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.
But on the final day of training camp today, when asked which players have really stood out to him, Coach Joe Philbin went to Egnew first.
“Mike Egnew really improved an awful lot,” Philbin said. “He’s a guy we’re excited about.”
