With the recent BuffaloBills.com report that tight end Scott Chandler was recovering quicker than expected from offseason ACL surgery, the team’s tight end situation got a little more confusing.
Already an average position in terms of talent before Chandler went down in week 15, the Bills entered the offseason with many questions to answer.
