Dolphins Retain Tight End On A 2-Year Extension

The Miami Dolphins are reportedly signing tight end Durham Smythe to a two-year, $7.750 million extension, with $5.5 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. 

The deal also has a max value of $8.75 million with a raise in 2023, Pelissero adds. 

Smythe was originally drafted by the Dolphins as a fourth-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft and re-signed with his Miami club on March 22, 2022 on a two-year contract, which is to be extended for another two seasons due to his consistent play. 

Last season Smythe started 15/16 games recording 15 receptions for 129 yards, and one touchdown. Although his yards receiving were the lowest since the 2019 season (65), Smythe still proved to be a viable option for Miami's offensive core appearing in 52.7 percent of their snaps in 2022, which was the most out of any tight end in the NFL last year.
