Reports last week were that the Miami Dolphins were expected to place the franchise tag on tight end, Mike Gesicki. Those reports were correct as the team announced the move yesterday. The two sides have until July 15th to reach a long term deal or else Gesicki will be playing the 2022 season on the franchise tender. This will be Gesicki’s fifth year with the team after being drafted by the Dolphins in the second round back in 2018.
