Charles Clay to Buffalo

AFC East Update

The Miami Dolphins have declined to match the Buffalo Bills’ 5-year $38 million dollar offer to tight end Charles Clay after assigning him the Transition Tag. The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money in a front-loaded structure designed to discourage Miami from matching the offer. The 28-year-old move tight end struggled with injuries last season but burst onto the scene in 2013 with a 69/759/6 line. Clay takes over for Scott Chandler (now in New England) as the Bills’ starting tight end. With a $7.6 million annual price tag it will be interesting to see how often Clay is utilized and whether or not he becomes a complete tight end that can be an in-line blocker in the running game. Recently signed Jordan Cameron, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, is expected to take over for Clay in South Florida.
