Tuesday Miami Dolphins Notebook: Gesicki Chatter, Practice Notes, the Next Step, and More

After the Miami Dolphins made their move to get down to the 53-player roster limit, tight end Mike Gesicki remained a member of the team.

And the way GM Chris Grier explained it after practice Tuesday, it was never much in doubt.

Grier cleared the air about the Gesicki situation in the aftermath of a report suggesting his name had come up in trade discussions.

“For us, we did not make any calls on Mike,” Grier said. “We had calls from two teams that reached out to us about Mike. We never made any phone calls about him. We were always — Mike was going to be here. I think everyone made a big deal about him being on the field, but Mike is a competitive kid. He has been challenged to do some things he hadn’t been asked to do before and he stepped up. We were talking about the other day how the last couple of weeks he’s made some great strides in that area. So for us, it was never about moving him or us trying to. Teams called asking because he’s a good player. And so for us, you guys have heard me say it for years, I’ll always listen. It doesn’t mean we’ll do anything. I think it’s negligent if we don’t (answer the phone), because you never know what kind of deal someone’s going to offer you on someone.”
