According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the representatives for tight end Charles Clay has approached the team about a new deal but everything has been put on hold as of now. This is because they want to make sure that his surgically repaired knee holds up and that he repeats last year’s breakout year.
To put things into comparison, Kyle Rudolph of the Minnesota Vikings, caught 30 passes for 313 yards and received a five-year, $36 million dollar deal. Clay had 69 catches for 759 yards so his deal will be well north of that.
Clay aggravated his lingering knee injury at the Dolphins scrimmage game a few weeks ago but has told people that he will definitely play in the season opener against the New England Patriots.
