The New England Patriots have agreed to a one-year deal with free agent tight end Mike Gesicki that is worth up to $9 million, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Field Yates. Gesicki will pair with veteran Hunter Henry to give the Patriots a tight end duo the team hoped it was getting when it signed Henry and Jonnu Smith to big-money deals in free agency in 2021. (ESPN)
FFToday's Take:New England traded Jonnu Smith to the Falcons a few days ago for a 7th round pick and replace him with Gesicki (32-362-5) who was barely used in Miami last season. He's a decent redzone option, if New England chooses to use him in that capacity, but is going to struggle being a reliable TE1 playing alongside Hunter Henry.
