Hard Knocks star EZ Nwachukwu signs to Miami Dolphins practice squad

Football News

Every year NFL Network's 'Hard Knocks' series introduces fans across the league to players who might otherwise have escaped their attention until this point.

The 2015 incarnation of the popular show has been no different. And, whilst big name Houston Texans stars such as J.J. Watt and Vince Wilfork have had their share of great moments, one of this year's biggest on-camera stars has been wide receiver Uzoma Nwachukwu - known simply as 'EZ'

Hard Knocks hero

Unfortunately for EZ, his Hard Knocks success wasn't enough to keep him on the Texans roster for the 2015 season, and he was cut over the weekend. Those who have grown to be fans of the young wideout will though be glad to hear that the Miami Dolphins have stepped in.

As reported by the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley, Nwachukwu has linked up with the Dolphins:

E.Z. adhered himself to the wider public over the past few weeks with his constantly positive character and on-screen persona as the cameras rolled in Houston.

Whether it was making his presence felt on the practice field, visiting NASA headquarters or conquering his fear of rope swings, Nwachukwu was one of this year's highlights.

But, like another of those who have starred on Hard Knocks, cornerback Charles James, he was deemed surplus to requirements by Texans head coach Bill O'Brien when it came to trimming the roster to 53.

Making an impression

We've all seen that EZ is one of the most positive guys out there so we wouldn't bet against him making an impression on the practice squad for Miami in the upcoming months.

Plus, his talents on the football field should help him in that regard, too.

He had 2,239 yards and 19 TDs during his college career with Texas A&M and his impressive speed has been referred to on virtually every episode of 2015 Hard Knocks.
