Michael Egnew takes the field in Pittsburgh


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins tight end Michael Egnew (neck ) is active for Week 14 against the Steelers Sunday, though that doesn't come as a shock. He was listed on the injury report as probable after getting through the week in practice.

Michael Egnew makes a catch


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dolphins get several minor contributions Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) The Dolphins received minor offensive contributions from a few role players during Sunday's home opener against the Falcons in Week 3.

Wide receiver Rishard Matthews got his first action of the year as he caught all four of his targeted passes for 42 yards. Tight end Michael Egnew made his first career catch during Miami's game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. He finished with one catch for eight yards in a 27-23 victory.

Michael Egnew start further muddling Dolphins tight end situation?

(8/29/2013) Charles Clay will take a back seat to Michael Egnew at tight end for the Dolphins Thursday night, reports the Miami Herald. Clay caught just one pass despite being targeted six times in the third preseason game.

Clay is the most experienced of the backups to Dustin Keller, who is out for the season with a knee injury. He is expected to remain first on the depth chart when the opener rolls around, but Egnew might be able to push him with a strong performance.


Trio of tight ends must rise to the occasion for Dolphins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) The loss of tight end Dustin Keller for the season to a knee injury was a blow for the Dolphins, but they don't believe it was a death blow, reports NBC Sports. The team has snagged three tight ends - Charles Clay, Michael Egnew and Dion Sims - in the last three drafts. And now it's time for one of them to step up.

"The loss of Keller is disappointing because he was making so much progress even as a blocker, and then fitting into our offense," said offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. "The other three guys have really done a nice job. Obviously, they have a lot on their shoulders now with the loss of Dustin, so they need to be able to pick up the slack there. I think the tight ends have really made a lot of improvement."

Clay is listed first on the depth chart. He boasts the most experience, having caught 34 passes in the last two years combined for 445 yards and five touchdowns. 


Dolphins' options without Dustin Keller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2013) Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller is out for the season after tearing his ACL, MCL and PCL and dislocating his knee on a low hit by D.J. Swearinger. Miami coach Joe Philbin says the team will "adjust."

"We have other guys who have caught the ball down the middle," Philbin said, via the Miami Herald. "We have some big targets. [Michael] Egnew’s a big man. [Rookie] Dion Sims is a big man. [Charles] Clay has caught the ball down the middle before. We’ll adjust."

The paper expects the Dolphins to add a veteran, possibly Travis Beckum, Daniel Graham, Todd Heap or David Thomas.

Egnew admitted the remaining tight ends will be under a lot of pressure.

"Fortunately, we’re coached well," he told the paper. "I think we can naturally fall right into it."


Dolphins have backup TE battle brewing


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2013) Dolphins tight ends Kyle Miller and Michael Egnew are potentially fighting for one roster spot, the Miami Herald reported. 

Coach notices Egnew's improvement


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2013) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin sees some improvement in second-year tight end Michael Egnew. "He feels more confident about his ability and he’s starting to understand his role in the offense better," Philblin told the Palm Beach Post. "Maybe we know a little bit more about him. We put him in a position when he can make some more of those plays. It’s been encouraging."

Egnew having good offseason


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2013) The Miami Herald reports that Dolphins tight end Michael Egnew began team drills Tuesday with the starters, ahead even of free agent signee Dustin Keller. Coach Joe Philbin said Egnew earned the reps after a strong offseason.

Egnew expects to play


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/20/2013) The Miami Herald reports that Dolphins tight end Michael Egnew has been training in mixed martial arts three days a week. “Doing that, you learn how to compete," Egnew said. “I expect to play this year. I’ve gotten stronger. I’m absolutely ready.”

Philbin not high on Egnew


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/19/2013) The Miami Herald reports that Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday at the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix that second-year tight end Michael Egnew has a long way to go. “We just didn’t quite see it on the practice field enough to feel like he was ready to make a meaningful contribution or give him a big chunk of the game plan," Philbin said. "We didn’t see enough from him in special teams where we could validate, ‘OK, Even if he doesn’t have a big role here maybe he can have a big role there.’ So we just didn’t see enough on the tape to warrant an active spot most of the season.” The big problem, Philbin said, was “his play speed. If I had to say one thing, it would be his play speed. Get that up! Get off the ball quicker, get a better release off the line of scrimmage, get down field quicker. Just speed it up.”

Egnew has long way to go


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/22/2013) The Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are hoping to upgrade at tight end this offseason, but they have to find out if Michael Egnew can be part of the solution. General manager Jeff Ireland recently expressed optimism in Egnew, who was a bust as a rookie in 2012. Said Ireland: “I see a 6-4, 260-pound guy who runs a 4.65. I see a guy having vertical speed down the middle of the field. I see a big guy that moves well. I see a developing player with his hand in the dirt. I see a competitive guy. I can name several players at that position that did very little in their first year and became big time playmakers. That’s a position that develops differently. Other than quarterback, that position is the most mentally and physically demanding.” But here’s one of the problems with Egnew, per the report: According to a teammate, he lined up on the wrong side during pregame work before the season-finale and had troubling remembering the plays.

Report: TE Egnew won't last


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/9/2013) The Miami Herald speculates that Dolphins tight end Michael Egnew won't be a part of the team much longer. Writer Armando Salguero and WQAM radio personality Joe Rose have both heard that Egnew is on the outs after being inactive for nearly his entire rookie season. "He should have been cut this year," a player said of Egnew to the Herald. The story adds that Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman once told Egnew during a meeting he would cut him if he could.
