The Miami Dolphins fell back to Earth with three consecutive losses, canceling their 3-0 start.
However, they are still in good hands, especially with Tua Tagovailoa‘s impending return.
But while they try to return to their winning ways, the Dolphins are exploring the possibility of trading one of their key players.
#Dolphins franchise tagged TE Mike Gesicki could be traded ahead of the deadline.

NFL insider Dov Kleiman tweeted, “#Dolphins franchise tagged TE Mike Gesicki could be traded ahead of the deadline. Gesicki has only played 52% of the snaps this year, and sources tell ESPN that Miami is ‘willing to listen’ to offers for him although they aren’t actively shopping him.”
But while Gesicki doesn’t figure more into Miami’s plans, he has 15 receptions for 170 yards and three touchdowns.
Therefore, a number of teams may be interested in acquiring his services before the trade deadline.
However, Gesicki leaving Miami isn’t a done deal, and he might remain with the squad until the season ends.
Yet with Durham Smythe overtaking him on the depth chart, the former Penn State standout might prefer switching teams to have a fresh start.
Gesicki’s Career With Miami
The Dolphins selected Gesicki in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 41 spots after top overall selection Baker Mayfield.
He finished his rookie season with 22 receptions for 202 yards.
He improved his production the following year with 51 receptions for 570 yards.
Gesicki had 53 receptions for 703 yards in 2020.
He was also placed under the franchise tag for the 2022 NFL season after compiling 73 receptions for 780 yards and two touchdowns for the Dolphins last year.
Gesicki was also a part of the 2016 Third-Team All-Big Ten.
He will be a great addition to any team that would like to increase their tight end’s role as a constant passing target.
