The Dallas Cowboys’ final 53-man roster is in for the 2013 season. As with most teams, there were some surprises out of Big D. Most notably, the team decided to keep five tight ends on the roster—one more than the cornerbacks they retained. They had some flexibility since they don’t have a fullback on the roster, but Dallas also kept four true tailbacks.

Nonetheless, it was clear the Cowboys decided to retain depth at the positions they deem their weakest. That’s most obvious at safety, where they shockingly kept six players. The same goes for defensive tackle; with Jay Ratliff on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, the Cowboys kept five tackles on the roster.

Let’s break down some of the individual surprises and snubs.
