The Dallas Cowboys have decided to bring safety Eric Frampton back into the fold, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.
Frampton was picked up early last season to help shore up the position group after Barry Church was lost for the season to an Achilles tear. He appeared in 13 games, recording 21 tackles (one for a loss) and three pass defended. He led Dallas with 21 special team tackles and even started in the team’s final two games.
Before getting the call from Dallas last fall, Frampton spent time with the Oakland Raiders and Minnesota Vikings. He was drafted in the fifth round in 2007 by the Detroit Lions but failed to make the team out of camp, after which he headed to Oakland.
In order to make room for Frampton, Dallas cut ties with defensive lineman Rob Callaway, mostly a practice squad member who saw action in a pair of games last year but did not get his name in the stat books. Callaway reportedly needs knee surgery to repair a microfracture.
