Michael Egnew gets first-team reps Tuesday

Michael Egnew, a nonfactor last season, began team drills with the starters, ahead even of free agent signee Dustin Keller. Philbin said Egnew earned the reps after a strong offseason.

Egnew was even briefly running ahead of Dustin Keller. Coach Joe Philbin said Egnew earned the reps "after a strong offseason." It's a good start for the 2012 third-rounder, but he still has lots of ground to make up coming off a lost rookie season. He's not a threat to Keller's No. 1 status.

So if he stays on the team and contributes he should still have been cut? Or are you saying that Sherman used that as a motivational tactic? Or maybe you are trying to convey something else?

I expect an All-Pro season from him this year, nothing less. Step aside Gronkowski!

What I'm saying is I don't see him making the team

It was shells and shorts, non-full contact, 7 on 7....In May.

Yeah. I'm soooo excited about this.

If he can be a Red Zone/jump ball target then I'm happy. However, I wouldn't get my hopes up that he will emerge as a starting TE after this season. Anything is possible but right now I'm skeptical about him being a contributor.

Well at least it looks like he's got his head on straight and he's taking this opportunity very seriously. It's a new year and it looks like he's starting out the right way as opposed to the disaster that was last preseason. There aren't a lot of guys 6' 5" with his kind of athleticism.

I don't think that is the expectations at all, and I think we all know that he isn't better than Dustin Keller. I think a lot of us will be surprised if he does make the roster, but the Dolphins are giving him every opportunity to make it. If he gets cut it is all on him.

OmarKelly Of all Miami's rookies Dion Sims has the easiest road to playing time. And he's still a year or two behind Clay, Egnew & Miller for No2 role

I'd say that tight end is easily the position to watch this offseason. Outside of Keller it is a wide open battle, and probably either Clay or Egnew will be the odd man out.

Well it's one poster's expectation .... unless it was sarcasm.

He has the 'tools' to be a solid TE in this league. That being said, if he can't get his head around the game, he will be looking for a job at UPS by September.

It is just a tad early to be speculating on Egnew. Give the kid a chance, it is his second season, his head probably won't be on a swivel like it was last season and now we can see if he performs or not.

Maybe Bernee Parmalee knows some people to get him hired there .... or was that FedEx?
