Cowboys sign tight end Dante Rosario

The Cowboys continued to show the importance they are placing on the tight end position by signing veteran Dante Rosario on Monday.

Rosario has played for four teams since Carolina took him in the fifth round of the 2007 draft. He caught 10 passes for 95 yards last season in San Diego. He has 99 catches for 1,106 yards and eight touchdowns for his career.

He visited the Cowboys last week.

To make room for Rosario the Cowboys waived tight end Paul Freedman, who signed with the team as an undrafted free agent in April.

The Cowboys have Jason Witten, James Hanna, Gavin Escobar, Colin Cochart, Andre Smith and Rosario at tight end on the roster.
