The Bills have reportedly claimed TE Scott Chandler off waivers. The second-year player was put on waivers by the Dallas Cowboys after they signed another tight end off their practice squad to their active roster.
Martin Rucker was the practice squad tight end that was promoted after the Bills reportedly tried to sign him off the Cowboys practice squad. Dallas moved Chandler off their roster to make room for Rucker and Chandler was reportedly claimed by Buffalo.
Chandler is familiar to Bills GM Buddy Nix, since the San Diego Chargers drafted him with their fourth-round pick in 2007. Makes you wonder if Buffalo made a move on Rucker, in the hopes that the Cowboys would add him to their active roster and waive Chandler, wanting Chandler all along.
No confirmation by the team at this point, though NFL.com already has his bio associated with the Bills.
Chandler (6’7″ 272) appeared in nine games for the Cowboys this season, serving primarily in a blocking role.
