Giants worked out free agent FB Lawrence Vickers.

Vickers was released by the Cowboys two weeks ago. He underwent back surgery in April. Vickers would serve as insurance for Henry Hynoski (knee), who is questionable for Week 1. Now on the wrong side of 30, Vickers was merely ordinary as a lead blocker last season.

Cowboys released FB Lawrence Vickers.

Per the club's website, Vickers' departure could free up $1.2 million in salary-cap space. If healthy, Vickers could appeal to clubs looking for a lower-cost alternative to Vonta Leach. Vickers did not participate in the Cowboys' offseason workouts after back surgery in April.

ESPN Dallas says Cowboys FB Lawrence Vickers could be released this offseason.

Vickers is set to earn $1.2 million in 2013, the final year of a two-year pact. He played very sparingly in 2012, and there are much cheaper lead blocker options out there.

Cowboys signed FB Lawrence Vickers, formerly of the Texans.

This signing bodes poorly for restricted free agent Tony Fiammmetta's future in Dallas after the two sides were unable to reach agreement on a long-term deal early in the week. We believe the 29-year-old Vickers would be a slight downgrade on Fiammetta as a lead blocker if he does take over as the starter.

Free agent FB Lawrence Vickers is visiting the Cowboys on Wednesday.

It's somewhat surprising after Tony Fiammetta took the Cowboys' lead blocker role and ran with it last season, but Dallas might want insurance after an inner-ear infection sidelined Fiammetta for much of the second half.

Texans released FB Lawrence Vickers.

Signed to a two-year deal as Vonta Leach's replacement last August, Vickers had a bounce-back season after a down 2010, but performed nowhere near the level the Texans had become accustomed to with Leach. The Texans will continue to feature James Casey as their fullback moving forward.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak confirmed that the team is hosting FB Lawrence Vickers for a free agent visit on Tuesday.

Vickers is a substantial step down from Vonta Leach, but he's more of a true lead blocker than James Casey. The Texans shouldn't offer much guaranteed money.

According to free agent FB Lawrence Vickers, the Texans are in discussions with his player rep, Drew Rosenhaus.

The extent of discussions is unclear, but Vickers would presumably come at a lower cost than predecessor Vonta Leach. Vickers, 28, is coming off one of his worst seasons as a run blocker. Perhaps a scenery change would rejuvenate him.
