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.
