As an effort to clear up cap space, the Buffalo Bills released their starting tight end on March 11. Chandler's 2014 season did not consist of Gronk-like numbers. However, for those that are fans of Patriot Nation know that Chandler always saved his best performance for New England. We all know that Belichick has a history of signing players that seem to excel against his team.

The move to New England makes sense for a few different reasons:

  • 6'7 and 260 frame can alleviate Gronk's blocking responsibilities
  • Perfect complement to Gronk in a two-TE set
  • Another goal-line, short yardage option for Brady
  • Opportunity to stick it back to your former team
On the flip side of things, Baltimore has the potential of being a more appealing option.  With Owen Daniels relocating to Denver, the Ravens have a starting slot with Chandler's name written all over it.

So what's it going to be Chandler?  We all know you want to play with the current Super Bowl champs!
