Draft Scout Evan Rodriguez News
06/11/13 - TE Evan Rodriguez was claimed by the Miami Dolphins off waivers from the Chicago Bears.
The Dolphins waived running back Rupert Bryan to create a roster spot.
Rodriguez was a fourth-round pick in 2012 who caught four passes for 21 yards as a rookie while playing fullback and tight end. However, he had two alcohol-related arrests this offseason and the Bears decided to part ways with him.
06/10/13 - FB Evan Rodriguez was waived by the Chicago Bears, who signed veteran Tony Fiammetta to replace the 2012 fourth-round pick. Rodriguez, arrested twice since March, was an H-back after converting from tight end at Temple.
05/31/13 - RB Evan Rodriguez was ticketed Friday morning for driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage, CBS Chicago reported.
Rodriguez was pulled over on I-90 at Hubbard at about 3:30 a.m., according to an Illinois State Police report.
"We are aware of the reports regarding Evan Rodriguez," the team said in a statement. "We are currently gathering information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the situation."
Rodriguez was arrested in March for resisting a police officer in Miami. The charges were later dropped.
03/21/13 - FB/TE Evan Rodriguez was arrested in Miami on Thursday night and charged with resisting an officer without violence and disorderly intoxication, according to CBS in Miami.
Rodriguez, who has been training with some Bears teammates in South Florida this offseason including Brandon Marshall, was reportedly arrested at 5:30 a.m. in Miami Beach.
"We are aware of the reports regarding Evan Rodriguez," the Bears said in a statement. "We are currently gathering information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the situation."
A two-time first-team All-MAC player from Temple, Rodriguez was a fourth-round pick in 2012. He started five of the 12 games he appeared in as a rookie.
New head coach Marc Trestman said at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix this week he was "excited" to see what Rodriguez can do in his offense.
"I certainly see him as a fullback because I've seen enough of that," Trestman said. "After we get through the OTA's, moving him around, getting him on or near the line of scrimmage, he has a lot of upside. He can run well.
"I'm excited to see more of him. I know he's down working with Brandon (Marshall) in Florida. I'm excited to see more and see how far we can go with his flexibility. But he certainly can play the fullback position."
