Miami Dolphins head coach, Mike McDaniel, met with the media yesterday at the 2023 NFL combine. McDaniel answered questions about his football team and gave us some answers to some key players. McDaniel said tight end Mike Gesicki will test free agency, but didn’t close to door on him returning to the Dolphins. Gesicki will get a chance to go out and earn some money and hopefully become a focal point on someone’s offense. McDaniel also elaborated on the training quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will undergo this offseason to hopefully lessen his chances of getting hurt.

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