Former fifth-round pick Eric Saubert was released from injured reserve on Wednesday afternoon. The one-time Denver Broncos tight end played 60 snaps in the preseason before an injury derailed his season.

The Miami Dolphins currently have three tight ends on the roster but Mike McDaniel’s offense doesn’t necessarily utilize the position. No team targeted tight ends less than Miami’s 12.8 percent of the time last year, and that’s with Mike Gesicki, one of the better receivers at the position, on the franchise tag.
Undrafted rookie Julian Hill also earned a spot on the roster. He may not have a major role in 2023 — but is a strong candidate to be all alone in the end zone.
