Cowboys Tight End Gavin Escobar Goes Airborne to Prove his Worth

When the Dallas Cowboys took Gavin Escobar with a second round pick the team had high hopes for the San Diego State product--and have been sorely disappointed (117 yards, 1 TD through Week 16). Should the Cowboys win Sunday night against the Eagles and make it back to the post season the effort on this play might be enough to make fans glad to have him around.From Bleacher Report...

Blocking could keep Escobar off the field

Gavin Escobar will probably never be a good blocker. The question is whether he can be a good enough blocker to get on the field. Escobar remains behind James Hanna on the Cowboys’ tight end depth chart and his blocking deficiencies have been exposed in the first two preseason games. Escobar has the worst run-blocking grade of any player this preseason according to ProFootballFocus...

Cowboys Return to Sloppy 2012 form

The Cowboys had a short week to prepare for the Raider’s game, but there was no excuse for the sloppy play across the board. The first team offense looked horrendous, and Romo was back to his same bad habits of holding the ball and taking sacks. What’s the deal with the Special Teams unit, its the same story every year, and tonight’s game just highlighted how bad they still...

Fantasy Football Rookie Report: Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar

The two tight end set has been around since Joe Gibbs implemented it, as a way to suppress Lawrence Taylor's effectiveness, but it has never been a more valuable weapon in the passing game as it is in today's NFL.With the success of the Patriots using two tight end sets in their aerial attack, more teams are looking to create mismatches against slower linebackers or smaller...

Rookie TE Escobar says he has a lot to learn

Gavin Escobar doesn't say much when he walks around the Dallas Cowboys' Valley Ranch locker room. For the most part, the second-round draft pick is the same way when he's on the field, or rushing to stuff bags with food items, something he did with other Cowboys rookies last Wednesday at North Texas Food Bank.
