DAVIE, Fla. – The Charles Clay era in South Florida is over.

According to a team source, the Dolphins have refused to match the offer the tight end received from the Bills; allowing the 4-year NFL veteran to continue his career in Buffalo.

The Dolphins had previously tagged Clay as a transition player, allowing the team to match any offer he had received from other clubs.

Earlier this week, the Bills signed Clay to five-year, $38 million deal, giving Miami five days to match.

However, Dolphins officials didn't keep Clay in suspense and determined he was free to go.

Miami signed former Browns star Jordan Cameron during the first week of free agency and apparently feel comfortable with him and Dion Sims as their tight ends.

The team source added that the Dolphins are set to meet with quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and center J.D. Walton to Davie for to meet with them.
