Cowboys grab Irish TE

IRVING, Texas- Cowboys fans get ready for a new look offense next season. GM and owner Jerry Jones said he wants the Cowboys to switch to a two-tight end, two-receiver, one-back offensive scheme next season, thus the team's selection of Notre Dame tight end Anthony Fasano.

Fasano gives the Cowboys some depth at the tight end position in order to implement the new system.

So expect the fullback to be phased out through next season and the Cowboys to line up with their one-back system. The reason? Defenses have tougher times anticipating what offenses will do whether on first, second or third down with the same lineup in the game.

The Cowboys have a year-old 3-4 defense, so why not start a new offense?
