Eric Frampton comes alive in Dallas

The Cowboys added some depth and special teams experience Wednesday, but they’re probably no closer to knowing who their starting safeties are as a result of the move.

According to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys brought back Eric Frampton. To make room for him on the roster, they waived/injured defensive tackle Robert Callaway.

Frampton started two games late in the year for the Cowboys, the only two starts in his six NFL seasons. He’s also played for the Vikings and Lions.

The Cowboys have a hash of players fighting for starting jobs. Barry Church, coming back from last year’s Achilles tear, seems to have the lead for one spot. Free agent pickup Will Allen and 2012 fourth-rounder Matt Johnson have split reps at the other spot, and they also used a third-rounder this year on safety J.J. Wilcox.

    …a Frampton comes alive reference? Will 85% of your readers get that? 1976 was a long time ago man.

    Well, did they waive or injure Callaway?

    Love the photo of him getting blown up by Alfred Morris. Expecting more of the same this season.

    I see what you did there with the title of the story.

    All right Gantt, I have to ask: Is the title an intentional pun/alliteration, and if so, do you prefer album 1 or 2?

    Looking at the picture-“Woke up this morning with a facemask in my hand”.

    Haha. Frampton Comes Alive.

    Darin Gantt must be at least 35 years old.

    Everybody in your 20s…That was a record. Back when people bought records. On vinyl. Or 8-tracks.

    I can assure you it was extremely popular in 1976.

    Frampton comes alive circa Peter 1976?

  17. ayblincoln says: Jun 5, 2013 7:54 PM

    Ha great headline!

  18. contract says: Jun 5, 2013 8:12 PM

    So many kids will be oblivious to that reference.

  19. punkins1966 says: Jun 5, 2013 9:28 PM

    Love the headline

  20. jrcoop says: Jun 5, 2013 9:52 PM

    Frampton Live… what’s that? OK, I admit it, I flashed back to the ’70’s as soon as I read it.

  21. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Jun 5, 2013 10:18 PM

    Signing Framton makes me think they may plan to cut one of their safeties.

    “Do you, you, feel like I do?”

  22. icdogg says: Jun 5, 2013 10:27 PM

    He don’t hesitate ’cause his love won’t wait.

    I should be too young for that reference but I know it some how. I think it was from Mike Myers on SNL/Wayne’s World.

  24. joetoronto says: Jun 6, 2013 4:54 AM

    I still remember the day that album dropped, that was a real game changer in the music industry.

    When I first saw the headline, I thought Peter Frampton had been booked at Cowboys Stadium.
