Buffalo Bills Rumors: Charles Clay On Their Radar


The Buffalo Bills have had a sub-par or barely average tight end corps for the last couple of years with Scott Chandler as their leading tight end for just about everything.  They have also been hanging on to Lee Smith and Chris Gragg the past couple of years as well with little improvement.  Lee Smith is basically just a blocking tight end with minimal upside on the offensive production side of things.  Chris Gragg was drafted a couple of years ago as the next tight end for the Buffalo Bills and was in line to take Scott Chandler’s spot, but so far it doesn’t look like he has panned out very well either.

MarQueis Gray, came on late in the season, for the Bills last year and made some heads turn.  I would not be surprised if he made the team as the 2nd or third string tight end this year and we see Chris Gragg and Lee Smith move on.

Although with free agency coming up in about a week and a half, the Bills may have their eyes on another possible prospect at the tight end position; Charles Clay.

It has been rumored that the Miami Dolphins are interested in re-signing Charles Clay, but nothing has really come of it as to date.

Last year Clay had started 14 of 16 games for the Miami Dolphins last year.  Charles Clay finished with 58 receptions and 3 touchdowns for the season, which was a bit down, from his breakout season in 2013.  Clay has been in the league for 4 years and has spent all with the Dolphins.

I think that Charles Clay will be the tight end option that will be similar to Vernon Davis that Greg Roman had in his pocket in San Francisco. Clay is able to block, catch and play out of the backfield as an H-back or full back option.

Although did the Buffalo Bills show their interest in Clay to early? Will the added exposure to a team in the AFC East be enough to light a fire underneath the Miami Dolphins and move to get a deal done, before the market opens?

Is Charles Clay an option that would be welcomed in Buffalo, or are you looking for someone different to help the offensive production?
