    I think this year we see a reasonable amount of 12 and 21 personnel.

    Gesicki is not a tight end..just because someone is his size, doesn’t mean he should be considered such, he’s the absolute worst blocker I’ve seen come into the league at that position..so in what sense should I consider him to anything but a large wide receiver..

    He cannot be put in situations on the LOS that a real tight end could..you simply cannot jeopardize him, the play or his teammates...so I don’t understand the need to categorize this young man as such..

    Looks to like more accountability in that position. Remembering how NE uses the position, flexibility and consistency will determine who plays. It's been like our Guard position, a waste of money for negative production.

    He’s a 2nd round pick that won’t be starting this year, they went out and got someone they could rely on in Allen..

    Tells me what he thinks at this point.

    Prior to camp though. I still have hope Gesicki can develop into something better than what he has been.

    I actually don’t see Gesicki getting many reps in 12 personnel...I don’t see him getting reps in 11 personnel..

    I see him coming across the formation in motion to get free releases, split him in the slot or out wide against zone looks..

    I have a good feeling Flores is pretty good at evaluating talent, so let’s use the knight correctly.

    Yes absolutely I get that, I have hope as well, but where I have 0 hope is thinking his coordination while blocking is gonna become efficient.

    I don’t know why some take that personally or get defensive about it, he’s a dolphin, he’s ours, let’s realize what he can do and can’t do, and utilize properly..

    Roster still shows him at TE and we've read nothing about him lining up as receiver.

    Good read. I'm expecting Gesicki to prove his detractors wrong this year. He's going to be a very good TE.

    If blocking is his deficiency.... Then lets put him in position to do what he does well. Position to me is irrelevant. Just find a way to get this cat to produce.
