May as well get Mike Gesicki out of the way now. There is no drama when it comes to whether he would make this list or not. Gesicki is in the final year of his Miami Dolphins rookie contract and as far as we know, there has not been any indications from the team that he is someone they want long term.
When you head to a website that has contract details for every player on a team, you have to scroll down the list quite a bit before you find Gesicki. Gesicki is counting $2.1 million in cap space this year. That is a good number for the final year of a 2nd round picks first contract.
Gesicki has played exceptionally well and has developed at one of the hardest positions in the NFL to learn. Recently Dallas Goedert received a four year extension that will pay him $59 million with around $39 guaranteed. Gesicki will come in slightly higher than that but the question is will Miami be the team he signs his next deal with.
Gesicki’s contract, again, is really good right now. Consider this. His $2 million this year is behind Cethan Carter who is making $2.7 million, behind Durham Smythe at $2.3 million and even Adam Shaheen who is making $2.2. million.
