When the Dallas Cowboys host the Buffalo Bills at Cowboys Stadium this Sunday, they will see a number of familiar faces, guys who, at one time or another, were associated with the team. To be exact, by our count, there will be three of them. And here they are:
Chan Gailey, Head Coach.
Gailey took over as head coach of the Cowboys back in 1998, after the departure of Barry Switzer, and won the division in his first season with the team. The Cowboys earned a wildcard berth in his second season as head coach, but once again failed to win a game in the playoffs. Following the 1999 season, Gailey headed to Miami to serve as the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator--because going to Miami is just what ex-Cowboys do. After Miami, Gailey spent six seasons as head coach at Georgia Tech. He returned to the NFL in 2008 as the OC of the Chiefs, and in 2010, got the head coaching job for Buffalo.
Scott Chandler, Tight End.
After spending two seasons with San Diego, the team that drafted him, in 2007 and 2008, Chandler spent 2009 on the Cowboys’ and Giants’ practice squads. He was shortly a member of the Cowboys’ active roster in 2010, but after being cut in December of that year, was picked up by Buffalo. This season, he’s become a major red zone threat for the Bills, recording 18 catches for 157 yards and six touchdowns.
Sam Young, Tackle.
Drafted by the Cowboys in the sixth round in 2010, Young was waived by the team in September, and picked up by the Bills. He has appeared in three games this season, with no starts.
