    When Geoff Swaim glances around the film room at his fellow tight ends with the Dallas Cowboys Adam Ottavino Colorado Rockies Jersey , he doesn't see Jason Witten anymore.

    As for what's showing on the screen, Swaim can't help but see familiar No. 82 because the franchise leader in games was on the field nearly every snap for 15 years before his sudden retirement to go into broadcasting last month.

    "Well, it's hard to watch film and not have Witt in the film. You know what I mean?" Swaim said with a chuckle Wednesday after the final voluntary offseason practice before mandatory minicamp next week.

    "I don't know what tape you can bring up of the Cowboys in any sort of relevant way that Witt's not on the field. It's always him. It's always him. It's always him. And it's that way for a reason."

    Swaim is the team's oldest tight end at 24 with nine regular-season catches and 94 yards to show for his first three years in the league. That's nine catches and 94 yards more than any of the other four 鈥?and 1,143 catches and 12,354 yards fewer than Witten, the club leader in both.

    The next-oldest tight end? Rico Gathers, the former Baylor basketball standout who hadn't played football in nearly a decade when the Cowboys drafted him two years ago. He's 24, but four months younger than Swaim.

    Next is Blake Jarwin, a second-year player who got in one game last season after the Cowboys activated him from the practice squad. Rookie Dalton Schultz, a fourth-round pick in April, was 6 when the Cowboys drafted Witten in 2003. The fifth tight end is undrafted rookie David Wells.

    "Everybody has to start a game at some point in time, or play a first play at some point in time," new tight ends coach Doug Nussmeier said. "I don't look at it as a negative."

    The Cowboys had some experience besides Witten after last season, but James Hanna beat the 11-time Pro Bowl player to retirement by a couple of weeks. The 28-year-old Hanna had persistent knee issues.

    The player most likely to do a double take was Swaim Cheap Rashaad Penny Jersey , a seventh-round pick out of Texas in 2015. In a matter of days, he went from understudy still building his resume to the only Dallas tight end with one.

    "It was sort of overnight," Swaim said. "But again you have to adjust and move on. That's how everyone approached it, 'Wow, OK, here's what's in front of us now.' It doesn't do me any good to look in the past. It doesn't do me any good to go, 'What's going on?'"

    Gathers missed all of last season with a concussion after an impressive preseason that raised hopes about his development. It was a significant setback for someone with little football background who chose the NFL over the NBA because he thought it was his best shot at a pro career.

    Now, though, Witten's retirement has left the position wide open for the 6-foot-8, 285-pound Gathers, who hasn't played in the regular season yet.

    "There's really no major opportunity to really do anything of growth from as far as expecting to play, expecting to take snaps from him because he's not supposed to let that happen," Gather said. "It opens up windows for everybody to be able to come in and prove themselves."

    Schultz, who played at Stanford Authentic Deadrin Senat Jersey , saw reports of Witten drawing interest from the networks the way longtime friend and teammate Tony Romo did a year earlier when the former Cowboys quarterback decided to retire rather than play for another team after losing his job to Dak Prescott.

    It's only natural for draft prospects to ponder the idea of replacing a franchise icon such as Witten, who was days from turning 36 when he retired. It just doesn't get much past the pondering.

    "It's all speculation, right?" Schultz said. "I think people try to do their best at like, hey, there's a potential fit. But in reality, you're going to go to whoever you're going to go and that's just how it's going to be."

    Now the question is who says how it's going to be in the tight end room for the Cowboys. And if anyone says it's automatically Swaim, he would disagree. He has a new favorite word for how that leadership grows: organic.

    "We're figuring things out together," Swaim said. "There's no need for me to be in there yelling at somebody who's a year younger than me. That doesn't make sense. That wouldn't be right."

    Just as it doesn't seem right for him to glance around the room and not see Witten.

    Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay turned up the volume on his first-unit offense, blasting the usual training camp soundtrack of rap music even louder as they went through a series of unscripted situational drills Saturday.

    It wasn't enough to silence the starters, as wide receiver Brandin Cooks made a loud statement with a series of impressive catches.

    "He did a great job today and he's done that over the course of his career," McVay said. "Brandin is an exciting player. I've really been impressed with how quickly he has been able to learn the system, take ownership on the offense, and just getting out here making plays."

    Those highlights included catching a crossing route through traffic and making a contested leaping grab on the next play during a team period, showing why the Rams traded for him in April and signed the former Oregon State standout to a five-year extension last month.

    With a new contract in hand Cheap Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , Cooks feels free to go all out entering his fifth season.

    "I think a lot of guys when you get that (extension), you go even harder just because you know have that security so you just lay it all out there because of the team believing so highly in you," said Cooks, who had 65 receptions for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns for New England last season.

    Cooks has had at least 1,000 yards receiving and seven touchdown receptions in each of the last three seasons, and early returns in practice have justified McVay's belief that Cooks will be more than a deep threat complimenting fellow starters Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. However, Kupp believes that one aspect of Cooks' skill set will have a major impact on how opposing defenses play against the Rams.

    "The most visible sign of someone that's fast is when they catch the deep ball, but you don't see how much that influences things underneath and clears zones out and allows for guys to get open," Kupp said. "For the threat that he is, the way safeties are going to have to play him, it's a huge advantage for us. We just have to make sure we're doing our job, the other 10 guys on the field."

    McVay likes how Cooks fits in with the other receivers on the roster, a group that was overhauled through free agency Authentic Stephen Piscotty Jersey , the draft and trades last year before sending first and sixth-round picks to the Patriots for Cooks. What stands out to Kupp is how each receiver is capable of filling every role in McVay's system, praising Cooks for integrating into the offense so quickly.

    "Our receiving corps, just the guys that we have, there is so much diversity in terms of the strengths of our players that I don't think it's on one person," Kupp said. "It's not one person's job to run this route. It's not only one person that can run the deep route. And because of that, it makes it really easy for us to be able to move around and be diverse in our looks and even harder for the defense to get a bead on."?

    The Rams' backups on defense certainly struggled to keep up with quarterback Jared Goff and his collection of receivers. Kupp was especially pleased with how the offense performed in the red zone during practice. Despite leading the NFL in scoring at 29.9 points per game last season, the Rams got touchdowns on 53.4 percent of possessions inside the 20-yard line.

    Cooks showed he can help there by tapping his toes down in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown during a red-zone drill.

    "He can do a variety of things, but it's exciting to be able to work with players like him where you're kind of not really limited in any way you can utilize him," McVay said.

    NOTES: Tight end Gerald Everett will not travel with the team next week for joint practices with Baltimore because of a sprained shoulder, McVay said. . Safety Lamarcus Joyner, who has been limited because of a sore Achilles, should return to practice Monday.
