Dolphins | Miami will not match Charles Clay offer

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 08:20:34 -0700

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay's five-year, $38 million offer sheet he signed with the Buffalo Bills will not be matched by the Dolphins, according to a source. Clay will now become a member of the Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Clay will become the starting tight end for the Bills and should have a solid role in the passing game. Clay probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point because the Bills' uncertain quarterback situation. The Dolphins will go with Jordan Cameron as their starter, and he could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end for owners.

Bills | Buffalo expected to land Charles Clay

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 11:49:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is expected to land with the Buffalo Bills after signing a five-year, $38 million offer sheet with Buffalo Tuesday, March 17, according to a source. The Dolphins have five days to match the offer sheet, but they aren't expected to. Clay is set to make $24.5 million in the first two years of the deal. The total deal is only for $38 million for five years. Miami's last offer to Clay was for four years and $27 million, including less than $14 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: After the Dolphins signed Jordan Cameron to be their tight end, it was basically a foregone conclusion that Clay wouldn't be back in Miami. In Buffalo, he'll join a suddenly much more formidable offense. However, the quarterback situation remains unsettled, and Clay may get lost in the shuffle for aerial targets. He's probably best left as a midrange TE2 with some upside on draft day.

Bills | Charles Clay signs offer sheet from Bills

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 16:27:20 -0700

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay signed an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, March 17. The Dolphins have five days to match the offer.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills offense is already stacked with RB LeSean McCoy and WRs Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin. Clay would add to an already potent offense, but the problem is at quarterback, where either Matt Cassel or EJ Manuel will likely be starting. Mediocre quarterback play hinders Clay's value, but he should certainly be capable of low-end TE1 numbers in 2015.

Bills | Buffalo has good shot at Charles Clay

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:06:11 -0700

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay visited with the Buffalo Bills late last week, and the Bills have a "90%" chance of landing him, according to a source close to the situation. The Bills plan to follow through with their plan to sign him to an offer sheet. Head coach Rex Ryan has been the driving force in the pursuit of Clay. Buffalo continues to study their salary cap numbers and those of the Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Look for Clay to Buffalo to become official later this week. Clay will join a much different Buffalo offense under Ryan, and he probably won't receive enough targets to be anything more than a weak TE2 option. Clay could also be much more involved in the run game as a blocker.

Browns | Cleveland unlikely to land Charles Clay

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:59:10 -0700

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is unlikely to sign with the Cleveland Browns, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Clay is expected to land with the Buffalo Bills and their retooled offense this offseason. Clay had his moments with the Dolphins, but he really wasn't anything more than a TE2 for fantasy owners. If he indeed signs with the Bills, he'll join a team with plenty of weapons on that side of the ball, and he could be asked to block more often in Rex Ryan's ground-and-pound offensive philosophy. Consider Clay a low-end TE2 if he goes to Buffalo.

Dolphins | Miami halts talks with Charles Clay

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 16:30:49 -0700

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is no longer in contract talks with the team, and the Dolphins are waiting on an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Unless the Bills offer is surprisingly low, it seems unlikely that Miami would be willing to match to retain Clay after just committing to another tight end, Jordan Cameron, in free agency. Assuming Clay does end up with the Bills, he has the potential to be a low-end TE1.

Dolphins | Dolphins finished pursuing Charles Clay?

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 18:34:50 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay is no longer in the team's plans, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: If Clay does end up signing elsewhere, Jordan Cameron would be Miami's main pass-catching tight end and a much more consistent fantasy option.
