Dallas Cowboys trade TE Dante Rosario to Chicago Bears


The Chicago Bears are beginning to stockpile former Dallas Cowboys tight ends. Just a few days before the start of the 2013-14 regular season, the two teams have agreed to a deal that will send tight end Dante Rosario from Big D to the Windy City.

In exchange for Rosario, the Cowboys have received a 2014 seventh-round draft pick.

When the Cowboys used their second-round pick in 2013 to select tight end Gavin Escobar, the tight end depth on the roster was very deep. Moving Rosario is a win-win for both sides.

While Rosario won’t be a major player for the team or a guy that will light up the stat sheet, he is a capable pass catcher that can also contribute on special teams. There is a spot on every NFL roster for a player like that.

In Chicago, Rosario joins former Cowboys second-round pick Martellus Bennett, who is expected to emerge as one of Jay Cutler’s favorite targets this season.

    They said the same thing about being one of Eli Manning’s favorite targets. LOL

    Another 7th rounder. Rosario was the only fullback type of player we had on the roster. I hope his spot is not immediately filled with a special teams linebacker. What is going on here?
