The Cowboys released rookie tight end George Bryan, an undrafted player out of North Carolina State signed after the NFL draft. They claimed John Nalbone off waivers to take his place.
Nalbone, a fifth-round pick of the Dolphins in 2009, has spent time with six teams. He was on the Seahawks' practice squad last year.
He joins veterans Jason Witten and John Phillips, sixth-round pick James Hanna and undrafted Andrew Szczerba as tight ends on the roster.
Bryan was the all-time leader for receptions by a tight end at NC State. He left the Wolfpack with 126 catches for 1,323 yards and 17 touchdowns in 51 games.
