    Irving -- The Dallas Cowboys move to tight end-focused offense was made complete Friday with the release of fullback Lawrence Vickers.

    The move saved the Cowboys $1.2 million, Vickers’ salary next season.

    It was also not surprising. Vickers had been on the roster bubble since the draft in April when the Cowboys drafted tight end Gavin Escobar in the second round and promised to move to a two-tight end attack with Pro Bowler Jason Witten.

    The team will likely use the H-back in their blocking scheme as the Cowboys also have veteran tight ends James Hanna and Dante Rosario on the roster.
