The Cincinnati Bengals hosted former Miami Dolphins tight end Michael Egnew on Monday, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Caplan.

Egnew was a former third-round pick out of Missouri who spent two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, but was released on Aug. 22, 2014. The Detroit Lions claimed him off waivers but released him five days later and then Jacksonville signed him to their practice squad. Egnew has played 18 games, started five (all in 2013) and posted seven receptions for 69 yards receiving.

However, he left Cincinnati unsigned.

The team announced that they've swapped out tight ends on their practice squad Monday, signing rookie Jake Murphy out of Utah, who was previous signed as a college free agent by the Oakland Raiders. A month after being waived, Miami signed him to their practice squad, but released him last week. To make room, the team released tight end Kevin Greene, who was a first-year player who had been on Cincinnati's practice squad since August 31.
