The Facts: The Miami Dolphins are placing the franchise tag on Gesicki, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday. The team later confirmed the move.
Diehards Line: Should Miami and Gesicki work out an extension, it would have to be done by the July 15 deadline. If Gesicki plays the upcoming season on the tag, he'll make $10.9 million, which is likely considerably less than he would've commanded on the open market. Gesicki is the first Dolphins player to be tagged since wide receiver Jarvis Landry in 2018.
