The Miami Dolphins continued their bottom of the roster churn on Tuesday, adding tight end Evan Wilson.  The rookie joins the Dolphins after originally signing as an undrafted free agent earlier this year with the Dallas Cowboys.  He played four seasons at Illinois, where he caught 27 passes for 300 yards, with eight career touchdowns.

To make the roster space for Wilson, the Dolphins released wide receiver Raymond Webber.

Wilson joins a Dolphins tight end group headlined by Charles Clay.  Behind Clay, the depth chart includes Dion Sims, Michael Egnew, Arthur Lynch, Harold Hoskins, and Kyle Miller.  Head coach Joe Philbin has said the team could keep as many as five tight ends on the 53-man roster, though four is more likely.

The first round of roster cuts, moving from the 90-man limit down to a 75-man roster, happen on August 26.  The final 53-man roster will be determined on August 30.
