The Cowboys will add free agent tight end Jason Pociask to the roster as early as today, a source said.
Pociask is former 2006 fifth round pick of the Jets. He spent one season with the Jets. And has since bounced around the practice squad or offseason rosters of the Patriots, Buccaneers, Colts, Panthers and Seahawks.
The 6-foot-3, 259-pound blocking tight end was most recenlty with the Florida Tuskers of the UFL.
He is coming to Dallas to help shore up an injury ravaged position that has the Cowboys practicing with only two healthy tight ends, Jason Witten and the recently signed DajLeon Farr. Martellus Bennett (ankle), Scott Sicko (concussion) and John Phillips (knee) are all sidelined.
The Cowboys are being cautious with Bennett after he had a setback with his sprained ankle earlier in camp. Sicko will likely be out another week, while Phillips is out for the season.
Pociask brings the Cowboys back to the 80-man roster limit.
