Earlier this week, the Texans agreed to acquire tight end Adam Shaheen from the Dolphins.

Now that deal is off.

Multiple reports indicate Shaheen failed his physical due to a preexisting knee condition. That means Shaheen will revert back to Miami’s roster.

Though he failed the physical, Shaheen has not missed any time during Dolphins training camp.

Shaheen and a 2023 seventh-round pick were slated to go to Miami in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round pick. Houston was seeking depth at the position with Antony Auclair sidelined with a knee injury. The Dolphins had him listed as their fifth TE behind Mike GesickiDurham SmytheHunter Long, and Cethan Carter.

Shaheen has appeared in 55 games with 25 starts for the Bears and Dolphins. He’s caught 50 passes for 509 yards with seven touchdowns in his career. He played 12 games with seven starts last year, recording 12 catches for 110 yards.

  1. Ouch! Back on the team and having to hear the coach explain how much value he brings to the organization.

  2. Ryan Pace thought he was the smartest guy in the room when he took Shaheen in the 2nd round out of a D3 school. He has badly underperformed his draft position but that’s not the kid’s fault.

  3. Mr Florio has mentioned in the past the rush by certain media types to be the first to announce a trade. This might be an example where it should have waited until after the medical. I feel sorry for the player. Must have had his hopes up about a new beginning. Get well soon.
