ESPN Dallas does not expect the Cowboys to bring back impending free agent TE John Phillips.

Much like Martellus Bennett last season, Phillips will hit free agency looking for a place to emerge from Jason Witten's shadow.

The Cowboys will likely roll with James Hanna as their No. 2 tight end next season.

Cowboys backup TE John Phillips has missed the last week of practice due to an ankle injury.

Right now, rookies James Hanna and Andrew Szczerba are the only healthy tight ends on the roster. It's possible the Cowboys could kick the tires on veteran free agent Jeremy Shockey. Still, Phillips' injury isn't known to be serious and he's flashed solid pass-catching ability when given chances in practice. He'll be a player for deep-leaguers to watch if he ends up starting Week 1.
