Cardinals Sign TE Charles Clay To One-Year Deal Worth Up To $3.25M


The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday that they’ve signed veteran TE Charles Clay to a contract. 

  • Adam Schefter reports that Clay receives a one-year contract worth up to $3.25 million that includes a $350,000 signing bonus.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Clay to a contract won’t impact the Cardinals’ 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason. 

Clay, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2011. After four years in Miami, the Bills signed him away from the Dolphins and gave him a five-year, $38 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed.

Clay was set to make a base salary of $4.5 million for the 2019 season when the Bills released him. 

In 2018, Clay appeared in 13 games for the Bills and caught 21 passes for 184 yards receiving and no touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 50 tight end out of 70 qualifying players.
