He was perhaps the most significant free agent signing in the off-season. Until this week he has been invisible in Patriots training camp, his return will give a boost to their offense.Scott Chandler was supposed to get the Patriots offense back back to their two tight end set that was very successful when Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez were tearing apart opposing defenses. An injury in week one of training camp that was reportedly a leg injury has kept him out of action until this week.

His return to practice this week has provided another big target for Pats quarterbacks to throw to in the red zone. Tomorrow's game against the Carolina Panthers is the most important of the season as the starters get significant playing time of the preseason.

Chandler played 5 seasons with the Buffalo Bills where he caught 182 passes for 2,120 yards and 17 touchdowns.
