With Martellus Bennett headed to New York, the Dallas Cowboys have only two tight ends on the roster in Jason Witten and John Phillips and, obviously, they’re in the market for another. Considering the pool of tight ends in this year’s draft is rather shallow and that Dallas has more immediately pressing concerns, it appears they’ll look to free agency to address the position.
Veteran tight end Joey Haynos worked out for the team at Valley Ranch last week, after spending 2011 out of football, ESPN Dallas reports.
Haynos was picked up by the Packers out of the University of Maryland in 2008 but was let go before the season. He then joined the Dolphins, where he spent the next two seasons, recording 21 catches and two touchdowns as backup to Anthony Fasano.
Haynos suffered a foot injury in the preseason of 2010 and was let go by Miami. He was invited to camp by Jacksonville in August of the following year but was cut by the Jaguars just around a month later.
