When the Miami Dolphins selected Michael Egnew in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, they envisioned the athletic tight end being a big part of the team's passing attack. Instead, he's been a non-factor and may have a tough time making the roster this season.
Egnew has been working with the third and fourth-team on offense, according to the Miami Herald. The Dolphins signed Dustin Keller this offseason, and he has been getting the first-team reps. Charles Clay and rookie Dion Sims have been getting the primary action behind Keller on the depth chart.
Egnew appeared in only two games as a rookie and failed to catch a single pass for the Dolphins. He's not used to playing a traditional tight end role after lining up in the slot for most of his college career.
While reports indicated he was having a strong offseason, the initial depth chart at training camp suggest otherwise.
