Dion Sims vs. Michael Egnew: The Dolphins were hoping to get a solid pass-catching H-back when they drafted Michael Egnew in the third round. What they got was someone who ended up being a punch line throughout training camp, with his struggles chronicled on national television on “Hard Knocks.” Those struggles have continued in the first few days of Dolphins training camp.
Now, fourth-round tight end Dion Sims (pictured) could pose a threat to Egnew’s status as the backup behind Dustin Keller. Sims has already begun taking reps with the first-team offense. He’s more of a blocker than Egnew, but he does have some natural pass-catching ability and his skill set could pose a complement to Keller’s.
