It’s been an odd week for tight end Asa Watson. The brother of Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, Asa entered the Patriots’ preseason opener as the starting tight end.
Then, Watson was cut.
Then, he cleared waivers — possibly due to a rookie contract that contained $17,000 in guaranteed salary. Now, per a league source, Watson will be signing with the Cowboys.
Watson played college football at North Carolina State. He signed with the Patriots after going undrafted.
