Cowboys Sign TE Jeremy Sprinkle

The Cowboys added a piece to their tight end room Wednesday, poaching one from rival Washington. Four-year Washington contributor Jeremy Sprinkle signed with Dallas.

Washington used Sprinkle as a frequent starter, trotting him out as a first-stringer in 33 games. The former fifth-round pick will join a Cowboys team that saw blocking tight end Blake Bell head back to the Chiefs this offseason.

Logan Thomas emerged as Washington’s top receiving tight end in 2020, but Sprinkle still played an extensive role. He suited up for all 17 Washington games, making six starts, but only caught two passes. The second came in Washington’s playoff loss. Sprinkle, however, played 64% of Washington’s snaps in 2019, when the team lost Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis to season-ending injuries. He caught 26 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown in his third year.

The 26-year-old blocker/occasional pass catcher will join Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz at tight end in Dallas.

    That is a horrible group. They need to upgrade in the draft.

      Jarwin was emerging before he got hurt and Schultz had a good year. Far from horrible. If Pitts is there you take him, but this group will be fine.

      Yeah I don’t know if you’ve watched them the past 2 seasons, but that tandem is far from horrible.

    Shultz was 6th in receptions 11th in receiving yards . Not to shabby

      For most of the season they played with the 3rd string o-line & a limited QB. To think that the TE got a lot of opportunities, probably says a lot less about that player than the situation. Schultz is a solid backup & Jarwin has shown signs of being that as well, but neither are currently even average starters. The position is ripe for an upgrade but likely won’t get one.

      Schultz had a wondrous season with respect to some counting numbers but had a 63 PFF rating… A player like this should not be an offensive focal point
