Chiefs' Gavin Escobar: Agrees to deal with Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is signing a one-year contract with the Chiefs, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Escobar arrived in Kansas City for a visit Friday, and apparently management liked what he showed them. After entering the league as a second-round pick in 2013, Escobar struggled to make much of an impact behind future Hall of Famer Jason Witten, registering only 30 catches for 333 yards and eight touchdowns in 62 games. Although playing with a tight-end-friendly quarterback like Alex Smith could bode well for Escobar, having Pro Bowler Travis Kelce on the roster will again restrict him to a reserve role.

Gavin Escobar: Visiting Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is visiting with the Chiefs on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

A 2013 second-round selection, Escobar was stuck behind Jason Witten the past four years in Dallas, catching only 30 balls for 333 yards and eight touchdowns (on 48 targets) in 62 games. He'd likely have to compete for the No. 2 tight end job in Kansas City, where Travis Kelce (shoulder) is entrenched in the top spot.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Wraps up disappointing regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar caught four passes on seven targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in 16 games in 2016.

The Cowboys had depth problems at tight end in 2016 due to injuries to James Hanna (knee) and Geoff Swaim (chest), but rather than give Escobar more responsibility, Dallas simply moved away from using two-TE sets and he actually saw fewer snaps than he had either of the previous two years. That's as clear an indication as any that the organization doesn't see Escobar as part of their future, so expect to see him in a different uniform in 2017.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Catches first pass of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar caught his first pass of the season, a two-yard touchdown, in Sunday's 35-10 rout of the Browns.

The fourth-year tight end has been a complete non-factor this season, but as has been the case throughout Escobar's career, when he does catch a pass, it tends to be in the end zone. Barring an injury to Jason Witten, don't look for Escobar's workload to increase dramatically any time soon.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Listed as Cowboys' third tight end
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar is listed behind Jason Witten and Geoff Swaim on the Cowboys' initial regular-season depth chart, Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram reports.

Escobar's listing behind Swaim is likely due in part to the torn Achilles Escobar suffered last season, as his recovery process lasted into training camp. However, Escobar avoided the PUP list, meaning he will be eligible to play Week 1. Even if he is a full go against the Giants on Sunday, Escobar's placement behind Swaim on the depth chart could mean a loss of playing time, and his fantasy production will always be hit-or-miss with the remarkably consistent Witten taking most of the snaps at tight end.
