The Dallas Cowboys announced their final cuts on Saturday and former UCONN Huskies fullback Deon Anderson has made the team. Anderson is second on the Cowboys depth chart at fullback and will primarily play on special teams for the Cowboys.

Anderson was drafted in the 6th round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. Anderson was a special teams standout for the Huskies and was named their team MVP for the 2006 season.

Anderson joins former Huskies Dan Orlovsky (Lions) and Alfred Fincher (Saints) as the only Huskies to make 2007 rosters. Orlovsky will be the backup QB in Detroit while Fincher is listed second on the depth chart at strong-side linebacker.

Tyler King didn’t survive the final round of cuts in Jacksonville.
