While the quarterback position for the Buffalo Bills is uncertain, one thing that is certain is whoever their signal caller is, could use a 6’7″ security blanket.
Scott Chandler fits that bill and says he will be ready to go at the beginning of training camp.
Chandler had ACL surgery and was projected to come back to the Bills at the beginning of the regular season, at the earliest. However, he has recovered faster than anticipated and is a month ahead of schedule. Chandler says he will continue to put the work in and make sure he is in shape once the season begins.
“My guess I’m not just going to go in there all the way,” Chandler told Buffalobills.com. ”I’m just worried about getting my lungs in shape and my legs. That’s what this next month and a half is for. It’s not vacation. It’s nothing like that. I’m going to be working just as hard as I have been and I’m going to be ready to go.”
Chandler has become Mr. Touchdown for the Bills, as he scored six touchdowns while catching less than 50 passes in each of his past two seasons. With Buffalo’s running game peaking with CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson, Chandler could compliment a passing game for either Kevin Kolb or EJ Manuel, both of which are learning a new offensive system.
