Starters -- Jason Witten, Anthony Fasano. Backups -- Brett Pierce, Tony Curtis, Ryan Hannam, Sean Ryan, Lousaka Polite.
The Cowboys already know what they have with starter Jason Witten- one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league.
Witten, who was recently signed to a seven-year, $29 million deal, will be a Dallas Cowboy for a long time and will also likely add to his two Pro Bowl appearances in the coming seasons.
But the Cowboys also like what they have in rookie tight end Anthony Fasano.
In what was somewhat of a surprise announcement, owner Jerry Jones told the media after the first day of the 2006 NFL Draft that the team was going to more of a two tight end one-back offensive set this season.
To that end, the team drafted Fasano in the second round and the former Notre Dame standout is expected to start opposite the Pro Bowler Witten.
"I love the two-tight end offense -- I think it's a great idea," Fasano said. "I'm excited that they brought me in to be a part of it. I just want to come in, learn from Jason Witten and earn my role in the offense.
"The two-tight end offense creates mismatches -- that's the biggest thing. It gives you a lot of versatility in what you can do."
Also figuring into the mix will be free agent signing Ryan Hannam, who can play H-back and fullback.
Hannam figures to step in for blocking specialist Dan Campbell, who left the Cowboys in free agency this offseason.
The move to a two tight end, one-back set also means that the fullback position has all but been eliminated from offense.
Fullback Lousaka Polite is practicing at tight end and tailback in hopes of retaining his spot on the roster.
