The Miami Dolphins have placed tight end, Adam Shaheen, on injured reserve - ending his 6th season in the National Football League before it began. The move comes just days after Shaheen failed his physical with the Houston Texans after the Dolphins attempted to trade him and a 7th round pick for a 6th round pick from Houston.

Miami’s tight end room is a crowded one with Mike Gesicki the team’s starter, according to their first depth chart release, Durham Smythe his backup and primary blocking tight end, second year player, Hunter Long, looking to make more of an impact under new coach Mike McDaniel, and Cethan Carter, a strong contributor on special teams, all fighting for snaps in 2022.
In addition to moving Adam Shaheen to IR, Miami also made a flurry of moves to trim their roster from 90 players down to 85 to ensure compliance on the league’s first cut-down day.
