TE Charles Clay signs offer sheet with Bills-- Tue Mar 17 7:37 pm --
Miami has five days to match
The Buffalo Bills’ courtship of Charles Clay feels like it’s lasted longer than a Kardashian marriage.
Whether the Miami Dolphins’ tight end actually gets hitched to the team wooing him is now up to his current employer. The Buffalo News learned Tuesday night that Clay has signed an offer sheet from the Bills. The Dolphins now have five days under the terms of the transition tag to decide whether they want to match the offer - which The News has learned is for five years and up to $38 million, with $20 million in guarantees - or let Clay go to their AFC East rivals.

FF Today's Take:It's being reported that the Bills offer includes $24.5 million over the first two seasons which could make it difficult to match. The deal is rich enough that it's likely Miami will let Clay go and move forward with newly signed tight end Jordan Cameron. Clay was given the transition tag by the Dolphins but won't receive any compensation if he jets for Buffalo.
TE Jordan Cameron to sign in Miami afterall?-- Thu Mar 12 8:00 pm --
After early reports linked him to Cleveland
After multiple media outlets reported the Browns were going to re-sign tight end Jordan Cameron comes another published report saying the Dolphins are now set to make a deal with one of the better unsigned players left on the market.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports, the Dolphins are in the process of finishing up a deal, a Pro Bowler in 2013.
However, if Cameron were to sign with Cleveland, Clay would seemingly most be in play for Buffalo or Miami.
FF Today's Take:It appears the Dolphins will win the Cameron sweepstakes but until the ink is dry no deal is official in this year's free agency. Cameron's fantasy potential may rise a bit while operating in a better pass offense, but he will need to first prove he is back to full strength after suiting up in only ten games during the 2014 regular season. Charles Clay figures to be a decent consolation prize as the next best option at the position.
