Report: Mike Gesicki Signs One-Year Deal With New England Patriots

Former Penn State star tight end Mike Gesicki reportedly agreed to terms with the New England Patriots early Friday morning. The one-year deal is reportedly worth up to $9 million.

The deal comes after the Patriots traded tight end Jonnu Smith to the Atlanta Falcons for a 2023 seventh-round draft pick. Gesicki would now join Hunter Henry in the tight end room in New England.

The 27-year-old was selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins and posted 18 career touchdowns over five seasons.

In 2021, Gesicki had a career year where he hauled in 73 catches for 780 yards. The hiring of a new head coach in Miami saw Gesicki’s role in the offense drastically decrease in the final season of his contract.

Gesicki will be reunited with Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien, who was responsible for his recruitment to Penn State.

In his Penn State career, Gesicki caught 15 touchdowns and was a major part of the Nittany Lions team that appeared in the 2017 Rose Bowl Game.
