The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "privately indicated" they'd like to re-sign impending free agent TE Charles Clay.
This comes as no real surprise as Clay and DT Jared Odrick are Miami's top two free agents. Clay is coming off a down year where he fought through a season-long knee injury. It should help lower his price. Clay is one of the more versatile finesse tight ends in the league with the ability to line up in the backfield. Jan 25 - 11:10 AM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker believes the Dolphins will try to re-sign impending free agent TE Charles Clay before free agency begins.

Clay had a down year in 2014, catching 58 balls for 605 and three touchdowns while battling through knee and hamstring injuries. He is still one of the most versatile H-backs in the league, and would likely generate plenty of interest on the open market despite the down season. The Dolphins would be smart to lock him up early.

Charles Clay secured 5-of-6 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Clay finishes his contract year with 58 receptions for 605 yards and three touchdowns. He battled a knee injury for most of the season and struggled to establish a consistent role in first-year OC Bill Lazor's system. When healthy, Clay is one of the league's most underrated H-back/tight ends. He turns 26 in February. If the Fins let Clay hit the free agent market, he should generate plenty of interest because of his versatility. The Fins would be smarter to "buy low" and lock up Clay for the next few seasons.

Charles Clay secured 6-of-10 targets for 114 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

The Vikings have been stout versus tight ends all season, but Clay went to work on short and intermediate patterns, racking up three receptions for 40 yards in the first half. He was "vultured" in the red zone on a 14-yard touchdown pass to No. 2 tight end Dion Sims in the second quarter. Clay sparked Miami's offense on a third-quarter gain of 41 yards. We have very little beef with what first-year OC Bill Lazor has done with Miami's 2014 offense, but underutilizing Clay could be one quibble. The Dolphins will close out their season in Week 17 against the Jets.

Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) remained limited on Thursday.

The "limited" tags don't offer much insight into Clay's Week 14 status, as he's rarely gotten in full practices this season. Clay is tentatively expected to be ready for Sunday's showdown with the Ravens, but owners must have a back-up plan ready for their low-end TE1.
