Dolphins Head Coach Speaks On Mike Gesicki's Lack Of Involvement This Season

It's been a disappointing season for him.

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said he hasn't gotten the ball to tight end Mike Gesicki enough this season.

''He's a good player and I don't give him the ball enough. It feels as though it's a failure to some degree for myself,'' McDaniels said.

So far this season, Gesicki has hauled in 25 receptions for 274 yards and four touchdowns on 40 targets. This is a massive dropoff from last season's volume, where the tight end saw 112 targets, made 73 receptions for 780 yards and two touchdowns over 17 games.

McDaniel took blame for Gesicki's lack of involvement, but didn't say anything to suggest that we will see an uptick in volume for the tight end.

The twenty-seven-year-old is a potential unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason and, given his lack of involvement this season, we could very well see Gesicki test the free agent market. He's been one of the more productive tight ends in the league for most of his career, and there's nothing to suggest that he can't get back to that in a more involved offense.
