Back nagging TE Gavin Escobar


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Gavin Escobar picked as most improved Cowboy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Tight end Gavin Escobar will be the most improved player on the Cowboys, according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer. Escobar might not improve his blocking much, but should play a lot more in 2014.

"I think the Cowboys will use him and play to his strengths more," Archer said. "He’ll attack the seams and be a red-zone threat on occasion."

The 6-6, 249-pounder caught nine passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. Jason Witten will continue to dominate targets among Cowboys tight ends.


Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”


Jason Witten not getting replaced by Gavin Escobar yet


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn't expect tight end Jason Witten to lose any playing time to second-year Gavin Escobar in 2014, reports ESPN.

"Witt's a great football player and has been for a long time, a Pro Bowler again last year," Garrett said. "In my opinion, our opinion, the best tight end in football and has been for decades. Witt's certainly going to be a big part of what we do with our offensive football team. But that doesn't mean Gavin can't be more involved."

Witten had 73 catches for 851 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. Escobar had just nine catches for 134 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.

Cowboys hopeful for Gavin Escobar


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/28/2013) Cowboys rookie tight end Gavin Escobar is expected to contribute right away in 2013, but his role coming into training camp isn't known, reports ESPN.

The report says the Cowboys picked him with the anticipation that Escobar's hands, height (6-foot-5) and ball skills would allow him to help right away as a receiving threat, especially in the red zone. But he needs a lot of work before he can be a reliable blocker.

And Escobar isn't just going to be given the No. 2 tight end role behind Jason Witten. He'll have to beat out James Hanna, and that's far from a guarantee. 


Cowboys sign Gavin Escobar


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

James Hanna still ahead of Gavin Escobar


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2013) Dallas Cowboys rookie tight end Gavin Escobar was taken in the second round of the NFL Draft with the idea that he would be the No. 2 tight end behind Jason Witten. But heading into training camp, it appears like Escobar is No. 3 on the depth chart.

According to ESPN, James Hanna remained the No. 2 tight end through offseason workouts. The report says Escobar "raised his level of play as camp went on," but Hanna has made it difficult for Escobar to take his job.


Witten to help Escobar


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/7/2013) The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said he’ll give rookie tight end Gavin Escobar all the help he needs. He said he's not going to pull the offended veteran trick and hold anything back from him. “There’s no ego there for me,” he said. “It’s all about winning. That’s part of being a leader and a captain — is to help other guys play at a high level. There’s no hard feelings from that standpoint.”

Cowboys draft Escobar


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/26/2013) The Dallas Morning News reports that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones mentioned the words “offensive oriented” when discussing this year’s draft Thursday night. The Cowboys followed that trend in the second round, selecting San Diego State tight end Gavin Escobar. He is regarded as a good receiving target but an inconsistent blocker. During a Friday conference call, Escobar noted that he needs to improve in the running game if he’s going to be a complete tight end. The 6-5, 254-pounder started 23 games during his 39-game career with San Diego State. He caught 122 passes for 1,646 yards and 17 touchdowns. Last season as a junior, Escobar caught 42 passes for 543 yards and six touchdowns.
