Bears get TE Rosario from Cowboys
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears have acquired tight end Dante Rosario from the Dallas Cowboys for a seventh-round pick in next year’s draft.
Dallas picked up Rosario during the offseason, and he was among five tight ends on the team’s original 53-man roster.
Rosario is entering his seventh season and could be playing for his fourth team since the start of 2011. He has 99 catches for 1,106 yards and eight touchdowns in 91 career games. The 28-year-old, a former fifth-round pick by Carolina, has started 26 times.
To make room for Rosario, the Bears waived tight end Kyle Adams on Monday.
Raiders mum on starting quarterback situation
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders are gradually solidifying their starting lineup for the season opener. They aren’t quite ready to announce their starting quarterback.
Coach Dennis Allen said Monday that he will not disclose whether Terrelle Pryor or Matt Flynn will start the season opener at Indianapolis until game time for “competitive” reasons.
Allen has said the starter will be the quarterback who is best able to move the team and score points. In the preseason, that clearly was Pryor.
