Post Practice Notes
Michael Egnew was supposed to be the Dolphins’ future at tight end when he was drafted in the third round last year. But he didn’t catch a pass in 2012, was criticized by coaches on Hard Knocks last year and seemed like a candidate to be cut this offseason. The Dolphins have a new rookie tight end they really like in Dion Sims, along with Dustin Keller and h-back Charles Clay.

“Mike Egnew really improved an awful lot,” Philbin said. “He’s a guy we’re excited about.”


In other words, you are going to be cut.

At this point, I think he makes the team. He has looked like a completely different player out there.

I was thinking the same thing until Philbin gave him the vote of confidence. lol

If you had told me after the draft that Egnew would make the team, I'd have thought you were crazy. But I'm not so sure anymore. He just might make it after all, he has improved quite a bit from where he was his rookie year.

Where does he fit? Sounds like both Sims and Clay would are ahead of him. And does he contribute on special teams?

Clay = h-back. Lane and Rodriguez are not making the team.

I understand. Just figured Keller and Sims were locks, Clay could fill in and Miller is more well rounded.

I can only go off of what is being tweeted about the practices but it usually seems like Egnew is screwing up or on the bottom rung.

4 catches for 52 yards against the Cowboys and a much improved blocking performance against Jax.

Meanwhile, Miller has been injured.

Haven't seen much of Lane...Did he get heavy again?

He wasn't great last year but he seemed like he had potential .....

They have been using Clay in that role
