The Dallas Cowboys' summer-long quest to create more salary-cap room has claimed another victim.
The team announced Friday that they had released fullback Lawrence Vickers. That move saves $1.2 million in cap space.
Vickers, 30, played one season with the Cowboys, who are expected to rely more on two-tight end sets this season, lessening the need for a fullback. Vickers was the only fullback on the Cowboys' roster.
It's hard out there for a fullback.
Vickers' release leaves only eight fullbacks in the NFL who are due more than $1 million next season. Offensive evolution continues.â Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) July 12, 2013
