The Dallas Cowboys have made it pretty clear that they don’t believe in such a thing as too many tight ends, a trend that continued on Monday, when, according to ESPN Dallas, the team added veteran Dante Rosario.
Rosario was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the fifth round in 2007, out of Oregon. He spent four seasons in Carolina but was cut in 2011 after the team added Jeremy Shockey. He spent time in 2011 with the Broncos and the Dolphins, and then signed with the Chargers prior to 2012.
Last season with San Diego, he posted 10 catches for 99 yards to bring his career totals to 99 catches for 1,106 yards and eight touchdowns. In order to clear a roster spot for Rosario, Dallas released tight end Paul Freedman.
Dallas now has six tight ends in the fold--Rosario, Jason Witten, James Hanna, Colin Cochart, Andre Smith and Gavin Escobar, the Cowboys’ second round pick in April’s draft.
