The Cowboys remained busy on Wednesday, signing FB Lawrence Vickers, who was released on Tuesday by the Texans. Terms of the deal were not announced.
Vickers played in 14 games for Houston a year ago but carried the ball only once. He was the lead blocker for Arian Foster, who made the Pro Bowl after rushing for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011.
The 28-year-old is expected to be Dallas' starting fullback next season.
