The Buffalo Bills will land tight end Charles Clay, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter:

The Miami Dolphins placed the transition tag on Clay this offseason, giving him a $7.071 million tender, but allowing him to negotiate with other teams. Miami would retain the right of first refusal for any offer to which Clay agreed, with five days to make the decision. The team, however, will not match according to Schefter.

Miami signed tight end Jordan Cameron in free agency this offseason. The team did seem to want to have Clay return to the club, pairing Clay with Cameron, along with Dion Sims. Clay had stated he wanted to return to Miami as well, but a five-year, $38 million contract now has him heading to Buffalo.
