Giants Work Out FB Lawrence Vickers

Aaron Wilson reports that the New York Giants recently brought in former Cowboys FB Lawrence Vickers for a workout. The Giants are clearly in the market for a fullback, which was evident from their interest in Vonta Leach, who just re-signed with the Ravens. Dallas released Vickers a few weeks ago, which was likely cap related seeing as he was set to make $1.2 million for the 2013...

Fullback Lawrence Vickers Cut By Dallas

Fullback Lawrence Vickers was released by the Dallas Cowboys.Fantasy Spin:Vickers was the fullback in front of Arian Foster in 2011 and Peyton Hillis before that. If healthy, he'll likely catch on somewhere and make that team's running back a better fantasy value, but he has no fantasy value himself.

Dallas Cowboys Tip Their Offensive Hand By Cutting Lawrence Vickers

Lawrence Vickers is looking for a new job after getting cut by Dallas, but the Cowboys offense may have found an identity in the process. With training camp right around the corner teams likely have a pretty good idea of what sort of offense they plan on running.

Cowboys cut Lawrence Vickers

The Dallas Cowboys had one fullback on their roster. Now they have zero. In a move that saves about $1.2 million on the salary cap, the Dallas Cowboys have cut Lawrence Vickers. This just shows how much fullbacks have come to be devalued in today’s NFL. And really, in a pass-happy league, unless your fullback can play tight end and catch the ball well, it makes sense that fullbacks...

Cowboys' Vickers a vanishing breed

Lawrence Vickers knows he is a rare breed. In prior decades, it would not be uncommon for an NFL team to carry two fullbacks. Now, some clubs such as the Detroit Lions don't have even one on their 53-man roster, as H-backs and sixth offensive linemen fill blocking roles. Vickers, though, has that job with the Dallas Cowboys because the franchise is committed to the position...

Offensive frustrations high for the Cowboys

Until further notice, the Cowboys main concern for their offense is to solve their issue in running the ball out of base-offense situations. That means, with a QB under center, can they run the ball on 1st and 10 and 2nd and 5-9 to a point where they are not "falling behind the chains" as the coach likes to say. It is vital to figure this issue out, and since so many of...

Lawrence Vickers grew up watching Dallas Cowboys games with his father, so it was special for both of them when the veteran fullback signed a free-agent deal with the team during the offseason. But Lawrence Vickers Sr., a lifetime Cowboys fan, never got to see his son play with a star on his helmet. He died of lung cancer in early May. The younger Vickers, now in training camp...

In 2011, the Texans’ defense was a revelation but their offense was still solid as usual.
