The Buffalo Bills were so bad for so long at the tight end position during their league-leading playoff drought (and even before that started, to be frank) that the "emergence" of Scott Chandler - who caught 81 passes for 960 yards and 12 touchdowns in 29 games between 2011 and 2012 - was considered a breath of fresh air to most Bills fans.

And, frankly, he was. Buffalo is now mediocre at tight end thanks to Chandler's last two seasons. What remains to be seen is whether or not the team will place more emphasis on ascending from that ranking under the new direction of head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, who will implement a faster-paced offense. This position has been an offensive afterthought for the Bills for quite a while, and with the front office intact, that might not change.
