Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reports the Browns have terminated TE Gavin Escobar's contract.

Cleveland waived six others including WR Larry Pinkard and RB Kelvin Taylor. Escobar was always a long-shot to make the Browns' final 53 but his future continues to trend downward following another unsuccessful roster stint. A 2013 second-round pick by the Cowboys, Escobar spent training camp last year with the Chiefs before landing on the Ravens' roster for two games.

Browns signed TE Gavin Escobar to a reserve/future contract.

A 2013 second-round pick by the Cowboys, Escobar is one of the many tight ends of the future Jason Witten has vanquished. Escobar spent training camp last year with the Chiefs before landing on the Ravens' roster for two games. He is a long-shot to crack the final 53 in Cleveland.

Ravens signed TE Gavin Escobar.

A second-round pick of the Cowboys in 2013, Escobar could not stick with the Chiefs out of training camp this year. The Ravens need pass-catching help, but it is unlikely Escobar carves out a fantasy-worthy role. OL Tony Bergstrom was cut in a corresponding move.

Free agent TEs Gavin Escobar and Jace Amaro worked out for the Panthers on Tuesday.

Blocker Ed Dickson is filling in for injured starter Greg Olsen (broken foot), and the Panthers are looking for more of a pass-catching option to complement Dickson. A 2013 second-rounder, Escobar couldn't make the Chiefs this summer after playing out his rookie contract in Dallas.

Free agent TE Gavin Escobar worked out for the Jets on Monday.

Escobar could not crack the final roster in Kansas City after failing to climb the depth chart in Dallas for four years. The Jets could use all the help they can get at tight end, however, and Escobar is a former second-round pick who has some theoretical upside.

Chiefs signed TE Gavin Escobar to a one-year contract.

A 2013 second round pick, Escobar never developed into more than a No. 3 tight end in Dallas. He has just 30 career receptions. Escobar adds depth behind Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris.

Free agent TE Gavin Escobar is visiting the Chiefs on Friday.

The No. 47 overall pick in 2013, Escobar has just 30 catches for 333 yards and eight touchdowns through four seasons. At 6'6/260, Escobar has the size and hands to contribute in the pass game, but he can't block a lick.

The Cowboys' official website believes there's "little chance" of the team re-signing free agent Gavin Escobar.

The No. 47 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Escobar has never caught more than nine passes in a season. He tallied four receptions in 2016. Cowboys media scout Bryan Broaddus believes Escobar never developed the necessary bulk to become a regular contributor. Now 26, Escobar has the hands and size to be a red-zone presence, but that remains purely theoretical.

Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles) is expected to open training camp on the PUP list.

He’s also in danger of starting the year on reserve/PUP. Escobar will back up Jason Witten and James Hanna when healthy.

According to's Bryan Broaddus, TE Gavin Escobar has made "great strides" in his recovery from last year's Achilles' tear.

Broaddus says Escobar is "further along than I thought" he'd be at this stage of his recovery. A 2013 second-round pick out of San Diego State, Escobar has just 26 receptions through three NFL seasons. If healthy, Escobar will open the season as Dallas' third tight end behind Jason Witten and James Hanna.

Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles) is questionable for the start of the season.

Escobar is four months into his rehab after going down in Week 15. He'll miss all of OTAs and doesn’t have a set return timetable. Escobar is a candidate to open 2016 on reserve/PUP.

Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar tore his right Achilles' tendon in Saturday night's Week 15 loss to the Jets and is done for the year.

As the injury occurred so late in the season, Escobar will be a candidate to begin 2016 on the Cowboys' PUP list. The 47th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Escobar managed just eight receptions as a third-year pro behind Jason Witten. The Cowboys can't be satisfied with Escobar as their tight end of the future.

Gavin Escobar caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Eagles.

Escobar let himself get tackled at the one-yard line on his first catch, and then lost a soft fumble on the second. All the while, his "bigger role" continued to be an illusion. There's still not enough evidence to suggest Escobar is ready to be a TE2.
