Will TE Blake Jarwin Get a Chance To Dominate Giants Again?

Among every and negotiation story concerning the , you might've forgotten about a big storyline entering the 2019 NFL regular season. One of the greatest players in is making his return to the football field after spending last year in the booth calling games for . When the Cowboys line up versus the next Sunday, will suit up.

In turn, Jason Witten's return made us stop thinking too much about last year's starter at for the Cowboys, . After all, the 25-year old doesn't have a huge track record in the NFL. The last regular season game he played was his career best, though. Against who? None other than the Giants, who play the Cowboys in the season opener.

On , in a shootout game in which didn't play as the Cowboys had clinched a playoff berth, threw for 387 yards and four touchdowns versus a Giants that struggled all season long. With the on full display, Prescott's best weapon that day was Blake Jarwin.

Will TE Blake Jarwin see an Increased Offensive Role in 2019?

Jarwin ended the day with 119 yards and three touchdowns. It's an interesting stat when you start looking at his season stats. All year long, Jarwin had more than three targets in only three occasions. In said games, Jarwin racked up 56, 45 and 119 yards. All , I've wondered if he has more to offer than what we witnessed from 's .

I do believe we'll see a bigger role from tight ends under , but a bigger question lies on playing time. Before retiring, most of the snaps went to Jason Witten. Even with optimistic reports from , it's hard to know how the future Hall of Famer will perform at age 37.

Will his speed be there? Did taking a year off help him get back to a better level of play? Will he do better or worse than the last time we saw him on the gridiron? I guess we won't know for sure until we see him play real football next Sunday.

Despite how little we've seen from him, I'd honestly like to see Jarwin get considerable playing time. I must confess, Jason Witten is my favorite Cowboy ever. However, I'm not convinced about him taking a huge load of the snaps. I'd rather have him split most of the work with Jarwin, who's young and could develop into a legit starter in the future.

He hasn't had plenty of chances to prove his worth, so I'd like for him to get a fair opportunity at playing time. What better time to give him such a chance than when they Cowboys take on the Giants a few days from now?
