The Buffalo Bills have restructured the contract of tight end Charles Clay, the team announced on Thursday.

While the terms were not disclosed by general manager Doug Whaley, it is expected that Clay's $10-million roster bonus will be converted to a signing bonus in order to give the cash-strapped Bills some cap space.

Whaley also said there were other players the team hopes to extend on a Buffalo radio station Thursday.

Clay signed a 5-year, $38-million contract with the Bills in 2015 after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Miami Dolphins. He caugh 51 passes for 528 yards and three touchdowns last season.
