The Dallas Cowboys have a fullback again.
After going through the first 13 weeks without the services of a fullback, the team signed journeyman Tyler Clutts on Tuesday after working him out at Valley Ranch, per the Dallas Morning News. Clutts was one of five running backs auditioning.
To accommodate Clutts’s signing, the Cowboys sent injured running back Lance Dunbar to the injured reserve. Dunbar had season-ending surgery on his left knee on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old Clutts is a Fresno State product, and has played for four NFL teams: the Browns, Bears, Texans and Dolphins. He has also played for the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos, the AFL’s Utah Blaze and the UFL’s Sacramento Mountain Lions.
