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.

The best fullback in football, Vonta Leach, remains on the free-agent market. But he's expected to land with the Miami Dolphins or New York Giants.

It's hard out there for a fullback.
