Best tight end in Miami Dolphins history: Randy McMichael
Tight end may be one of the weakest positions in Dolphins’ franchise history, but Randy McMichael was no slouch and makes this list fairly easily as the best one of the bunch.
McMichael is the franchise leader at his position in catches and yards, though oddly tied for fourth in the touchdown category. He was an iron man during his time with the Dolphins, playing and starting in all 16 games in each of the first five seasons of his career. McMichael is 16th on the franchise list for most receiving yards and the second-most of any non-wide receiver behind running back Tony Nathan.
His numbers may not last for long. Mike Gesicki is nipping at the heels of McMichael’s statistical marks, and he could be considered the new best tight end in Dolphins’ history as early as 2023. Gesicki is on a one-year contract and is currently 842 yards away from breaking the franchise mark. He may be able to do it this upcoming season, and will certainly take the title if Miami re-signs him to a long-term deal.
