The Miami Dolphins season is over and it’s time to enter offseason mode. The team will have plenty of decisions to make in the coming months and one of those decisions will be about tight end, Mike Gesicki. He has been with the team since they drafted him back in 2018 in the second round and has been a team player. Gesicki’s role drastically decreased this past season due to his blocking shortcomings. Fans know Gesicki isn’t a blocker, he’s a receiving threat. But in Mike McDaniel’s offensive system, tight ends need to block. Which it won’t be surprising when Gesicki is on a new team next season.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
