The Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement to re-sign starting tight end Scott Chandler.

The move was announced by the team Thursday, two days after the NFL's free agency period opened.

Chandler is a seventh-year player coming off a year in which he set career highs with 53 catches and 655 yards. In three-plus seasons in Buffalo, he has combined for 135 catches for 1,623 yards and 14 touchdowns in 59 games.

He scored six touchdowns in both 2011 and 2012, both times matching franchise single-season highs for tight ends.

Chandler's return solidifies a spot that lacked experienced depth. Lee Smith was used more in blocking situations. In December, Buffalo signed Tony Moeaki, who has been sidelined by injuries for two of the past three seasons.
