    GM Joe Philbin says TE Michael Egnew will have to improve his "play speed"

    Dolphins coach Joe Philbin says TE Michael Egnew will have to improve his "play speed" to have any chance of getting on the field in 2013.

    "Get off the ball quicker, get a better release off the line of scrimmage, get down field quicker," Philbin said. "Just speed it up." Philbin's comments are an indictment of a player GM Jeff Ireland has continued to stand behind. The 2012 third-round pick's roster spot will be very much up in the air heading into training camp.

    he also forgot to mention he will need to actually learn to block and catch a ball

    He plays canastra with Vontae's grandma. Sometimes she lets him win, so he doesn't feel like a total loser.

    I think Egnew could still work out.

    He is lucky enough to be considered a considerably high draft pick and will get at least one more full offseason to prove his value to this team.

    FYI< he doesnt have to prove to be an immediate starter, just needs to show enough improvement that he is worth developing.
