The team on Friday waived its former third-round pick after just two disappointing seasons in South Beach.
The Miami Herald reported this month that Egnew was "largely invisible since returning from a concussion" at camp. Losing fullback snaps this week to Dion Sims sealed his fate, according to the newspaper's Adam Beasley.
Egnew started just five games over two campaigns after making his biggest splash as the unforgettably clueless rookie on HBO's Hard Knocks two summers ago.
The stink of former general manager Jeff Ireland's many draft failures still fills the air in Miami. Egnew's release, though, is a crystal-clear indication that inherited players refusing to produce won't be around for long.
