Expected to have to make some tough decisions in order to free up salary cap space, the Buffalo Bills made one Wednesday afternoon, releasing tight end Scott Chandler after five seasons with the team.
In five years with the Bills, Chandler caught 182 passes for 2,120 yards and 17 touchdowns. For 2014, his 47 receptions for 497 yards and three touchdowns ranked him fourth on the team in each category. Releasing him, however, saves the team $2.25 million in cap room this season, according to Spotrac’s contract data.
