"If you are a receiving-only threat, you had better do more than 1.9 catches per game to justify the money that has been written in his deal as largely a pay-as-you-play," said Sturm. "So while they sort of married him, there are avenues for a divorce if 2020 doesn’t feature a 50-catch, 500-yard year with some strong blocking grades."
Jarwin signed a four-year contract worth $22 million, including $9.25 million guaranteed and a max of $24.25 million.
Blake Jarwin has been a fantasy hype train running full-steam ahead. The Cowboys offense has a handful of offensive weapons that could see their numbers spike, and Jarwin is among them with little competition at the tight end position. Sturm mentioned that despite the long-term contract, the majority of guaranteed money will be paid out 2020, leaving Jarwin in a 'show me' position entering the season.
