Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is encouraged by the growth he’s seen from second-year tight end Gavin Escobar.
“We know he can run the seams and can do some things in the passing game, but we need him to be solid in there [on the line],” Witten said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s worked hard. To see that package grow for him and being out on the field is going to be a lot better because he can now do both.
“I’m proud of him. I know he’s worked hard. It’s paying off for him and I think his role will continue to grow. We need that. We need that not only in the slot, but we need that other guy up the middle.”
