Dolphins sign UDFA tight end Jared Bronson

The first report of an undrafted rookie signing by Miami has come out, and the player is Central Washington tight end Jared Bronson.

The 6-4, 250-pound Bronson finished his collegiate career with 63 catches for 979 yards and eight touchdowns in 22 games. He was ranked the 14th tight end prospect in the draft by Draft Countdown, who projected him as a late-round pick or undrafted free agent.

Bronson becomes the fifth tight end on Miami's roster and the second rookie added today, joining fifth-round pick John Nalbone from Monmouth. Bronson faces an uphill battle to make the team as a reserve tight end, but will be a candidate for the practice squad.

Stay tuned, as I'll have a lot more coverage of the Dolphins' draft and other any undrafted free agents they sign in the coming days.
