(WGR 550) -- For the second time in three years, life on the free agent market made tight end Scott Chandler realize what he had in Buffalo. Making the announcement on Thursday evening, the Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms on a contract with Chandler to keep him as a member of the franchise.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's a two-year deal to keep him in the fold. The Bills initially acquired Chandler by claiming him on waivers from Dallas during the 2010 season. He started for the Bills in 2011, signed a two-year contract following the season and has been a mainstay in the Bills' offense ever since.
Serving as the team's starting tight end for each of the past three seasons, Chandler posted a career high in both receptions (53) and yardage (655) during the 2013 campaign. Over the course of his Bills career, he has accrued a total of 135 receptions for 1,623 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Chandler rejoins a tight end group that has Tony Moeaki, Chris Gragg, Lee Smith and Mike Caussin on the roster. He was originally drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2007, but was later released and found a home in Dallas. Chandler will turn 29 in late July.
