McGee Signs with the Cowboys
McGee, a seasoned veteran with extensive exprience in the west coast offense, caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown last season for the Bengals. He has 299 career catches, with most of those coming in his first five seasons, including a career-high 55 in 1995.
McGee is a big target, with decent speed and soft hands, but he perhaps is known best as a straight up blocker.
Offensive Coordinator Bruce Coslet will likely capitalize on his blocking strengths by utilizing McGee in dual tight end/one back formations. Coslet is also very familiar with McGee's skills, as he coached him from 1994-2000 while he was the offensive coordinator and head coach in Cincinnati.
The big tight end comes to Dallas with high expectations, as he looks to significantly increase his productivity on the field. With incentives, he will have the ability to earn an extra $150,000, $100,000 and $100,000 in each of the upcoming 3 seasons.
The addition of McGee gives the Cowboys 4 tight ends on their current roster. With McGee as the starter, Mike Lucky, Jeff Robinson, and Bob Slowikowski will battle it out for the second team spot.
Tony was cut by the Bengals this past Thursday.
"He's proven what he can do in the NFL," Dave Campo said. "He's a good player, and we've addressed our need at tight end."
