Cowboys sign safety Eric Frampton

The Cowboys signed safety Eric Frampton to take Barry Church's roster spot. Church was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after season-ending surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.
Church started the first three games of the season, with eight tackles and two passes defensed. He also had two special teams tackles.
Frampton, a fifth-round choice of the Raiders in 2007, has played in 76 career games, mostly on special teams. He has four tackles and one forced fumble. Besides the Raiders, Frampton also has played for Minnesota and Detroit.
The Cowboys worked out four others -- Dan Carey, Tyrone Culver, Antwaun Molden and Aaron Rouse -- on Tuesday before deciding on Frampton.
Danny McCray, the team's best special teams player, is expected to start in Church's spot. The Cowboys' other starting safety, Gerald Sensabaugh, missed last week's game with a calf injury. Cornerback Brandon Carr played safety in the nickel packages, with Mike Jenkins playing in Carr's spot at corner.
