DAILY REPORT
– Bills GM Doug Whaley joined WGR 550 this morning to discuss the team’s offseason thus far. Click here to listen to what Whaley had to say.

– The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has agreed to terms to re-sign TE Scott Chandler. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Chandler led Buffalo’s offense and set career-highs of 53 catches for 655 yards with two touchdowns in 2013. He holds a team record for the most consecutive games with a catch as a tight end (32), ranks fourth in team history at his position in receptions (135) and touchdowns (14) and is the only tight end in Buffalo’s history to record back-to-back 500 yard receiving campaigns (2012-2013).

In 59 career games (30 starts), Chandler has made 135 catches for 1,623 yards and 14 touchdowns. Chandler originally joined the Bills after being claimed and awarded off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys on December 3, 2010. The 6-7, 260-pound Iowa product entered the NFL as 2007 fourth-round draft pick of the San Diego Chargers. He spent the 2009 season on the Cowboys practice squad before being signed to the active roster of the New York Giants for the final two games.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Doug Whaley, Buffalo Bills General Manager on WGR 550
Q: What went in to the decision to re-sign Scott Chandler?
A: Easy decision. Leading receiver for us, big target, helps out our quarterback and he has leadership ability on the offense. It was something that we pegged as an important piece of the puzzle going forward and we’re happy to have him back.
