"Scott Chandler"The Buffalo Bills have successfully retained another key member of their receiving attack before the start of free agency after tight end Scott Chandler agreed to a two-year contract extension on Thursday.

So when the time came to decide between giving a try to free agency or re-signing with Buffalo where he enjoyed a breakout season last year, the choice was easy, said Chandler after signing the contract with the team.

“I can’t see anywhere else in the league where I fit better than Buffalo,” Chandler said. “I know the offense. I know the coaching staff. I know the players. It’s a great fit for me. I think it’s a great fit for the Bills. And I’m excited to be back.”

He becomes the second weapon retained by the Bills before the free agency opens next week. Bills have re-signed leading receiver Stevie Johnson to a five-year contract on Monday.

Chandler was so excited about the deal that he announced it himself on his Twitter account, by writing: “Nowhere else I want to be!”

Selected by San Diego in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL draft, Chandler had difficulty finding his niche in the NFL. He played only one game over two seasons with the Chargers, and then split the next two years between the New York Giants and Dallas, before the Cowboys waived him during the 2010 season. The 26-year-old had 38 catches for 389 yards and 6 touchdowns and tied a single-season franchise record with six touchdowns last season.

With Johnson also returning, Chandler senses a wave of confidence in Buffalo for a team that’s gone 12 years without making the playoffs.
