Broncos Head Coach John Fox has yet to sign a free agent who played under him in Carolina.  That may change this evening.

Former Carolina Panthers tight end Dante Rosario is scheduled to meet with the team Sunday night, reports Mike Klis of the Denver Post.  Rosario is an athletic receiver at tight end and was drafted by Fox in 2007. 

Rosario appeared in all sixteen games last season and was the second tight end on Carolina’s depth chart.  A former Oregon Duck, Rosario is a twenty-six years old 6-4, 250 pound prospect. 

If he were to sign with Denver, Rosario he would join Virgil Green, Dan Gronkowski, Richard Quinn and Julius Thomas as the fifth tight end on the roster.  Rosario would provide a veteran presence to the group and compete for a special team’s position.

From 2007-2010, Rosario caught 82 passes for 894 yards and five scores.  Dante also recorded 13 special team’s tackles during that same time period.
