There are an immense amount of arguments for each player on the Miami Dolphins, but Sunday’s game would have not ended with the same result without tight end Charles Clay.
Clay, who would have been the backup for injured Dustin Keller, has evidently showed Joe Philbin and staff why he is the right man for the job this season. And on Sunday, well, let’s just say he didn’t disappoint.
The three-year player recorded a rushing touchdown and five receptions for 109 yards in the 24-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. His statistics are just a complement to his performance on Sunday.
When second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill was targeting for a receiver, consistently it was Clay who found the ball. Aside from scoring a rushing touchdown, his blocking along with full back Tyler Clutts had an enormous impact to the running game.
Hats off to Clay’s contribution. Be sure to keep an eye on him next week against the Falcons’ mediocre linebacking core .
