Cowboys cut FB Vickers, focus shifts to TE

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have released fullback Lawrence Vickers, not a surprising move considering their recent emphasis on an offense with two tight ends.

The move announced Friday came after Vickers had back surgery following the season and worked only on the side during offseason practices.

Dallas is unlikely to carry a fullback on the roster after loading up on tight ends behind Jason Witten. The Cowboys drafted Gavin Escobar in the second round and signed veteran Dante Rosario. Second-year player James Hanna is also in the mix.

The 30-year-old Vickers played in all 16 games in his only season in Dallas, finishing with three carries for 11 yards and 13 catches for 104 yards. He had two tackles on special teams.

He also played for Cleveland and Houston.
