Browns Sign TE Gavin Escobar To Futures Deal

     

The Cleveland Browns announced Monday that they’ve signed TE Gavin Escobar to a futures contract for the 2018 season.

As of now, the Browns have signed 11 players to futures deals including:

  1. WR C.J. Board
  2. LB Austin Calitro
  3. DB Trevon Hartfield
  4. WR Bug Howard
  5. RB Josh Rounds
  6. OL Victor Salako
  7. DB B.W. Webb
  8. WR Kasen Williams
  9. DL Collin Bevins
  10. RB Kelvin Taylor
  11. TE Gavin Escobar

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Escobar, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $4.21 million rookie contract with the Cowboys and was testing the open market for the first time in his career when he signed a one-year. $885,000 contract that included $80,000 guaranteed with the Chiefs last offseason.

Unfortunately, Kansas City elected to Escobar loose coming out of the preseason. Escobar had a brief stint with the Ravens last year.

In 2016, Escobar appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and caught four passes for 30 yards receiving and one touchdown.
