Cowboys agree with 7th-rounder Shaun Chapas
By Todd Archer
SAN ANTONIO -- The Cowboys agreed to terms with another seventh-round pick by bringing fullback Shaun Chapas into the fold with a four-year deal.
Chapas was the 220th overall pick out of Georgia. They signed guard/center Bill Nagy on Wednesday night.
Chapas is in San Antonio and will practice today.
The former roommate of Matthew Stafford -- the Highland Park grad and 2009 No. 1 overall pick of Detroit -- will compete with Chris Gronkowski for the fullback spot.
Chapas scored seven touchdowns in his career. As a senior he started nine of the 11 games and had 44 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 29 yards and two touchdowns.
