And then there was one (unsigned rookie) left ...

The Dolphins have announced the signing of tight end Michael Egnew and confirmed the signing of defensive end Olivier Vernon.

Only first-round pick Ryan Tannehill remains unsigned. The rookie quarterback and his representative were working to get a deal with the team throughout the day Wednesday and that is expected to continue Thursday.

The team's first practice is Friday and the club wants very much to have Tannehill done by then. Tannehill is one of five players selected in the first round that still have not signed.

Egnew was the second of Miami’s two third round selections (78th overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of Missouri. A four-year letterman and two-year starter with the Tigers, Egnew played in 51 career games with 26 starts, recording 147 receptions for 1,332 yards (9.1 avg.) and eight touchdowns. Born November 1, 1989, Egnew attended Plainview High School (Texas), where he lettered in football, basketball and track.
