The Dolphins made a change in their reserve ranks at tight end on Monday, signing rookie Tim Semisch and releasing Ryan Taylor, the club said.

The 6-foot-8, 267-pound Semisch played collegiately at Northern Illinois (2011-2014), catching seven passes for 91 yards and a TD in 2013. He began his career at Nebraska-Omaha.

A 2011 seventh-round pick of Green Bay, Taylor had stints with the Packers, Ravens and Browns last season, appearing in 13 regular season games. He signed with the Dolphins in February. A North Carolina product, Taylor has caught 8-45-1 in his NFL career.

The Dolphins have 89 players on the roster, one short of the limit.

  1. As a close friend of the organization I would like to applaud signing this “hands and blocking” guy.

    Should be post-Clay fixture, or at least that is what my front office friends down in Miami are telling me.

  2. Can’t imagine he makes the Team unless he proves spectacular this Summer. Jordan and Sims are locks and he has to unseat Arthur Lynch who never got to play last year after being Drafted and injured. The Fins will only carry 3 TEs. All 3 are 6’6″ or bigger and can catch and block with Sims being a premier blocker. The role of receiver/ mismatch will now go to Ajayi and Jordan Cameron is much bigger and faster than Clay for those play types. He is a solid Red Zone target, but is somewhat fragile. I hope this guy or Lynch can step it up for insurance.

    Don’t forget Damien Williams. He showed excellent hands last year, and made some big plays in the passing game.
