Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, citing a “knowledgable source,” reports that the Dolphins have “lost patience” with and have “moved on” from TE Charles Clay.
- According to Graham, the current expectation from the Dolphins is that Clay will end up signing with the Bills.
- Graham mentions that the Dolphins are expected to keep the transition tag on Clay, which will give them the opportunity to match an offer he receives.
- Graham adds that Miami has apparently turned the page.
Miami signed former Browns TE Jordan Cameron to a two-year contract earlier in the week and were reportedly trying to sign Clay to a long-term deal, but it appears as though contract talks may have hit a snap.
Vic Carucci reported that the Bills are still expected to to submit an offer sheet to Clay at some point this weekend, but we’ve yet to hear when that will be.
It’s worth mentioning that the Browns could still be in play for Clay.
Clay, 25, caught 58 passes for 605 yards receiving and three touchdowns over the course of 14 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 14 tight end out of 67 qualifying players.
We’ll have more updates regarding Clay as the news is available.
