Three free-agent tight ends the Cowboys should consider

Losing Blake Jarwin for the season is going to hurt. He’s going to need to be replaced. As the Cowboys prepare for the Atlanta Falcons, they might have to prepare to make a phone call to either of these free-agent tight ends.


Charles Clay-


Since Heath Miller retired in 2015, the Steelers have not found a reliable option at tight end. The Steelers have Vance McDonald, but cutting him would save the team nearly $7 million.


Clay could be a decent option at a cheaper cost. He hauled in 49 passes for 559 yards and two touchdowns for the Bills in 2018. Clay spent the majority of 2019 in a limited role, which makes his value cost-effective.


Delanie Walker


Walker was a backup tight end to Vernon Davis for seven years with the San Francisco 49ers. During that time, Walker posted 123 receptions for 1,465 yards and eight touchdowns. He later signed with the Titans and carved out a starting role.


In Tennessee, Walker finished with 356 catches for 4,156 yards and 26 touchdowns. He had over 800 yards receiving in four of those five seasons and went over 1,000 yards in 2015.


At 36 years old, Walker may have just enough left in the tank. He hasn’t played since November due to an ankle injury. Still, he’s a proven NFL veteran that could take over for one season.


Ed Dickson


Dickson last played for the Seahawks in 2018. This is not the best signing here but Dickson did put up 437 yards in 2017. If the Cowboys are desperate, he is available.
