another player being resigned by the Bills. The Bills confirmed today that they have signed Scott Chandler to a two year deal. Does this eliminate the chance of this team going after a top tier tight end in the draft to grow into the future with? Eric Ebron comes to mind as he’s been labeled as a possible top 15 even 10 pick in some mock drafts.
Playing his college ball at North Carolina he has shown everyone what he is capable of and many teams will be interested. His height paired along with his skill set will surly entice an organization to make a commitment on Ebron as he could very well be a major piece to someone’s offense.
When learning about this signing I wondered to myself why? We have neglected the tight end position for years and now we finally have a chance to upgrade and it looks like the Bills will pass. What is it that they see in Chandler? I get it that he had some decent production last season but would anyone outside of Buffalo even classify him as a top 10 or even 15 tight end in the league? My guess is no but for some reason the Bills think highly of him. I hope he does play well and proves me wrong but if he fades during the season I think many will look back to this day and ask what was this team thinking?
So as we wait and watch this team going forward I believe they need to simply acquire talent. I believe we have the guys that give it their all and are great team guys but when it’s all said and done talent is what wins games. What does everyone else think?
