The American Buffalo was at risk of becoming endangered. Fullbacks on the Buffalo Bills can relate, as the team hasn’t utilized the position consistently in years.
Former Bills fullback Corey McIntyre had just nine carries over the course of the last five years in which he was the Bills’ fullback.
The tight end position, however, has potential under new Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. The Chan Gailey regime utilized the position more than the last few coaching staffs and in 2013 I’m cautiously optimistic about the position.
Let’s take a closer look at the Bills’ tight ends and fullbacks and how they could perform in 2013.

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. They added one tight end in the draft and signed another off waivers, but nobody had yet risen to the top of the heap in the young offseason. With Chandler potentially back for Week 1, he may be able to walk right back into the starting job. However, there are some other names fighting for playing time and a roster spot to keep an eye on.
Let’s take a closer look at the current competitors, ranked from most likely to least likely to make the Bills’ final 53-man roster.
