Chiaverini spent one season with the Cowboys after a two-year stint with the Cleveland Browns. He registered 10 catches for 107 yards and two touchdowns last season playing in a key reserve role.
After the Cowboys drafted WR Antonio Bryant this past April, it was clear that some of last year's wide outs would likely be released. Chiaverini happens to be the first.
Ben Fricke, along with rookie free-agent running back Josh Ranek from South Dakota State, were also released. Niether move came as a surprise, as Ranek was really a long shot to make the team, and Fricke was somewhat expendable due to the performance of 2nd round draft pick Andre Gurode.
Fricke spent three seasons with the Cowboys, playing in 16 games, including five starts. He provided some much needed depth at both the guard and center positions along the offensive line.
Ranek was signed as a rookie free agent while Fricke was orginally drafted out of Houston.
