James Hanna could be the No. 2 tight end for the Cowboys this season behind Jason Witten, but that doesn't mean he's headed for a big role on offense. In 2015, Hanna had nine catches for 79 yards, and he's still looking for his first NFL touchdown in four seasons. Keep an eye on his role in training camp, but Hanna is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
Hanna signed a three-year, $8.25 million deal with the Cowboys on Friday, Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram reports. Hanna has been a reliable blocking presence for Dallas over the last four years, but carries little to no fantasy value. The 26-year-old registered just nine catches for 79 yards last season.
Cowboys tight end James Hanna had a scope performed on his knee Saturday, DallasCowboys.com reports. It was just a minor clean-up procedure and Hanna could return to practice by the end of the week, but it still seems unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 3's game against the Falcons. Geoff Swaim would once again by the Cowboys' third tight end Sunday if Hanna is eventually ruled out.
Cowboys tight end James Hanna (left knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports. Hanna was listed as questionable heading into the Week 2 matchup, but didn't progress enough to the point where the Cowboys felt he would be able to suit up Sunday. With Hanna slated for an inactive designation, Geoff Swaim is expected to make his NFL debut as the Cowboys' third tight end behind Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar.
Cowboys tight end James Hanna suffered a sprained knee during the team's loss to the Chargers on Thursday and could wind up being sidelined for up to two weeks, per the Dallas Morning News. Hanna, who is the team's reserve tight end, may wind up missing the rest of training camp, which could give rookie Geoff Swaim the chance to make an impression on coaches. In three seasons with the Cowboys, Hanna has 22 catches for 207 yards.
