Dallas claims TE off waiver wire

In a move that will engender far less controversy than the last tight end waiver claim, the Cowboys added John Nalbone, who was waived by Seattle.

They released undrafted rookie George Bryan to make room for him.

Frankly, this is the kind of news you’re used to in late June, before the bounty hearings blew up on us this week.

Nalbone was a fifth-round pick by the Dolphins in 2009, but has spent time with six different teams.

And as Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com indispensably notes, he gives the Cowboys a pair of players from that noted football factory Monmouth, along with wide receiver Miles Austin.

    Cowboys still suck.

    Their offense is pretty good, but their defense is nothing to be afraid of.

    They’ll have to do better than this picking up a TE. Look for a known guy closer to September.

    I wonder if Dallas will challenge the NYG this year, they have done a good job with the off season this year. Between Philly, Washington and Dallas, I believe the Giants will have a difficult time making the playoffs this year. Their division is looking stronger than it has in a long while.

    OUTRAGEOUS!!!!

    They violated the unwritten rule broken by Belichick that you CANNOT sign players waived by other teams.

    I’m sure fans of Seattle will as angered as Giants fans were over Ballard!

    ********

    While you were in a coma, the Cowboys picked the best defensive player in the draft, signed the most coveted defensive player in free agency, and quietly put together a very decent Linebacking corps….

    Ryan will have them in shape.

    Wonder why the patriots didn’t pick him up… never can have too many tight ends!

    With that name, even if he gets cut again he should have a future in porn.

    Don’t want to nitpick and point out that Mario Williams was clearly the most coveted defensive player in the draft, both because it doesn’t detract from beerbuds’ point and because Brandon Carr is one of the most underrated players in the game today. Without question, Dallas’ defense has improved dramatically. That doesn’t mean, however, that it’s one of the better defenses in the league, or that it isn’t the Cowboys’ biggest weakness.

    ==================================

    That’s rich dude. No one thought Brandon Carr was worth that much money. Carr wasn’t even the best CB in free agency, Lardarius Webb was. As for Claiborne being the best defender in the draft we’ll see what Fletcher Cox and Luke Kuechly have to say about that.
