  Bears | Several more sitting tonight    Thu Aug 14, 06:55 PM

Chicago Bears FS Adrian Wilson (Achilles'), TE Dante Rosario (undisclosed), C Brian De La Puente (undisclosed), WR Chris X. Williams (hamstring), OG Eben Britton (hamstring), CB Isaiah Frey (hamstring), SS Craig Steltz (pectoral), OT Jordan Mills (foot) and DE Willie Young (quadriceps) will not be available tonight against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Mostly this is a matter of resting some guys who are banged up but who they also know the value of already. If it goes beyond this game, then worry. For now, nothing to see here.

  Bears | Dante Rosario leading candidate for No. 2 TE job    Tue Jul 15, 09:00 PM

Chicago Bears TE Dante Rosario is the leading candidate to be the team's No. 2 tight end this year, according to Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com. TE Matthew Mulligan, TE Zach Miller and TE Jeron Mastrud will battle for the remaining backup spots during training camp.

Footballguys view: So long as the Black Unicorn Martellus Bennett doesn't get hurt, the backup tight end in Chicago is not fantasy relevant. Even if Bennett gets banged up there are likely better options out there for waiver wire purposes.

  Bears | Expected to re-sign Dante Rosario    Wed Mar 12, 03:13 PM

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said he believes there is a good chance the team will re-sign free-agent TE Dante Rosario.

Footballguys view: More of a blocker or warm body, Rosario is firmly behind Martellus Bennett, who is still nursing his sad-face since brother Mike stayed in Seattle.

  Bears | Dante Rosario cut    Mon Mar 10, 05:15 PM

The Chicago Bears have released TE Dante Rosario.

Footballguys view: A weird move for the Bears considering they just signed Rosario to a one-year contract in late February. He could catch on with some team as a third tight end and camp body at the very least.

  Bears | Week 1 Inactives    Sun Sep 8, 11:55 AM

The Chicago Bears have declared CB C.J. Wilson, TE Dante Rosario, DL David Bass, OT James Brown, WR Marquess Wilson, RB Michael Ford, DL Zach Minter inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Wilson could be an interesting prospect to track if Earl Bennett doesn't improve this year. He was a late pick, but was projected much higher before he quit the Mike Leach-coached Washington State team last year.

  Bears | Dante Rosario acquired    Mon Sep 2, 10:26 AM

The Chicago Bears acquired TE Dante Rosario from the Dallas Cowboys for a seventh-round pick in 2014.

Footballguys view: The Bears add a veteran backup here at the TE position. Rosario won't be much of a fantasy factor in 2013. He'll be behind Martellus Bennett and Steve Maneri on the depth chart.

  Cowboys | Two players to compete for one roster spot    Thu Jun 27, 02:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys FB Lawrence Vickers and TE Dante Rosario are expected to compete for one roster spot during training camp because the team is considering phasing out the fullback position in order to use more two tight end sets. Rosario could have an edge because of his special teams play as well as his lower salary.

Footballguys view: If Vickers gets bounced from the roster there could be a small market for his services. There's reportedly five teams (Dolphins, Ravens, Giants, Chiefs, Texans) interested in free agent fullback Vonta Leach. The teams that don't get Leach could take a look at the 'V' back on the open market.

  Cowboys | Dante Rosario expected to work on special teams    Wed Jun 5, 03:48 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Dante Rosario is expected to help out primarily on special teams because he worked with special teams coach Rich Bisaccia when both were with the San Diego Chargers. 'If you're not a starter you expect to play special teams with the limited number of spots they can dress (on game-days),' Rosario said. 'That's something that's part of my game and it's been part of my entire career and I plan on continuing it.' Rosario is also expected to receive time on offense.

  Cowboys | Dante Rosario agrees to terms    Mon Jun 3, 02:08 PM

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with free-agent TE Dante Rosario (Chargers). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team will waive TE Paul Freedman in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Rosario was added for veteran depth but we're not expecting much from him in 2013. He'll compete for a roster spot with James Hanna. The Cowboys top two TEs are Jason Witten and rookie Gavin Escobar (San Diego State).

  Colts | Tryout Dante Rosario    Fri May 24, 03:20 PM

The Indianapolis Colts tried out free-agent TE Dante Rosario (Chargers) Thursday, May 23.

Footballguys view: Rosario is nothing more than a backup at this point in his career. The Colts are set at the position with Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener. We should see the TE get more targets this year under new OC Pep Hamilton.

  Chargers | Dante Rosario opening eyes    Sat Jun 9, 01:45 AM

San Diego Chargers TE Dante Rosario has looked surprisingly good during organized team activities (OTAs).

Footballguys view: No real surprise here. Rosario is a converted college WR who made a few "wow" plays during his time with the Carolina Panthers. He's competing for a roster spot behind Antonio Gates and Randy McMichael.

  Chargers | Dante Rosario signs    Tue Mar 20, 11:56 AM

The San Diego Chargers signed free-agent TE Dante Rosario (Broncos) to a one-year deal Monday, March 19. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Rosario once beat the Chargers on a game-winning catch in the last seconds, now he can't hurt them this year, at least not as an opponent.

  Broncos | Not using tight ends often    Wed Dec 21, 03:53 PM

The Denver Broncos are rarely using TEs Dante Rosario, Daniel Fells and Virgil Green in the offense, preferring to keep them in as blocking weapons most of the time. 'We have been asked to block more, and that's just doing our part in making sure the offense runs smoothly,' Rosario said. 'There's going to be games where tight ends are thrown to quite a few times, and there's going to be games like this last game (vs. the Patriots) where we don't get thrown to at all.'

Footballguys view: The Broncos could really use a move TE to help young QB Tim Tebow. They have rookie Julius Thomas on the roster and he has good upside. However, a high ankle sprain has held back his development this year and he is inactive on most gamedays.

  Broncos | Dante Rosario signed    Thu Sep 22, 01:06 PM

The Denver Broncos have signed free-agent TE Dante Rosario (Dolphins). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. In a corresponding move, the team waived LB Mike Mohamed.

Footballguys view: Rosario was in training camp with the Broncos before getting cut, and he also played for John Fox in Carolina. With Julius Thomas having a high ankle sprain the Broncos needed to add depth at the position.

  Dolphins | Make roster moves    Tue Sep 20, 07:23 PM

The Miami Dolphins announced Tuesday, Sept. 20, that they have signed free-agent CB Nate Jones (Broncos) and DL Igor Olshansky (Cowboys) and released RB Larry Johnson and TE Dante Rosario in corresponding moves.

Footballguys view: Johnson became expendable when Daniel Thomas's career did a 180 vs. the Texans.

The Miami Dolphins have signed free-agent TE Dante Rosario (Broncos) and OL Ryan Cook (Vikings). Terms of the contracts were not disclosed. In corresponding moves, the team released C Joe Berger and LB A.J. Edds.

Footballguys view: Rosario isn't much of a blocker but can be effectively used as a receiving weapon. He plays like a super sized WR and can attack the deep middle seam of the defense consistently.

  Broncos | Dante Rosario released    Sat Sep 3, 11:49 AM

The Denver Broncos have released TE Dante Rosario.

Footballguys view: The Broncos may only keep three TEs on the final roster. Rosario knows the John Fox system but failed to impress much during training camp or the preseason.

  Broncos | Dante Rosario agrees to terms    Sun Jul 31, 06:02 PM

The Denver Broncos have reached a contract agreement with free-agent TE Dante Rosario (Panthers), pending a physical with the team Sunday, July 31. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Not a surprise here. John Fox will have Rosario compete with rookies Julius Thomas and Virgil Green to be the team's move TE in 2011. Richard Quinn is seen as a blocker more than a receiver.
