The Washington Football Team needs help at tight end. Outside of starter Logan Thomas, Washington’s three backup tight ends combined for three receptions and 18 yards in 2020.

On Wednesday, Washington lost its backup tight end when Jeremy Sprinkle signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

Sprinkle was a fifth-round draft pick out of Arkansas in 2017 and finished his career in Washington with 34 receptions for 301 yards and three touchdowns. Sprinkle caught just one pass for six yards in 2020.

Fans won’t remember Sprinkle’s time in D.C. too fondly. The Football Team has battled age and injuries at the position in recent years until Thomas stabilized the position last season.

Before 2019, Sprinkle had several opportunities to seize playing time and generally ended up dropping wide-open passes or stumbling on a key block. After playing out the final year of his rookie contract in 2020, Washington was clearly planning to move on from Sprinkle.

Meanwhile, Washington will look to the 2021 NFL draft for help behind Thomas, where everyone outside of Florida star Kyle Pitts is a viable option.
