Cowboys claimed TE John Nalbone off waivers from the Seahawks.

Nalbone has yet to record an NFL catch since being drafted by the Dolphins in the fifth round back in 2009. He'll battle James Hanna and Andrew Szczerba for the final tight end spot in Dallas.

Seahawks released TE John Nalbone.

Drafted by Miami in the fifth round back in 2009, Nalbone had little chance of cracking the 53-man roster, especially after the acquisition of Kellen Winslow. In a corresponding move, T Edawn Coughman was signed.

Free agent TE John Nalbone visited with the Redskins.

The Redskins could simply be updating their free agent list, or they could be worried about Chris Cooley's knee. Cooley is considered questionable for Sunday's opener against the Giants.

Bengals claimed TE John Nalbone off waivers from the Eagles.

Nalbone joins his third team after originally being drafted by Miami in the 2009 fifth round. He's a better blocker than current backup TE Chase Coffman.

Eagles released TE John Nalbone.

LB Terence Thomas was also cut loose. Nalbone was active for two games for the Dolphins last season, but has zero career catches to his name. That's unlikely to change in 2011.

Dolphins waived TE John Nalbone.

It's a bit of a surprise considering Nalbone was active for both games so far, and the Fins don't have another tight end on the roster behind Anthony Fasano. Practice squadders Dedrick Epps and Jeron Mastrud are candidates for promotion.

Following Saturday's surprising release of David Martin, John Nalbone is locked in as the Dolphins' No. 2 tight end.

Nalbone, a fifth-round pick last season, spent most of his rookie year on the practice squad. Now he's going to be on the field plenty as the Dolphins run a significant amount of two-tight end sets. Martin's release prompted speculation that the Dolphins were trying to trade for Greg Olsen, but it appears they are simply higher on Nalbone than most.

Dolphins signed TE John Nalbone to a two-year futures contract.

Nalbone spent most of the season on the practice squad. With Anthony Fasano's status with the team uncertain, Nalbone could have an impact on the active roster in 2010. The Dolphins also signed S Nate Ness, WR Julius Pruitt, WR Taurus Johnson, OG Ray Feinga and RB Tristan Davis to two-year futures contracts.

Dolphins waived TE John Nalbone.

Nalbone was the Dolphins' fifth-round pick this season. He was unable to make in impact even though Miami lost David Martin (knee) for the season. Nalbone is a practice squad candidate.
Sat, Oct 31, 2009 03:24:00 PM

Dolphins signed fifth-round TE John Nalbone to a four-year contract. The deal includes a signing bonus of roughly $173,000.

Nalbone (6'4/255) was a four-year starter at Monmouth, where he caught 42 passes for 491 yards and five touchdowns as a senior. He's a project, but ran in the 4.6s at Pro Day and will compete for third-TE duties in training camp.
