Commanders receiver in a tight end's body: Mike Gesicki

Like Gerald Everett, Mike Gesicki is essentially a wide receiver trapped in a tight end's body. His pass-catching skills didn't win many friends with the New England Patriots last season, but the Washington Commanders could find a place for him in Kliff Kingsbury's system.

Gesicki does have a decent track record of productivity. He made 73 catches from 112 targets for the Dolphins in 2021.

At 6-foot-6, Gesicki is a size mismatch Kingsbury could split out wide to bully defensive backs. He's also useful from the slot, where he played 314 snaps last season, according to Player Profiler.

Gesicki would be an asset in tandem with Zach Ertz but would assume the latter's role full-time after a year. The only thing their potential Commanders' partnership would lack is the brawn to help with blocking.
