09/11/14 - TE Gavin Escobar was expected to play a bigger role in the offense in 2014. But in the season opener he played he played just nine snaps in the game.
The Cowboys say more time is coming for the 2013 second round pick who so far has been labeled a bust. Escobar had nine catches for 134 yards as rookie last year.
"Gavin had the shoulder injury over the last couple of weeks of the preseason so he didn't play as much toward the end of the preseason as we would have liked and did a good job getting himself back," coach Jason Garrett said. "I think he only played six plays in the game. We had more plays planned for him but when you get behind like that, you get into more of a three wide receiver mode and that's what we did. But Gavin has developed well both as a run blocker and certainly as a receiver over the last year or so and we anticipate more action for him as the year goes on."
08/17/14 - TE Gavin Escobar suffered a right shoulder injury against the Ravens. It came in the third quarter of Saturday's 37-30 loss to the Ravens after laying out for a 37-yard completion. Coach Jason Garrett doesn't think it was too serious. But it is being checked out. The Cowboys will update his status on Monday.
06/25/13 - TE Gavin Escobar, a second-round pick, signed with the Cowboys. Terms were not disclosed. This was a surprise pick considering the Cowboys didn't have a need for a pass-catching tight end with seven-time Pro Bowler Jason Witten coming off the best season of his career. But Escobar was considered among the top three tight ends in the draft. He is a playmaker and will signal change to the two-tight end offense that New England employs. He needs to improve as a run blocker but will be a better red-zone target than Witten.

04/28/13 - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones demands that the team change its offense after they drafted tight end Gavin Escobar in the second round. "You saw him coming," Jones recalled his conversations in the Cowboys war room. "Now are we all resolved to doing it different relative to injecting that influence in this offense? Don't come in here with same old same old." Jones continued: "I took a roll call and said if we go this route with the tight end we are going to shake it up around here relative to what we are doing. It's going to be different. I joked we are going to pass the paper around and we are all going to sign it. We are going to be different."
QUOTE TO NOTE: "We were looking at ways to give Romo's talents a better shot. I'm unabashed about that. That was our emphasis." -- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones taking three offensive players in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. - The Sports Xchange
