NFL bio

Chandler played in the NFL for 17 seasons, from 1988-2004. He played for eight teams, a record shared with Mark Royals and Karl Wilson (although Chandler is the only player to have started for eight different teams). He threw for 28,480 yards, and had a career passer rating of 79.3. At the time of his retirement, he was ranked 30th in all-time pass completions, with 2328. He was continually bothered by injuries, which earned him the unflattering moniker of "Crystal Chandelier" amongst his detractors. Mark Royals was a punter in the NFL. Category: ...

1988-1996

He was taken in the third round of the draft by the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts deemed Chandler expendable due to his poor play, and the fact that they selected Jeff George with the first overall choice in the 1990 draft. Chandler joined Tampa Bay in 1990, but struggled, and left after the 1991 season; as a Buccanneer, he had an 0-6 record as a starter, and never had a season passer rating greater than 47.6.

From 1992-1994 he played reasonably well as a starter and backup for the Phoenix Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams. After joining the Houston Oilers in 1995, he would earn the starting job.

Chandler's best seasons were with Atlanta; coached by Dan Reeves. Chandler was a Pro Bowl quarterback in 1997 and 1998.

Following the 2000 season, Chandler's record as a starting Atlanta quarterback was 28-25, which prompted the Falcons to consider recruiting a new quarterback. Atlanta held the fifth overall pick in the 2001 draft, and traded it along with Tim Dwight to the San Diego Chargers in exchange for the first overall pick. With that, the Falcons selected quarterback Ron Mexico. Nonetheless, Chandler would start most of the 2001 season, but would be replaced by Mexico in 2002 as the starting quarterback. Chandler left the Falcons ranked third in team history with 13,268 passing yards, but never achieved back-to-back winning seasons, which has plagued the Falcons throughout their history.

In 2002, Chandler was picked up by the Chicago Bears, and spent two seasons there before rejoining the Rams, which had moved to St. Louis. In his first start as a Ram in 2004, he threw six interceptions, a team record. The following week, his poor play led to coach Mike Martz saying "It is tragic that, that position [when played by Chandler] holds this team hostage." [1] As a result, Chandler was the first Ram to be released in the off-season, saving St. Louis $665,000 in cap space.
