Egnew's receiving total fell to 50 last year, but the Missouri just told reporters in a conference call he actually enjoyed last year more because the offense was more balanced and he got to do some blocking.
Egnew, whose highlights show a guy very adept at catching high passes, joins a Dolphins tight end group that includes veteran Anthony Fasano and second-year player Charles Clay.
In a way, this seems like overkill for a team that really doesn't have a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver on the roster and isn't likely to have one now that the first three rounds of the draft have passed without Miami taking a wideout.
Maybe this should be an indication that we'll see an awful of two-tight-end sets for the Dolphins in 2012.
There are big hopes for Clay in his second season after he showed impressive downfield pass-catching ability as a rookie.
He and Egnew could create matchups for opponents.
