RPT: Dolphins move on from Clay, tight end joins Bills

The Miami Dolphins had five days to match the Buffalo Bills' hefty offer to tight end Charles Clay. Turns out, they didn't need all that long to make a decision.

According to multiple media reports, the former Dolphins' pass-catcher will make the cross-division move to Buffalo, as Miami, which put the transition tag Clay, has decided to move on.

The Dolphins recently signed Jordan Cameron and are apparently just fine pairing him with Dion Sims as the 1-2 tandem. Reportedly, the money was equally a factor.

The Buffalo News has more:
"It was widely believed through league circles the Bills had structured the offer in such a way that the Dolphins, having already made big offseason investments of their own that consumed much of their salary cap, wouldn't be able to match," writes Vic Carucci. "The $24.5 million Clay will be paid through the first two years of the contract were seen as the primary obstacle to Miami's ability to match."
