Cowboys Cut Holland for FB



    The Dallas Cowboys cut offensive guard Montrae Holland Sunday and picked up a fullback off of waivers.

    Holland, 31, was brought on to the team last year and was named the starter this year after the team let Leondard Davis go.

    The veteran had been day-to-day for weeks with a nagging neck injury, and when he was playing never really proved much anyway.

    With an open spot on the roster, the Cowboys picked up fullback Tony Fiammetta out of Carolina.

    The Cowboys released all four fullbacks that were on their roster on Saturday, including Chris Gronkowski who was picked up by the Colts on Sunday.

    Josh Ellis with said the team plans to fill Holland's void with Derrick Dockery, an 8-year veteran who has spent most of his NFL career with the Redskins.  Dockery is expected to have a deal signed and be at practice on Monday.
