As Charles Clay gets comfortable in his role as an NFL H-back – which is half fullback and half tight end – more has been put on his plate.
Dolphins rookie Charles Clay's 16.8 yards per reception leads the team.
Clay, the former Tulsa standout the Miami Dolphins selected in the sixth-round of the 2011 draft, has been getting his number called lately, and he’s taking advantage of those opportunities.
Coincidentally, he’s finally being recognized for his contributions.
“It’s exciting to get more involved,” said Clay, who caught four passes for 69 yards and scored his first touchdown as an NFL player in Sunday’s 35-8 win over the Buffalo Bills. “Playing in the NFL has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and now I haven’t just gotten here. I’m contributing and we’re finally winning.”
Clay’s performance against the Bills got him recognized as one of the NFL’s top Rookie’s of the Week. He’s been named one of five candidates for the Pespi NFL Rookie of the Week honors.
