Cowboys sign Eric Frampton

The Cowboys signed safety Eric Frampton on Wednesday. To make room for Frampton, Dallas waived/injured defensive tackle Robert Callaway.

Frampton appeared in 13 games with two starts last season for the Cowboys. For his career, he has played 89 games, including two starts, and recorded 25 tackles, two tackles for loss, three pass breakups and one forced fumble on defense, while adding 112 tackles on special teams. 

The team's safety positions are up for grabs. Barry Church, who is returning from the Achilles' he tore in Week 3 last season, has been running first team in the Cowboys' OTAs. Will Allen, signed in the off-season, and Matt Johnson, a fourth-round pick in 2012 who missed his rookie season with hamstring and back injuries, each have had first-team snaps at the other safety position. The Cowboys used a third-round pick on J.J. Wilcox, who also is expected to contend for playing time.

Are you serious?? Resigning Eric Frampton is D-U-M-B dumb. He was released for a reason...He sucked last year. Better they attempted to sign free agent OT Jared Gaither. He'd be an instant upgrade to Free and he can also play LT if Smith goes down. As it is Free is the only backup to Smith on the Roster.
