when the team signed tight end Charles Clay to a five-year Authentic Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , $38 million contract with $24.5 million guaranteed during the 2015 off-season. The results, especially during the 2018 season, have been underwhelming. In four seasons in Western New York, Clay has caught 178 passes for 1,822 yards with nine touchdowns, numbers that mirror his four years with the Miami Dolphins (161 receptions for 1,809 yards with 14 touchdowns). Last year, Clay regressed big-time, catching 21 passes (on only 36 targets) for 184 yards and no touchdowns—the first season where Clay was held without a touchdown catch. It was his lowest catch output since 2012, his second year in the league, and it represented a career-low in receiving yards. Clay did miss three games due to injury and has missed ten games over the last four years in Buffalo. Prior to the 2018 season, Clay had been targeted at least 70 times in each of the last five seasons. With a base salary of $4.5 million and a cap hit of $9 million, the Bills are paying a lot of money for a player who underachieved in 2018, but the Bills could move on from Clay’s contract and be on the hook for only $4.5 million. So Phillip Gaines Jersey , could the Bills move on from Clay before the 2019 season? Internally, there are two other tight ends under team control heading into the 2019 season: Jason Croom and Logan Thomas.Croom actually led Buffalo’s tight ends in receptions (22), yards (259), and touchdowns (one) last year, appearing in 15 games (three starts). Croom, 24, was more than serviceable in the blocking game, and he was more than capable in his route-running. Croom, who was a wide receiver at the University of Tennessee, was a pre-season breakout candidate last year, and should have an even bigger role in Brian Daboll’s offense in 2019—especially with how Croom (6-foot-5) can present match-up problems to the opposition. Croom would make a logical replacement for Clay if the Bills decide to part ways with the veteran. Thomas, 27, caught 12 passes (17 targets) for 77 yards in 12 games (three starts). The former collegiate quarterback at Virginia Tech has oozed potential, but that potential has yet to translate onto the field as Thomas has struggled in the blocking sector. A restricted free agent Authentic Jeremy Kerley Jersey , Thomas appears unlikely to head into the season as the favorite to win the starting tight-end job. While Clay is the more established tight end, he also costs more than his productivity merits. With Josh Allen entering his second year, he will need all of the offensive weapons he can get, and at this stage of their careers, Croom appears to be the best internal bet to start at tight end in 2019. For a Bills team that needs to get more out of their tight ends, it would make sense for the Bills to release Clay and give Croom a chance to show what he can bring to the offense. When the Buffalo Bills travel to New Jersey to take on the New York Jets this weekend, there is a sliver of hope that their rookie quarterback will be able to play. Josh Allen, who has missed the last three games due to an elbow sprain he suffered against the Houston Texans, is trending towards a return.Head coach Sean McDermott said that Allen is “progressing well with his elbow,” and even discussed the workload his rookie quarterback has taken on over the last few days. Allen has begun throwing as part of his rehab, even progressing as far as throwing “100 balls this morning,” McDermott said. According to the head coach, that number represents approximately a full practice workload.While McDermott is aware of the perception that resting Allen through the bye week, which comes after Buffalo’s game against the Jets Cheap Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , would be the best move, he said he is going to rely heavily on the team’s doctors to make any decision about allowing Allen to return to the lineup. When discussing the injury, McDermott said that “everything happens for a reason,” and Allen has made the most of his time on the sideline while injured. McDermott said that you never want to take valuable reps away from a young player, but Allen has been able to take a step back and continue learning while he has been sidelined. Also of note regarding the quarterback pecking order was a status update on Derek Anderson. McDermott said that the veteran remains in concussion protocol, and if he is able to play, but Allen is still not ready, then it will be Anderson, not Nathan Peterman, starting against the Jets. The veteran has surpassed Peterman on the depth chart, although his status for Sunday’s game remains as up in the air as Allen’s.If neither Allen nor Anderson is ready to go, McDermott did say that Peterman would start over Matt Barkley, although he was not as decisive as he was when asked about choosing between Anderson and Peterman. When asked if Peterman would start over Barkley, McDermott said Authentic Marcus Murphy Jersey , “That would be correct at this point and time, yes.” In other injury news, McDermott said that Tremaine Edmunds, like Anderson, remains in the concussion protocol after missing last week’s game due to the heady injury he suffered against the New England Patriots. Trent Murphy is week-to-week with the knee injury that has sidelined him for the past two contests. Charles Clay injured his hamstring against the Chicago Bears, and McDermott said that the veteran tight end is week-to-week, meaning that he is unlikely to play against New York this Sunday. Logan Thomas and Jason Croom combined to catch 10 passes for 76 yards on 13 targets in Clay’s absence, and if the veteran misses more time, it will allow both young players extended auditions in a more prominent role.Chris Ivory suffered a shoulder sprain against the Bears, and he was sent to Erie County Hospital after the game as a precaution. McDermott said that the coaching staff wanted to make sure that there was nothing more seriously wrong with Ivory given the symptoms he was reporting. The veteran running back is considered day-to-day.
