Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki revealed that the team’s leaders called a team meeting after the Dolphins’ Week 4 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

The loss pushed Miami to 1-3 on the season, and it was the team’s third-straight loss after winning its season opener against the New England Patriots.

“In the wake of Sunday’s loss to Indianapolis, tight end Mike Gesicki said: ‘The leaders on the team got the guys together,’” the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson wrote. “What was the message from that meeting? To have a ‘sense of urgency, trust, belief,’ Gesicki said. ‘We have a lot of talent. We just have to go out and use it.’”

The Dolphins have taken a step back with Tua Tagovailoa out of the lineup.

The Miami offense has averaged just 15 points per game in the past three games, and it has a tough matchup with the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5.

The Dolphins went 10-6 last season and nearly made the playoffs. However, to this point, this team has failed to build on last season’s success.

Gesicki and the Dolphins’ team leaders are trying to find ways to right the ship, but they are staring down a 1-4 start if they can’t upset Tampa Bay on Sunday.
