On Friday’s edition of Zolak & Bertrand, Scott Zolak said “Mike Gesicki is the first domino to fall” as the Patriots continue their offseason.

  • First domino to fall...

    Scott Zolak: I loved him when he (Mike Gesicki) was at Penn State. I watched him since his college days. It’s one of the guys I kind of wanted to go after post-Gronk. Wasn’t the case, Miami got him they actually franchise taged them. He’s not a big blocker. He’s lanky. This is a red zone threat to combo off of Hunter Henry and what I think the Patriots are doing and I was told today this is the first domino to fall, that there’s more to come. So, I think this is where they’re starting to make their move. And please keep it going because I’m getting more and more excited every day here. You know, I think what they’re doing on offense is they’re saying, look at what we have, Billy (O’Brien) come in, make every position better. Let’s try and upgrade things. So they’ve upgraded the tight end position. They cut bait with Jonnu Smith. Juju Smith-Schuster is an upgrade over Jakobi Myers. Your tight ends have gotten better. (James) Robinson is a better back than Damien Harris. So your backup running back got better. I’m just going off remembering playing against the guy, and sort of putting the dots together and, you know, he was with Doug Marrone in Jacksonville and and Billy knows Doug, and this is really Billy O’Brien’s stamp on the offense. This isn’t Bill (Belichick).
