TE Clay gives Dolphins much-needed punch

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Charles Clay's emergence as a hybrid tight end with a big-play knack has given the Miami Dolphins' offense some much-needed punch.

In the past four games, Clay has 24 receptions for 294 yards and three scores, increasing his season totals to 60 catches for 678 yards. He has scored a team-high seven touchdowns.

With three regular-season games to go, including Sunday against New England, Clay's yardage total is already the second-highest total by a Dolphins tight end, according to STATS. He could surpass Randy McMichael, who had 791 yards on 73 catches in 2004.

Unreliable blocking limited the 255-pound Clay's playing time in his first two seasons, but with experience he has become a more physical player.
