Jarwin could see a significant increase in snaps with Jason Witten moving to the broadcast booth, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

In the wake of Witten's retirement, it's Jarwin and not Rico Gathers (concussion/jaw) who's been drawing the most praise from the coaching staff and front office. Jarwin suited up for only one game as an undrafted rookie last year, and his college career -- 41 catches in 28 games at Oklahoma State -- doesn't hint at a player who's going to suddenly blossom as a standout pass catcher. The 23-year-old does fit the mold of recent Cowboys depth tight ends who were versatile enough to handle both blocking and receiving assignments without tipping the offense's hand with respect to run/pass play selection. Barring the addition of a veteran free-agent tight end, Jarwin has the opportunity to inherit a lot of snaps, though it's a longer shot that he'll be able to turn them into useful fantasy production. Geoff Swaim (knee), Gathers, fourth-round rookie Dalton Schultz and undrafted rookie David Wells will also compete for snaps during training camp.
