It is now fair to wonder what the Dallas Cowboys will do at the fullback position. Today, they announced the decision to release last year’s starter Lawrence Vickers,who played just one season with the team, which leaves them with no fullback on the roster.
The move saves the Cowboys $1.2 million in cap space, which has been their ultimate goal all offseason.
Vickers became expendable whenever the Dallas Cowboys selected Gavin Escobar in the second-round and decided that they would be running more two tight end sets in 2013.
If the team wants to look to add a fullback, Vonta Leach is the best available player on the market. However, the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins are considered the favorites to land the veteran’s services.
The Cowboys could decide to enter the season with no fullback and simply play Escobar or Witten in an H-back role, so we will have to wait and see what their ultimate decision is.
Personally, the Cowboys would be better off going without a fullback and allowing DeMarco Murray the entire backfield to use his vision.
