The Cowboys signed S Eric Frampton on Tuesday. Frampton was one of five safeties who tried out for the Cowboys.
Dallas needed to add depth after losing Barry Church for the season to a torn Achilles tendon. S Gerald Sensabaugh injured his calf against Seattle in Week Two.
Frampton played the last five seasons with the Vikings, mainly as a special-teams contributor. He played in every game last season and made 20 tackles on defense.
