The Bills have signed Dray.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dray caught just six passes for 61 yards in 16 games for the Browns in 2015, but he should be a good fit for the Bills as a blocking tight end in coordinator Greg Roman's run-oriented offense.

Dray had his contract with the Browns terminated on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dray will head into free agency after two seasons with the Browns in which he played in all 32 games. He recorded six receptions for 61 yards last season.

Dray, who was not targeted in the Week 17 loss to Pittsburgh, finished the season with a total of six catches for 61 yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dray saw 17 or more offensive snaps in every game this season for Cleveland, but was used primarily as a blocking tight end and on special teams. He provides substantial real-life value for an organization, but won't be a factor in fantasy any time soon.

Dray had two receptions on two targets for 10 receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dray has been a reserve at tight end thus far, tallying just four receptions on six targets through seven games. With 30 total receiving yards on the season, it is safe to say that Dray doesn't hold much fantasy value at his point.

Dray was not targeted in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dray and fellow backup tight end Rob Housler were both not utilized in the passing game, despite the Browns needing to lean heavily on the passing attack while behind in the second half. Dray did see a lot more time on the field than Housler, but was largely an afterthought while Gary Barnidge (10 targets) dominated the attention given to the position. Dray appears to be firmly entrenched in the No. 2 spot at the position, and on a mediocre offense, that isn't likely to result in much fantasy production.

Dray caught just one pass on three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fellow tight end Gary Barnidge saw two more targets than Dray, who appeared to see more work as a run blocker than a pass catcher. The pecking order for targets essentially followed the same order as the depth chart, with the only other active tight end, Rob Housler, failing to see a single target. There's not a ton of value to find in this position group, but owners in a pinch would be better-suited looking toward Barnidge.

Dray, who did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, finished the season with 17 catches (28 targets) for 242 yards and a touchdown.

Dray found himself with an expanded role this season, as starter Jordan Cameron missed six games, but he was unable to turn the extra snaps into steady fantasy production. He outperformed his counterpart, Gary Barnidge, but this was largely because Barnidge missed three straight games towards the end of the season with a ribs injury. Dray could see a similar opportunity in 2015 if the Browns lose Cameron to free agency, but considering that the 27-year-old failed to record more than three receptions in a single contest this year, he can likely be safely avoided in most fantasy formats.

Dray caught three passes on four targets for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

After fellow tight end Gary Barnidge suffered a ribs injury on the Browns' opening drive, Dray was left as the only viable pass-catching option at the tight end position. He may end up a sleeper play in deep leagues in Week 14 if Barnidge and Jordan Cameron (concussion) remain out, but with the latter said to be nearing a return, Dray may be best left on the waiver wire. The 27-year-old hasn't seen more than four targets in a single game this season.

Dray hauled in both of his two targets for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Dray received the starting nod at tight end in the absence of Jordan Cameron (concussion), and ended up finishing third on the team in receiving yards. His counterpart, Gary Barnidge, actually saw three more targets, but was only able to turn that into one reception for 11 yards. Even with Cameron's availability for the rest of the season uncertain, neither tight end has truly been able to stand out from a fantasy perspective.

Dray will start at tight end in place of Jordan Cameron (concussion) Sunday against the Texans, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Dray will get the starting nod for Cleveland, though this doesn't necessarily bode well for his potential fantasy impact. Over the past three weeks, Dray has been targeted just five times and has hauled in only three receptions. Gary Barnidge -- who caught two passes for 46 yards in Week 10 -- appears to be the frontrunner for the tight end targets.
