What are your thoughts on the Miami Dolphins placing the franchise tag on Mike Gesicki? Do you think he will file a grievance and try to be paid like a wide receiver? What does this all mean for Emmanuel Ogbah? Do you think he tests free agency, or will the Dolphins make him an offer he can’t refuse before the new league year begins on March 16th?
