Blake Jarwin Agrees To Extension With Cowboys

Sources tell Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL.com that tight end Blake Jarwin has agreed to a three-year deal to remain with the Cowboys for up to $24.25MM with $9.25MM in guarantees.

Jarwin was an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State in 2017 who earned his way onto the Cowboys practice squad, before a mid-season promotion brought him to the 53-man roster. While he only appeared in one game (and recorded no statistics) as a rookie, over the past two seasons, Jarwin has made 58 receptions for 678 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns.

The return of Jason Witten last season likely cut into what would have been an even larger role for Jarwin last season in Dallas. Still just 26, the Cowboys clearly have high hopes for him to develop in a frontline contributor as his new deal pays him in line with a mid-tier starter.

    Seems like a massive overpay for those stats. Am I missing something Cowboy fans?

      I’m just a couch GM, but I’ve loved what Jarwin has done so far. I (unpopular cowboy fan opinion) did NOT like Witten coming back last year bc I wanted Jarwin to be on the field for those snaps. The dude is good. Hopefully he has the chance to show it this year with Witten out of the way.

    Jones should of signed Hooper. Just wait and see how much Jones pays Amari. That will be the real overpay.

      So Jones should’ve overpaid for Hooper instead of signing Jarwin. Now you say, well he didn’t overpay for a TE, but wait for it, he’ll “overpay” for the best FA WR on the market.

      Wait for it, wait for it …

      mlbnyy – you need a new hobby, cause the Cowboys trolling isn’t going well for you.

    how do you get to $8 mil + per year off a $3.3 mil 2nd round tender…and still have Amari unsigned worrying about cap space!

    I like the guy, but do not see any reason why you pay him $8 million a year for 3 years, even if you don’t bring back Witten.

      I’ve seen in two other sites that is a 4 year 22MM deal… I wonder who’s correct
