Free agent tight end Fred Davis, who said he’ll be visiting the Bills Thursday, is well aware that the Bills have a capable starting tight end in Scott Chandler on the roster. Much like Davis, Chandler is coming off major offseason surgery. Chandler is coming off an ACL repair, while Davis had his ruptured Achilles re-attached. But Davis likes the idea of the two of them together on the field.
Appearing on PFC radio Wednesday, Davis was asked about the presence of Chandler on Buffalo’s roster and how it was explained to him by the Bills brass in his dinner with them last weekend.
“(I felt good about) just the conversation we had and the offense with what we would do if I was there,” Davis said. ”Me and Chandler together if he comes back healthy I’m sure there would be a lot of two tight end sets. I saw what he did making plays and scoring touchdowns. He’s the red zone man up there.”
Davis also knows the Bills are likely to draft a quarterback and sees that development as a good thing for a tight end too.
“The offense that they’re running, it’s very tight end friendly and if you add a rookie QB the tight end is the safety net,” said Davis. ”So there would be a lot of opportunities and whoever the other tight end would be.”
Davis said more than once that he’s not looking to be a star addition, just a contributor wherever he lands in the free agent market.
“If I can help and be a piece to the puzzle, that’s all that really matters to me,” he said. ”I’m not a big town guy, what matters to me is being on a good team with good people around you with good coaches that can help you win.”
