The Dolphins have shown plenty of pre-draft interest in the top tight ends, but they filled in the blanks with a veteran Monday.

The Dolphins announced they signed tight end Gavin Escobar.

The former second-round pick of the Cowboys has struggled to find a permanent home.

He was released by the Browns last week, and spent last year trying out for teams after failing to make the Chiefs out of training camp. He did have a two-game stint with the Ravens.

He has 30 receptions for 333 yards and eight touchdowns in five NFL seasons.

  1. So they now have signed 2 players that aren’t good enough for the 0-16 Browns. They need to clean house on all the upper management and head coach. This is has been one of the worst free agency periods for this team in recent memory.

  2. Relax! He was signed as Insurance and Camp Fodder. They literally have NO ONE at the TE position (Duarte, Grey and Derby are not Starters). They need to have someone in case they don’t get a planned 2nd-3rd Rounder choice. I doubt he even makes the team. Derby and Grey are likely unless Fasano decides to not Retire. He is getting a 1 year League Minimum. Who cares? I hope they pursue CJ Anderson which makes more sense. Gore stays for a year and still draft a young guy in mid rounds. That would be a solid 4 backfield.

  3. If the Browns don’t want you, you just know your career is coming to an end soon. This could be your last stop Gavin. Afterwards, take your NFL money, go finish college if you didn’t. Put the rest in a hedgefund and/or find a way to live off the interest. Today’s NFL, there’s no such thing as “just a receiving TE” . Gotta do it all bud. Witten repioneered the TE position.

  4. An absolutely asinine signing, and under absolutely no circumstances whatsoever will Escobar be on Miami’s opening day roster.

    I am surprised “The Truth” has not blamed Dak yet for Escobar being a terrible 2nd round pick for the Cowboys.
