Cowboys waive Vickers, save $1.2 million
The Dallas Cowboys waived fullback Lawrence Vickers on Friday.
Waiving Vickers saves the Cowboys $1.2 million against the salary cap. The Cowboys now have approximately $10 million in cap space.
Vickers, who underwent back surgery in April, became expendable because the Cowboys plan to operate out of two-tight end sets as their base offense. Dallas, which drafted tight end Gavin Escobar in the second round to complement Pro Bowler Jason Witten, will not have a fullback on its roster.
The 30-year-old Vickers played one season in Dallas, catching 13 passes for 104 yards while primarily serving as a lead blocker for an offense that ranked 31st in the league in rushing.
