Dolphins sign TE Tim Semisch


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.
