The Cowboys have added a player to fill Kyle Orton’s roster spot, but it’s not a quarterback.

According to the club’s website, the team has signed tight end Dallas Walker, who had a stint with the Chargers last season.

The 26-year-old Walker spent the bulk of his collegiate career at Western Michigan, catching 16 passes for 102 yards and four TDs in 32 games (2009-2011).

The Cowboys have five tight ends: Jason Witten, Gavin Escobar, James Hanna, Jordan Najvar and Walker.

Tony Romo, Brandon Weeden and Dustin Vaughan are the club’s three quarterbacks.

    Since I’d never heard of him, and I’m guessing you hadn’t either, I clicked on the name Dustin Vaughan which takes you rotoworld, nice pic.

    People love to hate the cowboys , just be prepared to eat all those words this year offense will be between top 3-7 and defense will vastly improve its getting over looked because the lack of big names but that’s the thing they are playing defense by committee just keep rotating fresh legs will be middle of the pack but that’s enough to get into the playoffs and if the ginger can manage a game then come playoff time the offense is more than strong enough to make a run

    The new regime! The Weeden to Walker combo!

    With all respect to young Mr. Walker… Did the Cowboys just see this name and feel compelled to sign him for the PR?

    Is his middle name “George Bush Death Penalty BBQ?”

    He’s 26 and played at Western Michigan…I’m sure he’ll be awesome.

    Once he changes his name to Allas, the transaction will be complete.

    Maybe the Cowboys should have just kept John Phillips a decent tight end they sent to the Chargers in 2013?

    Guess Dallas is planning on utilizing that 5 tight end offensive package this year…

  16. 88xfactor says: Jul 17, 2014 3:45 PM

    With A name like Dallas, he’s got to fit in. Besides he’s just a Big, Young, Solid, BLOCKER.

    Ixdarexu , you said it!! As good as Demarcus Ware was, there were some terrible defenses that included him. Outside of one sack of Drew Brees at games end, I don’t recall even one game changing sack by Ware over the years. We can’t be any worse without the guy.

    Damarcus Ware was once revered as a god in Dallas. Now with atrocious cap planning, and having to cut club’s only shining star, to pay the rent, all of the fan’s are starting to belittle him.

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen in House of Cards that Jerrah has built.
