2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
For 15 years, Jason Witten was a foundation of the Dallas Cowboys offense as a rock at the tight end position. That changed this offseason with the abrupt announcement that Witten opted to retire from the NFL in favor of a lucrative color commentator opening on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Witten's announcement caused a bit of a firestorm in Dallas as owner and president Jerry Jones and the Cowboy front office scrambled to deal with a position that required very little attention over the past 15 seasons. The Cowboy brain trust used a third-round pick on Dalton Schultz in the 2018 draft, and signed undrafted free agent David Wells, joining a stable of Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin, and former 2016 selection Rico Gathers.

Gathers, a former basketball player at Baylor who has limited experience playing football, is an athletic freak in the mold of Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates. At 6-6, gathers has the size and athleticism to create mismatches for linebackers, but he has yet to play in a regular season game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Beasley, Jarwin listed as questionable
Both missed practice Thursday

Dallas Cowboys
Cole Beasley, Maliek Collins, Blake Jarwin and Xavier Su’a-Filo are questionable for Saturday night (John Machota on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both Beasley and Jarwin have missed practice this week making their status for Saturday iffy at best. Beasley aggravated his ankle injury last week and if he misses, Tavon Austin could see more reps in the slot. The Cowboys would likely used TE by committee if Jarwin sits, with Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers filling the void.
