The Dallas Cowboys released one tight end and claimed another off waivers on Tuesday, neither of which many folks have likely ever heard of.
Yesterday morning, Dallas released George Bryan, an undrafted rookie out of North Carolina State. Later in the day, the team signed John Nalbone, a former fifth round pick by the Miami Dolphins who has racked up the frequent flier miles since coming into the league.
A journeyman at age 26, the Monmouth product has spent time with Miami, Minnesota, Denver, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Denver again, Seattle and now Dallas. Nalbone has seen action in just two games to this point (with Miami in 2010) and has recorded no receiving stats.
With the tight end swap Tuesday, the Cowboys still have five tight ends on the roster, including Nalbone, Jason Witten, John Phillips, fifth round pick James Hanna (out of Oklahoma) and Andrew Szczerba, an undrafted free agent out of Penn State.
