NFL Rumors: Miami Dolphins Looking to Move Tight End

The Miami Dolphins might be having second thoughts about franchise tagging tight end Mike Gesicki. According to Pro Football Focus's Doug Kyed, the team has brought up Gesicki in trade discussions with other teams:
Apparently, there are concerns that Gesicki may not be a good fit for new head coach Mike McDaniel's offense, which will expect the tight end to play more inline and contribute as a blocker. Signed to a fully guaranteed $10.931 million dollar tender for the 2022 season, Gesicki may prove hard to move given the limited cap space around the league at this time of year.

Still only 26 years old, Gesicki has proven a valuable receiver in the league, steadily improving his reception and yard totals every year since being drafted 42nd overall in 2018. Coming off a career-high 780 yards, he could prove an asset to a team looking for more production out of the tight end position, but given the trade compensation the Dolphins will demand and the cap space inheriting his deal will require, it's likely he's stuck in Miami for the season.
