Marker Dolphins decline to match Charles Clay’s offer from Bills [1:53 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: '“He’s a mismatch against linebackers, safeties and even some cornerbacks,” said Troy Drayton, a former Dolphins tight end and an analyst for the team. “His versatility is something you’re going to miss in this offense. It was a great business move by Buffalo.”'

Marker Bills acquire Clay after Dolphins decide not to match offer [1:52 AM]
AP reports: 'Miami faces salary-cap constraints after signing All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a $114 million, six-year contract last week.'

Marker Clay headed to Buffalo after Dolphins decline to match offer [1:51 AM]

Marker Dolphins pass, Bills add TE Clay [1:50 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'For only about $1 million more -- $8,347,000 -- the Dolphins could have used the franchise designation to retain Clay. In the event of him signing with another team, the Dolphins could have received two first-round picks in return, the type of deterrent that likely would have kept the Bills -- who don't have a first-rounder in 2015 -- at bay.'

Marker Bills get their man: Dolphins will not match offer for TE Clay [1:49 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Even though the Bills have now successfully signed a transition tagged player, they will not owe the Dolphins any draft pick compensation. The transition tag only guaranteed the right of first refusal to Miami.'

Marker Bills land TE Charles Clay [1:48 AM] reports: 'His greatest asset as he now joins Buffalo’s offense is his versatility. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman likes multi-faceted players and Clay’s ability to line up outside, in line, as an H-back or in the offensive backfield will provide Roman with many different pre-snap alignments.'

Marker Obama’s proposed end to stadium tax breaks goes wide right [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“This provision would limit the City of Buffalo and Erie County’s options for building a new stadium for the Bills and possibly harm efforts to keep the Bills in Western New York, and I will oppose it,” Schumer said. “I do not think it has much chance of passing.”'

Marker Brandon Spikes says he's still open to returning to Buffalo Bills [1:58 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Honestly I can't put it into words. It reminds me of a place I used to play down in the Gainesville called the Swamp. It's the truth. I really appreciate those fans up there because I hadn't experienced that since I had been in the NFL and that just gave me the boost to get up every morning and get my job done."'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan reportedly went to Baylor to work out QB Bryce Petty [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Petty, who will be 24 when he begins his NFL career, comes from a spread offense that didn't force him to take snaps from under center or make multiple reads. He also has quite the injury list that includes multiple knee injuries, multiple concussions and a broken back. Petty is easy to fall for because of his physical tools and leadership, but there are plenty of reasons to be weary of his pro prospects.'

Marker Bills sign Harvin; confirm they've made offer to sign Clay [1:56 AM]
AP reports: 'Harvin is a dynamic receiver and special-teams returner, who joins his fourth team in two years. He opened last season with Seattle before being traded to the New York Jets.'

Marker Bills land Harvin [1:55 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Harvin's career got off to a great start after he was honored as the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2009 with Minnesota. Since entering the league, he has averaged 6.7 yards after the catch, which is good for the highest average among all receivers with at least 300 receptions.'

Marker Bills sign Miami TE Clay to offer sheet [1:54 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Terms of the offer weren't disclosed by the Bills, but reported the contract to be worth $38 million over five years, including $24.5 million over the first two years. Under the transition tag, Clay would have earned just $7.7 million in 2015 with the Dolphins, although Miami was reportedly trying to work out a long-term deal.'

Marker Bills announce signing of WR Harvin [1:53 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills will be Harvin's fourth team in three years after the New York Jets released him rather than pay his $10.5 million salary for 2015.'

Marker Percy Harvin, Bills officially sign on the dotted line [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The wideout's struggle to fit within a locker room since he was a first-round pick out of the University of Florida in the 2009 NFL Draft has been well documented. Harvin, 26, was first traded from the Minnesota Vikings to the Seattle Seahawks for a first, a third, and a seventh-round draft pick. After only one-and-a-half seasons in Seattle, the Seahawks elected to move on and trade him to the Jets for a conditional pick.'

Marker WR Percy Harvin officially signs with Buffalo [1:51 AM] reports: 'Harvin, who turns 27 in May, is a game breaking talent who will further increase the speed quotient on Buffalo’s offense. He was picked up by plane by Bills receivers coach Sanjay Lal on Wednesday and flown to Buffalo for a free agent visit. Seeing what’s been assembled both on the Bills offensive staff and the offensive side of the ball convinced Harvin that Buffalo is a team that can contend for the postseason.'

Marker Bills sign TE Charles Clay to offer sheet [1:50 AM] reports: 'The Bills appear to be pushing all their chips to the middle of the table at tight end when it comes to landing Clay. They sent head coach Rex Ryan, offensive coordinator Greg Roman and tight ends coach Tony Sparano Jr. to pick up Clay on a private jet last Tuesday, the first day of free agency. The trio of coaches brought him back to Buffalo for a free agent visit. A day later the club released veteran TE Scott Chandler.'

Marker Clay signs $38 million offer sheet from Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That per-year average of $7.6 million would make Clay the fourth-highest paid tight end in the NFL, behind only Seattle’s Jimmy Graham ($10 million), Jacksonville’s Julius Thomas ($9.2 million) and Amherst native Rob Gronkowski of New England ($9 million).'

Marker Reports: Bills sign tight end Clay to rich offer sheet [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Buffalo News reported Tuesday that the deal is five years in length and worth $38 million with more than $20 million guaranteed. Fox Sports said the deal is worth $24.5 million over the first two years.'

Marker Buffalo Bills reportedly sign Charles Clay to offer sheet; Dolphins have five days to match [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Bills general manager Doug Whaley mentioned at the NFL Scouting Combine that new offensive coordinator Greg Roman likes to utilize the tight end position. After cutting veteran Scott Chandler and moving on from backup Lee Smith, it was obvious the team was all-in on Clay. He has played four seasons in Miami and had at least 50 receptions and more than 600 receiving yards in each of the last two seasons. He's athletic enough to play the "move" role on offense and make plays out of the backfield or as an in-line tight end.'

Marker Charles Clay signs pricey offer sheet with Bills; Dolphins have 5 days to respond [1:56 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'The deal is reportedly structured in a way to exploit the Dolphins’ expected salary cap issues in 2016. Next year, Ndamukong Suh will cost $28.6 million against the cap and Ryan Tannehill would cost another $16.2 if he plays under the fifth-year option. The Dolphins will almost assuredly want to sign Tannehill to an extension before then to provide cap relief.'

Marker Charles Clay reportedly lands five-year, $38 million contract from Bills that Dolphins can match [1:55 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: 'According to NFL Network, the Dolphins' final offer to Clay was four-years, $27 million, and less than $15 million of that deal was going to be fully guaranteed.'

Marker Clay is nice player - but at Buffalo's price? [1:54 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: 'But it's hard to see the Dolphins doing anything but shaking his hand and letting Buffalo have him. He had a career high of six touchdowns in 2013. He's a nice seam threat and a good guy to have on your team. But he's also battled knee issues and, while a presence, hasn't exactly been a force in many games.'

Marker AP source: Dolphins tight end Clay signs Bills' offer [1:53 AM]
AP reports: 'The Dolphins could be handcuffed by salary-cap constraints to match the Bills' offer after Miami signed free-agent All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a $114 million, six-year contract last week. It made Suh the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.'

Marker Bills sign TE Clay to offer sheet [1:52 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Miami Herald reported that the Dolphins weren't offering Clay more than $7 million per season in recent talks.'

Marker Bills sign Charles Clay to offer sheet, per report [1:51 AM]

Marker Interesting offseason for Bills [7:42 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Former Bills coach Marv Levy always maintained “the most important free agents you sign are your own.” And Buffalo has done that. Key, of course, was defensive end Jerry Hughes, a critical, but expensive cog in the Bills’ best unit. Since being acquired from Indianapolis in a trade for linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, now with the Dolphins, he has 20 sacks in two seasons with Buffalo.'

Marker If Ryan gets his way, Bills will acquire Clay [11:30 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'What’s the holdup making an offer? The same as it has been since Clay first became a Bills target. The Bills apparently are still studying their own cap numbers and those of the Dolphins to put them in the best possible position of making an offer Miami wouldn’t match.'

Marker Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins still playing waiting game with Charles Clay [1:59 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Miami has grown so impatient, in fact, that while it is keeping the transition tag on Clay, the front office is fully expecting him to be with the Bills. If and when the Bills come through with an offer sheet, the Dolphins will have five days to match, but Buffalo is reportedly crafting such an offer that will make matching the offer difficult for Miami.'

Marker Refresher: where do things stand with Bills and Charles Clay? [1:58 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'If somehow the Bills were to miss out on Clay, or the Dolphins change their minds and decide to pony up for the tight end, Buffalo could still look to one other notable free agent that is still unsigned. Former Cincinnati tight end Jermaine Gresham has yet to sign with a team, even after being courted by the Oakland Raiders early on into free agency. He could be an option if all else fails.'

Marker Tight end, guard top list of Bills’ needs [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Clay has gone from a logical target in free agency to a “must-get” for Whaley. The Bills cleared out cap space to do so by releasing last year’s starter at the position, Scott Chandler, and also let blocking tight end Lee Smith leave as an unrestricted free agent. That leaves the Bills with just two players with NFL experience on the roster in Chris Gragg and MarQueis Gray, as well as a project in former Canisius College basketball player Chris Manhertz.'
