Rosario Reunited With Bisaccia

Special teams coach Rich Bisaccia worked with Dante Rosario last year in San Diego

The Dallas Cowboys added yet another tight end to the roster this week in the form of Dante Rosario, most recently of the San Diego Chargers. With the presence of Jason Witten, and having drafted two tight ends in each of the past two drafts, many have wondered where Rosario could possibly fit in.

As it turns out, he could find a place on the special teams unit. Rosario recorded five tackles, a blocked punt and a fumble recovery last season as a member of the San Diego Chargers, where he played under Rich Bisaccia--who, of course, is the Cowboys’ new special teams coordinator.

"(Bisaccia) had a lot to do with me coming here," Rosario said, per ESPN Dallas. "I enjoyed playing under him on special teams in San Diego and I'm looking forward to doing that here and being able to learn from Jason Witten, who I consider one of the best all-around tight ends in the league."

Rosario did see some time on offense last year in San Diego, finishing with 10 catches, 95 yards and three touchdowns, but between Witten, James Hanna and second round pick Gavin Escobar, even if he makes the team, Rosario would be just the fourth option at tight end.

"If you're not a starter, you expect to play special teams with the limited number of spots they can dress (on game days)," Rosario said. "That's something that’s part of my game and it's been part of my entire career, and I plan on continuing it."
