Cowboys Claim Colts Center Matt Tarullo

The Dallas Cowboys are trying to add depth at center by claiming Matt Tarullo off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts, Todd Archer reports.

The Cowboys connected with a familiar face Friday, claiming center Matt Tarullo off waivers from Indianapolis. Originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse, Tarullo spent the 2005 season on the Cowboys’ practice squad and had a six-week spell there in 2006 after failing to make the team out of training camp.

Inexperienced at center behind starter Andre Gurode with Cory Procter, Joe Berger and rookie Steve Rissler, Tarullo gives the Cowboys another option along the offensive line entering training camp in late July.

With Tarullo, the Cowboys have 87 players on the roster and can take only 85 to training camp. Once draft picks begin to sign, they will have to release two players.

I wouldn’t hold out much hope for a guy who is getting cut before camp even starts making the roster, much less being a major contributor. Still, it makes sense to, as Big Bill used to put it, “churn the bottom of the roster” in hopes of getting a little better.
