"Big Play Clay", the "Claymaker", both nicknames used when when Dolphins tight end Charles Clay had his breakout season and turned so many heads in the NFL. Since the beginning of this season however, Clay has been a huge non-factor due to an injury he suffered earlier in the offseason. Now after an extra week of rest to get healthy, Clay feels he's ready to rumble.
“It helped tremendously. Any time you just have time to relax and just let your body heal up, it’s very useful." Clay said. "Obviously, I took that time to just get away from the game of football, rehab as much as I can and kind of just re-charge the battery a little bit. I’m hoping for some big things starting this week.”
It's been incredibly difficult for Clay so far, having made such a big difference in the last season and now not being able to pull off what he knows he can do.
“It hasn’t gone as I planned. Obviously, I set very high standards for myself." Clay said. "Like I said, the bye week kind of gave us a chance to look back at those things, kind of look back and figure out how I could correct them. It’s just a matter of doing it now. I’m ready to go.”
If this is indeed the case, then Clay will be a big help when the Dolphins face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Going up against a team with an elite quarterback, the Dolphins will need all hands on deck to come out on top, and Clay could very well find himself being the difference maker.
