The New England Patriots have made a move to add tight end depth to their roster. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots have agreed to terms with world-renowned Patriot killer Scott Chandler.
It will be interesting to see how he co-exists with the Patriots current tight end depth in Michael Hoomanwanui and Tim Wright. He’s a better blocker than Wright, but probably not equal to Hoomanawanui in that area. At the same time, Wright offers some more versatility as a receiver.
My reaction when news broke of the Chandler signing:
Scott Chandler to the Patriots might be the most Belichick move I've ever seen Belichick make.— Greg Knopping (@patspulpit) March 13, 2015
Scott Chandler's contract: 10 years/$100MM. I'm just assuming. He's the greatest TE of all-time, right? From what I've seen at least...— Greg Knopping (@patspulpit) March 13, 2015
The $100 million contract has yet to be confirmed.
