Free-agent TE Charles Clay (Bills) signed a one-year contract Tuesday, Feb. 19, with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Spin: Clay's target, reception and fantasy-point totals have been declined in each of the last two seasons, and now he's going one from shaky offense to another. And although the Cards are in dire need of a pass-catching weapon like Clay, don't expect much more than a TE2 season.

Feb 19 12:20pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals are signing free-agent tight end Charles Clay to a one-year deal worth up to $3.25 million on Tuesday, according to a source. The deal includes a $350,000 signing bonus. Clay was an afterthought in Buffalo's offense the last couple years and had only 21 catches for 184 yards and no scores in 13 games last season. He's unlikely to produce much more in Arizona with Ricky Seals-Jones and veteran Jermaine Gresham also in the fold with a young quarterback still learning the speed of the NFL. Clay won't even be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues.

The Buffalo Bills released tight end Charles Clay on Friday. Clay provided only 21 catches (36 targets) for 184 yards (career-low 8.8 yards per catch) and no touchdowns in 13 games for Buffalo in 2018. He was rarely in the game plan for the Bills the last two seasons and won't be a very popular target on the free-agent market. His best season came in 2013 with the Dolphins when he had 69 receptions (103 targets) for 759 yards and six scores over a full season. The days of Clay being on fantasy rosters is over.

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was released Friday, Feb. 15.

Fantasy Spin: Clay is coming off a disappointing 2018 season and has been held to under 600 yards in each of the last four seasons. He should not be an option in most fantasy leagues even if he finds another starting job.

Jan 9 9:13pm ET

Buallo Bills TE Charles Clay, who has one year to go on his five-year, $38 million contract, 'almost surely' will be gone from the team when the 2019 league year begins in March. He carries a cap hit of $9 million, which would be sixth among tight ends next season, but if he were to be cut, that number would be cut in half, with the Bills saving $4.5 million in both real cash and cap space.

Dec 23 12:00pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Chris Ivory (shoulder) and tight end Charles Clay are inactive for Week 16 against the Patriots. Ivory practiced in full late in the week, so it's a surprise that he's not playing. With LeSean McCoy back as the lead ball carrier, rookie Keith Ford should back up Shady against New England. Ford has zero standalone fantasy value, while McCoy has settled in as an RB3/flex in this inconsistent offense that could be playing from behind all day. Clay is a healthy scratch and hasn't been on the fantasy radar all season long.

Dec 23 11:33am ET

The Buffalo Bills have declared TE Charles Clay, WR Ray-Ray McCloud, RB Chris Ivory, OG Vladimir Ducasse, S Dean Marlowe, CB Ryan Lewis and QB Derek Anderson inactive for Week 16.

Dec 2 12:10pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay (hamstring) is active in Week 13 against the Dolphins. Quarterback Derek Anderson (concussion) is out, while receivers Ray-Ray McCloud and tight end Logan Thomas are healthy scratches. Clay hasn't played since Nov. 4 and has just 19 catches on the year for 169 yards and no touchdowns, so he's probably not on anyone's fantasy radar in the final week before the fantasy playoffs.

Dec 1 10:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Dolphins in Week 13 after being a limited practice participant in each of the team's three practices this week. The 29-year-old has sat out the last two games and only saw eight plays against the Bears in Week 9 before exiting with the injury which means he has not seen a live pass since Oct. 29 against New England. While it appears that the eighth-year pro will be able to suit up against his former team, fantasy owners would be rolling the dice on a player who has not had more than four catches or 40 receiving yards this year. However, Clay does have a pretty strong history in seven games against the Dolphins, averaging 4.5 catches for 55.7 yards.

Buffalo Bills OG John Miller (oblique) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 13. QB Derek Anderson (concussion) was limited during practice but has been ruled out. TE Charles Clay (hamstring) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable.

Nov 29 6:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills OG John Miller (oblique) and TE Logan Thomas (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 29. QB Derek Anderson (concussion), TE Charles Clay (hamstring), CB Taron Johnson (shoulder) and CB Lafayette Pitts (concussion) were limited during practice.

Nov 29 3:30pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay (hamstring) and quarterback Derek Anderson (concussion) were both limited in practice on Thursday. Clay hasn't played since Nov. 4 but appears to be on track for a return against the Dolphins in Week 13. Clay has been a non-factor in real life and in fantasy all year, though, so he should remain on waiver wires everywhere. With rookie quarterback Josh Allen back and healthy, Anderson is purely QB depth in Buffalo.

Buffalo Bills OG John Miller (oblique), CB Lafayette Pitts (concussion), LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest) and DT Kyle Williams (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 28. QB Derek Anderson (concussion), TE Charles Clay (hamstring) and CB Taron Johnson (shoulder) were limited.

Nov 26 5:13pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) is making progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Nov 25 12:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills quarterback Derek Anderson (concussion) and tight end Charles Clay (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 12 against the Jaguars. Anderson was limited in practice all week, so he's clearly making progress. However, he'll merely be an insurance policy under center with rookie Josh Allen back in action. Matt Barkley will be Allen's backup on Sunday. Clay hasn't played since Nov. 4 and has 19 catches for 169 yards and no touchdowns on the season. Leave him to the waiver wire. Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud was also a healthy scratch.
