Sean McKeon

McKeon is hoping to enter his fourth season with the Cowboys, and he's coming off of his most heavily involved season in Dallas. The 2022 season saw him set career-high in both offensive snaps and special teams snaps played.

Getting run at fullback and tight end, McKeon's versatility has kept him hanging around on the roster. The writing is on the wall though, and his time is up.

Dalton Schultz leaving may look like an opportunity for McKeon, but the 'Boys clearly weren't happy with the remaining options and added two rookies in Luke Schoonmaker (Round 2) and Princeton Fant (UDFA).

McKeon also seems to be the least trusted among the Cowboys' returning tight ends, as Jake Ferguson (40%) and Peyton Hendershot (26%) played higher offensive snap rates than McKeon (14%) despite the fact that McKeon was the only non-rookie in the trio.

Even with your top starter gone, you're just not going to carry six players at the tight end spot. And McKeon's FB versatility won't save him either.

Dallas also added North Dakota State fullback Hunter Luepke, and it looks like McKeon is the odd man (or perhaps one of the odd men) out in the tight end room.
