While several NFL teams began making their prescribed cuts Friday, the Dolphins’ roster remained unchanged.

And so, the same four tight ends who were on the team to start the day remained Dolphins when it ended: Charles Clay as the starter, along with reserves Dion Sims, Michael Egnew and Kyle Miller.

And, as a source told the Miami Herald on Friday, the group will probably look pretty much the same to start the season, too.

The Dolphins will spend the weekend scanning the waiver wire and pursuing trade options for upgrades, but the source said the team is more comfortable with the tight end position than credited.

We really have no choice right now. What are we going to do? Pick up a TE that has been cut and expect him to learn the playbook and contribute? Hell no...that would be like someone else picking up Clay or Egnew...lol The TEs might surprise us, Egnew improved and Sims is stepping it up a little.

From a fans point of view and seat, I go with the rookie Sims as your tight end. He is an investment from the draft that IMO is better than Clay and has more upside especially because he appears to block well and is a big Antonio Gates "type" target a nice athletic resource for Tannehill.

I keep reading that Clay may end up being the starter and if the guy can wake up one day and start catching the ball like he did at Tulsa, he would be a Dustin Keller like guy, but the problem is he has been so inconsistent and for me hasn't shown much.

Hope they go with Sims....

Been saying this the entire time.

The guys available are not worth a roster a spot. They have to go to war with what they go.
