Miami Dolphins Sign Michael Egnew To Rookie Contract

Another Missouri tight end is now officially a member of the NFL after the Miami Dolphins announced on Wednesday that the team had reached an agreement with Michael Egnew, the team's third round choice in the 2012 NFL Draft. Egnew was a go-to player for the Missouri offense last year under James Franklin and even before that for Blaine Gabbert. Now he will try to become the same outlet for Ryan Tannehill or whoever ends up winning the starter job for Miami's offense under new head coach Joe Philbin.

"Egnew, who caught 147 passes for 1,332 yards and scored eight touchdowns during his career at Missouri, will compete with Anthony Fasano and Charles Clay for playing time in an offense that will use multiple tight end sets regularly," writes Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel.

Egnew is just the latest of several Mizzou tight ends who have made it to the pro level. Chase Coffman and Martin Rucker also were drafted in recent years from Gary Pinkel's offense.
