According to the team’s website, the Dallas Cowboys have signed veteran tight end Dante Rosario.
The team wanted to add some depth to the tight end corps as they want to utilize more two tight end sets in their offense.
Rosario was chosen by Carolina Panthers in the fifth round (155th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft and the Cowboys will be his fifth team.
Known as a versatile player, Rosario can block in the backfield, split out to be a receiver, and is a solid special teams contributor.

Rosario, who has been with the Panthers, Dolphins, Broncos and Chargers, has some value as a receiver, an H-back and a special teamer. He has 99 catches in seven seasons, the best a last-second, game-winning touchdown for the Panthers at San Diego in 2008. To make room for him on the roster, the Cowboys waived rookie tight end Paul Freedman.
