    They were basing it more on them choosing 3 other TEs this preseason. Short body of work, I know, but info nonetheless. However, I just heard from a solid 'boys fan who said:
    I just may have had a knee jerk reaction to 'earlier reports'. lol

    Well I'm glad they are cycling through scrubland and trying to address needs. JA would have been getting another DE from the arena league that we didn't need nor could make the PS.

    Rosario is a nice TE, nothing great, can get open and will win matchups vs average LB's and Safety's, won't drop the ball if it hits him in the hand, won't fall down when he does catch it. He can't block well but between him and Maneri cycling through after Bennett it's not a big deal. Marginal upgrade over Adams, but for a conditional 7th rounder which could wind up being nothing(which is why the Cowboys traded him, a possible 7th is better than cutting him for nothing) he's just trying to improve the backend of the roster.

    Does this mean if he plays well we give up 7th round pick if plays bad we give up nothing? If that's true sounds good to me no skin to lose here.

    H-back, which is always something I desire in a third TE because of the dual depth he provides as a TE/FB.

    It's a stop-gap move for depth. I'll bet the TE problem will need to be addressed properly in next year's draft.

    The statement I bolded, if true, would have made him the Bears #1 TE last year.

    Yep, he's the "move" TE we lost when we cut ERod. Similar size and probably a better receiver than Adams. It's no surprise because we knew they were looking to another TE.

    I hope Kromer uses Rosario and Bennett in some 2-TE sets.
