Bills Release Tight End Charles Clay


After four seasons with the Buffalo Bills, veteran tight end Charles Clay has been released by the team.

What could be thought of as an unproductive four years in Buffalo, Clay finished his 2018 season with only 184 receiving yards on 21 catches. Even though he was targeted 36 times this season, Clay never found a solid position in the Bills offense. In his four years with the team, Clay never surpassed 558 yards in a season unlike his big 2013 and 2014 seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

The Bills will be looking to go younger at the tight end position, with the roster featuring just one tight end in Jason Croom since Logan Thomas is an impending free agent. They will also look to add depth in the draft. A name Bills fans should get familiar with is Irv Smith Jr., a tight end out of Alabama who played under Brian Daboll, then-offensive coordinator for the Crimson Tide, during the 2017 season.

This release by the Bills allows the team to save $4.5 million in cap space for the 2019 season and gives the team flexibility as to what key pieces they would like to add to the overall roster.
