Fasano and the Dolphins have reached an agreement, ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports. Fasano previously spent five seasons (2008-12) in Miami, where he cemented his reputation as one of the league's better in-line blocking tight ends. He had a career-low eight receptions last season in Tennessee, despite playing in all 16 games for the sixth time in his 11-year career. With recently-acquired Julius Thomas serving as the receiving threat, Fasano's role in Miami will he heavily tilted toward the blocking side.
Fasano caught his lone target for 12 yards Saturday in Jacksonville. Fasano has eight catches this season, with no two coming in the same contest. The 32-year-old veteran is six receptions shy of his previous career low with just one game to play.
Fasano caught one of two targets for 17 yards Sunday against the Broncos. Fasano was actually the team's third-leading receiver on an off day for quarterback Marcus Mariota. Don't expect the veteran tight end to climb higher than that in any of Tennessee's final three games, as he still hasn't recorded multiple catches in any contest this season.
Fasano failed to come down with his lone target Sunday in Chicago. Fasano remains at six catches for 54 yards on the season. The veteran tight end serves almost exclusively as a blocker while Delanie Walker hogs all the receiving glory.
Fasano caught a nine-yard touchdown on his lone target Sunday against the Packers. Fasano has exactly one catch in six different weeks this season and zero multi-catch efforts. Two of those grabs have gone for touchdowns, but don't expect him to keep finding pay dirt.
