Dolphins don’t match Bills offer sheet for Charles Clay

The Dolphins had more time to think about it, but they’ve apparently got a bracket to fill out.

PFT has learned that the Dolphins have elected to not match Buffalo’s offer sheet for transition-tagged tight end Charles Clay.

They get no compensation in the deal, and Clay gets a five-year, $38 million contract out of the deal.

The Dolphins actually did Clay a solid, rather than dragging this out for the full five days.

After signing Jordan Cameron to go with Dion Sims, Clay was a luxury buy, at least at the numbers the Bills put in front of him.

Clay now goes to a Buffalo offense that has seemingly everything but a quarterback, but his presence may allow them to find a measure of success with either Matt Cassel or EJ Manuel at quarterback.
