“We just finished a renegotiation on Charles Clay,” said Whaley. “And there are other guys we may want to extend.”
The Bills are expected to release veteran DE Mario Williams at some point to boost their total cap space for free agency, but it wouldn’t hurt to gain some addition room, given that OT Cordy Glenn and G Richie Incognito are in line to be free agents.
Clay, 27, is in the second year of his five-year, $38 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $1.5 million to go along with a roster bonus of $10 million for the 2016 season.
According to OverTheCap.com, reworking Clay’s contract could create as much as $8 million in cap space.
In 2015, Clay appeared in 13 games for the Bills and recorded 51 receptions for 528 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
