The Facts: The Bills announced they released Clay on Friday.
Diehards Line:Clay was entering the final year of a five-year, $38 million contract after the Bills signed him to an offer sheet to lure him from the Dolphins, who had applied the transition tag. He will count $4.5 million against the Bills’ salary cap, but the team will save $4.5 million. Clay, 30, had a career-low 184 yards receiving last season and no touchdowns. Jason Croom currently is the only tight end of the Bills’ roster.
