Rookie tight end Gavin Escobar said he knew his right foot was out of bounds when he caught a ball in the end zone from a scrambling Alex Tanney.
“I caught it, and I looked down to try and keep my feet in. I kind of was hoping that he didn’t see it, because I could kind of tell my right foot was a little bit in the white,” he said. “Tanney made a good play on the run. It was a good ball. I’ve just got to keep my feet in.”
Escobar said the ball did not surprise him. He said as a pass-catching tight end, he always expects to see the ball coming to him.
But putting both feet down in the NFL? That’s something to work on.
“It was like an inch short or an inch too shy,” he said. “Got to get them in. So you know, will work on that and get that cleaned up.”
Escobar caught five passes for 29 yards in Thursday’s game against the Texans.
