Dolphins’ Chris Grier says Miami made no calls on Mike Gesicki’s availability: ‘Mike was going to be here’


The Miami Dolphins made positive Mike Gesicki was going to be on their 53-man roster, regardless of experiences the staff was fielding calls on the tight finish’s availability. Normal supervisor Chris Crier set the document straight relating to Gesicki’s availability.

The Dolphins by no means provided Gesicki to any staff. 

“For us, we didn’t make any calls on Mike,” Grier mentioned Tuesday. “We had calls from two groups that reached out to us about Mike. We by no means made any telephone calls about him. We have been at all times – Mike was going to be right here.”

Gesicki was reportedly brought up in commerce talks with different groups, however Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel mentioned the experiences have been “form of deceptive.” McDaniel did not deny the Dolphins fielded gives on Gesicki, but that they had no intention of buying and selling him. 

Having a brand new position in McDaniel’s offense could have fueled these experiences. 

“I believe everybody made an enormous deal about him being on the sector, however Mike’s a aggressive child,” Grier mentioned. “He has been challenged to do some issues he hadn’t been requested to do earlier than and he stepped up. We have been speaking concerning the different day how the final couple of weeks he is made some nice strides in that space. 

“So for us, it was by no means about shifting him or us making an attempt to. Groups referred to as asking as a result of he is a very good participant. And so for us, you guys have heard me say it for years, I am going to at all times pay attention. It doesn’t suggest we’ll do something. I believe it is negligent if we do not (reply the telephone), since you by no means know what sort of deal somebody’s going to give you on somebody.”

Gesicki completed fifth within the league in receptions (73), eighth in receiving yards (780), and fourth in yards per catch (10.68) amongst all tight ends final season. He has a precious position within the Dolphins’ offense, even when his prime trait is catching the soccer. 

The Dolphins have used Durham Smythe as a blocking tight finish to help Gesicki, but have been impressed with how effectively he is tailored to his new position. Enjoying on the franchise tag for 2022, Miami and Gesicki seem primed to have an enormous season.
