The future of Mike Gesicki and the Miami Dolphins was one of the major offseason stories. The Dolphins finally decided to franchise tag the seasoned tight end after failing to reach an agreement on an extension.
Gesicki was the Dolphins offense’s main point the previous season. He had 73 receptions for 780 receiving yards and two scores on his final 73 targets for the season.
Mike Gesicki has, regrettably, witnessed a significant decline in his utilisation this season. This Dolphins team has had highs and lows due to injuries throughout the offence, particularly at the quarterback position.
Gesicki had just 12 total targets prior to Week 6, which led to nine grabs for 101 receiving yards and one touchdown.
Gesicki played a considerably larger part in the Dolphins offence in Week 6. He came close to matching or perhaps exceeding all of his season totals. He caught six passes on his seven targets for a total of 69 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Gesicki has struggled to get on the field in addition to producing poorly. He has yet to play in more than 65% of the snaps in a game this season, and in three different games, he has only played in fewer than 50%.
Gesicki has seen that rumours of possible trade discussions have been swirling in recent weeks. Many in the NFL believe that he could be traded by the trade deadline next month because of his underutilised role in the offence.
Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald, according to Gesickistated:
I adore being here. I’m delighted to be here.
Gesicki was asked if he would seek clarification after a report claimed that the Dolphins could consider trading for him, and his response was yes.
This season, the Dolphins have placed a lot of reliance on the wide receiver tandem of Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. The team may decide to replace Gesicki, who is more of a pass-catching tight end, if those two prove successful.
