It's easy to say tight end Charles Clay left the Dolphins and signed with Buffalo because the Bills offered more money. But Clay, the fifth-year pro valued for his athleticism and good hands, said that would be short-sighted.
Clay said the Bills, who visit the Dolphins for an AFC East showdown Sunday afternoon, made him feel welcome and part of an organization that's moving in the right direction.
"From Day One, from the day free agency started, I felt valued," Clay said Wednesday on a conference call with South Florida reporters. "I felt like they wanted me here. And some of the things they were doing, I felt they were an organization on the rise and a fun community to play in.
"There were a lot of things about the situation. It definitely wasn't just me having an offer I couldn't refuse."
