Ravens sign former Cowboys second-round pick TE Gavin Escobar

The Dallas Cowboys have done pretty well for themselves in the NFL Drafts of the past few seasons. Specifically picking up starters along the offensive line, finding their star running back in Ezekiel Elliott and landing a franchise quarterback in the fourth round in Dak Prescott.

One name who, unfortunately, didn’t pan out for the Cowboys was tight end Gavin Escobar, who the team spent a second-round pick on back in 2013. Escobar played in 62 games but totaled just 30 receptions for 333 yards and eight touchdowns over four seasons.

He was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs but failed to stick with the team. Now, the tight end-needy Baltimore Ravens have decided to make a move and sign the 26-year-old, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

The former Cowboy tallied 122 receptions for 1,646 yards and 17 touchdowns in three seasons with San Diego State. He’ll now join a Ravens team who has lost multiple tight ends this season to injury.
