Chandler sat out Wednesday's minicamp session with an undisclosed injury, reports.

The tight end's injury doesn't appear serious and with Tim Wright no longer in the Patriots' mix, the 6-7 Chandler could merit attention in deeper formats if he carves out a notable complementary role behind starter Rob Gronkowski, specifically as a red zone weapon.

Chandler has reached an agreement to join the Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Chandler moves from a team lacking talent at his position to a team with the NFL's best tight end. He thus seems unlikely to maintain his low-end production from Buffalo, so long as Rob Gronkowski stays healthy. Of course, that's far from a given, as Gronkowski has a lengthy injury history. Unfortunately, there aren't many leagues in which it makes sense to hand-cuff a tight end, even the uber-talented and injury-prone Gronkowski.

Chandler was released by the Bills on Wednesday.

The Bills are overhauling their offense this offseason and look to be making a big play for Charles Clay in an effort to give him a deal the Dolphins won't match. Even if that doesn't happen, this is a new regime and Chandler's time in Buffalo is finished. The team still has plenty of cap room and trying to get a multi-skilled tight end appears to be at the top of the wish list. Chandler never quite fit that bill, though he definitely exceeded his price in four full seasons with the Bills, considering he was picked off the cut scrap heap late in 2010 and ended up logging 181 catches and 17 touchdowns.

Chandler finished the 2014 season with 47 catches on 70 targets for 497 yards and three scores.

Former coach Doug Marrone and coordinator Nathaniel Hackett never really figured out how to use the big Chandler effectively in the red zone, and he put up just five TD catches combined the last two seasons after having six each in 2011 and 2012. The Bills had a pretty poor offense in 2014, and there's talk about the team either drafting or picking up a more explosive tight end for new coach Rex Ryan and coordinator Greg Roman to go with rising wideout Sammy Watkins. We'll see if the Bills improve the position, but if they do it would mean Chandler's dull fantasy line would be primed to move farther off the radar.
