Do You Like The Cowboys Signing of Dante Rosario?


There is one thing for sure about the Dallas Cowboys as of late: they are far from predictable. In yet another move that has some fans scratching their heads, the Cowboys signed former San Diego Charger tight end Dante Rosario. What makes this move even more interesting is Dallas drafted tight end Gavin Escobar in the second round of this year’s NFL draft. With Jason Witten and James Hanna already filling up the depth chart, there seems to be little doubt that the Cowboys are going to be playing a lot more two and three tight end sets. Dallas also has tight ends Colin Cochart and Andre Smith on their current roster.

The 28-year old Rosario is going into his eighth year, averaging just 13 receptions a season. Far from an offensive juggernaut, Rosario did have a four reception, three touchdown game against the Tennessee Titans last year.

The Cowboys have always had a good relationship with the Chargers when it comes to free agents. It was by way of San Diego that wideout Laurent Robinson was acquired two years ago. And the Cowboys have played the Chargers in pre-preseason match-ups while training camp has been in Oxnard, CA the past few seasons. No doubt, former San Diego head coach Norv Turner had a lot to do with that.

With the addition of Rosario, some are hinting at the end of the fullback position for the 2013 Cowboys. This means fullback Lawrence Vickers could be out of a job soon. But what do you think? Do you like the Rosario signing? Vote below:

    Whether, or not, we like it…doesn’t really matter.

    The long, and short of it, is that JG is determined to get his multiple TE offense off of the ground (Witten, Fasano, Bennett, Phillips, Hanna, Escobar, Rosario, etc.) and he’ll try every (available) TE in the country, until it hits/he is no longer employed.

    It’s OK. Would rather have seen an upgrade at RT or OG but it’s ok.
