Cowboys' tight end search will never end
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- With the Cowboys attempting to marry themselves to the two-tight end offense for the third time in eight years by taking Gavin Escobar in the second round of last month’s draft, the search for more tight ends never ends.
ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder joins Fitzsimmons & Durrett to discuss Jerry Jones' recent comments, Cowboys OTAs, Dez Bryant and more.
Finding a veteran tight end with a blocking bent would appear to be a need behind Witten. Escobar, Hanna and Cochart are considered more pass catching tight ends. At 267 pounds, Smith would seem to fit the bill as a blocker. He was a late-season add to the practice squad in 2012 and the Cowboys decided he warranted a further look.
If the attempt to land Shuler is any indication, the Cowboys are not done looking for tight end help.
