The Cowboys have chosen to go with a committee approach at wide receiver and tight end, hoping quantity can make up for the quality of the work Dez Bryant and Jason Witten put together for so long. Somehow the group has to make up for the 132 receptions, 1,398 yards, and 11 touchdowns Bryant and Witten combined for in 2017.

The story said seven padded practices into training camp is hardly enough time to make a conclusion, but the passing game so far has not had the juice it has had in the past with Bryant and Witten on the field. OC Scott Linehan admitted in the story it's a work in progress and the team is not where they want to be. Prescott was quoted as saying they are still trying to gain chemistry.

With Jason Witten retiring, Blake Jarwin is first in line to get the Witten snaps, targets and catches. He caught the Cowboys' attention as an undrafted free agent and they called him up from the practice squad to avoid losing him.
Jarwin was active for one game last season and has never caught an NFL pass. There is also competition at the position so he is not guaranteed the job or even snaps.
2018 Bottom Line
Just because Jarwin might replace Witten doesn't mean he will be the next Jason Witten. Right now, Jarwin is going undrafted and is our No. 40 ranked tight end. Jarwin is somebody to watch but not worth a roster spot to start the season.
