A Dallas Cowboys tight end is calling it a career.

James Hanna was placed on the reserve/retired list Friday, the team announced.

Hanna, 28, has battled knee injuries in recent seasons. He played in all 16 games last season, recording his first — and only — touchdown reception of his career.

Hanna joined the Cowboys in 2012 as a sixth-round pick out of Oklahoma.

The Cowboys will gain $2.75 million in cap space with Hanna retiring.

The Dallas Cowboys have the 19th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft on April 26-28. These are the 15 guys most likely to end up in Dallas, according to draft experts.
