Joey Haynos (born August 28, 1984) is a free agent American football tight end in the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Maryland.

He has also been a member of the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans.

College career

He played college football at Maryland after playing high school football (at tight end and linebacker) and basketball at Gonzaga College High School. In two years of starting tight end play, Haynos caught over 60 catches for 690 yards. He started all games his senior year, ranking second on the team in receptions.

Professional career

Green Bay Packers

Haynos was invited to and attended the 2008 NFL Combine; however, he went unselected in the Draft. Some had predicted the "huge player...hard worker and tough competitor... lumbering tight end"[1] would be a late round selection while receiving comparisons to Ben Utecht.[2] He was signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent on May 2, 2008. Haynos was signed to the Packers' practice squad on August 31, 2008.

Miami Dolphins

Miami signed Haynos on September 24, 2008 off the Green Bay Packers’ practice squad. Behind David Martin and Anthony Fasano at tight end, Haynos had a reserve role most of the season. His first catch of his career came in week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. It was a 19-yard touchdown from a pass thrown by Chad Pennington. It was his penultimate reception of a quiet rookie season. The other was a 3-yard catch in a week 17 win against the Jets.

Haynos saw much more playing time in his second year as a NFL player. Starting eight games, he split most of the tight end production with Fasano as quarterback Chad Henne became starter in week 4. Throughout the season, he compiled 162 receiving yards on 19 catches with two touchdowns.

After making a first down catch during the third preseason game versus the Atlanta Falcons, Haynos was helped up and carried off the field onto a waiting cart. He was later diagnosed with a foot injury, and was waived/injured by the Dolphins the following Monday.[3]

Jacksonville Jaguars

On August 21, 2011, Haynos signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but was waived on September 2.

Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans signed Haynos on August 1, 2012. He was waived on August 31.

Claim to fame

In the spirit of Hispanic Heritage month, officials were calling out penalties in Spanish. Joey Haynos was the first NFL athlete to have his number called after he was penalized for a false start.[4]
