Bills TE Charles Clay now has a contract that puts him in the upper echelon of tight ends in the league in terms of average annual salary. Is he feeling the pressure to live up to the deal as he begins the next chapter of his career with Buffalo?
Clay says for him it’s not about outside pressure or the pressure of a big contract to perform.
“I don’t feel like anyone could put as much pressure on me that I put on myself,” Clay said. “I’m going to go out and work hard every single day. What I won’t do is go out and start pressing. Trying to prove why I got the contract and things like that. Once you start doing that is when guys start to mess up.
“What I plan on doing: I’m going to go out and play as hard as I can which is what I always do. I don’t feel any added pressure. I already set high standards for myself. I’m going to work hard and do everything I can to help this team win no matter what that is. Whatever I have to do, that’s what I’m willing to do so I’ll just go from there.”
