Dallas Cowboys Sign Dante Rosario


The Dallas Cowboys spent a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft on tight end Gavin Escobar, but that wasn’t the last move that they have made this offseason. According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the Cowboys have agreed to terms with veteran tight end Dante Rosario on Monday.

Dallas is planning to use two more two tight end sets this season, so the added depth with Rosario on the roster is a welcomed addition. 

To make move for the veteran on the roster, the Cowboys waived undrafted rookie tight end Paul Freedman out of Virginia.

Rosario has previously played for the Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers throughout his seven year NFL career. On top of being a well-rounded tight end, Rosario will be able to contribute to the squad on special teams. 

There is no doubt that Jason Witten and Escobar are the top two tight ends on the team, but Rosario could become a solid contributor if he is called on in the right situation.
