Cowboys sign two more: Guard Bernadeau, fullback Vickers

The Cowboys landed a top-ten free agent on Wednesday when cornerback Brandon Carr signed a five-year, $50.1 million contract to play in Dallas.

Jerry Jones’ club hasn’t stopped there.

The team announced Wednesday that fullback Lawrence Vickers has agreed to a two-year deal. Vickers figures to replace incumbent lead blocker Tony Fiammetta, who was not tendered as a restricted free agent.

A source also told ESPN Dallas’ Todd Archer that the Cowboys have agreed to a deal with interior offensive lineman Mackenzy Bernadeau. Bernadeau, primarily a guard, is 26 years old and will likely provide depth in Dallas.

    Can’t wait to see how these contracts are structured. $25 million signing bonus with minimum salaries throughout, how’s that for a way around the NFL sanctions?

    Crap.. I thought the Texans were gonna resign Vickers…
    Damn cowturds

    Very excited about the Vickers move!!! He is a bruising FB, just what they need!!! Carr, Vickers!!

    Vickers is being replaced by James Casey, much better option if you ask me.

    Vickers is a beast. He can run and catch. And block a little bit. Just ask Arian Foster!

    too bad we aren’t keeping fiametta. hope vickers is an upgrade… fiametta did an awesome job for us when he was in last year.

    They got better in the secondary and have Vickers paving the way for Demarco Murray in the running game while Romo coming off his best season. Watch out for the Boyz in blue!

    Great move…keep getting people who can block!!

  9. danielcp0303 says: Mar 14, 2012 5:14 PM

    I think the Cowboys front office is finally starting to get it. Garrett and Stephen Jones deserve a lot of credit

    I wonder if health reason are why the boys didnt tender Fiammetta? He was great when he was healthy ..anybody know?

  11. rajbais says: Mar 14, 2012 5:30 PM

    Dream Team 2.0???

    2008 all over again????

    Yep!!!

  12. Grulks says: Mar 14, 2012 5:30 PM

    i too am wondering why they didnt keep fiammetta, that guy was amazing!

  13. grhopper says: Mar 14, 2012 5:30 PM

    Another bad move…who is Vickers? They had a know quantity in Fiammetta, who was superb in blocking for Murray. And they sign another back up, cast-off guard. Why, they already have an abundance of them on the roster! Neither signing makes any sense. Here’s betting they don’t make it out of training camp.

    Vickers is a bruising fullback that can catch and block. You people are seriously delusional. Texans cut him because he couldn’t do much of anything. James Casey was a much more productive FB than this guy.

  15. isetheskyonfire says: Mar 14, 2012 5:32 PM

    @bangthedrum22 fiametta wanted top dollar and the cowboys went cheaper and probably better with vickers

  16. biglebronski says: Mar 14, 2012 5:41 PM

    DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones just got the best run blocking fullback in the game. Congrats, Cowboys.

    bye bye laurent robinson

    The Cowboys biggest problem has been they can’t overcome injuries at key positions because they lack depth.

    JJ likes to make a splash with big signings but never has foresight to back them up with solid reserve players.

    Bottom line is he makes to many wholesale changes every year and put all his eggs in one basket

    “Vickers is a bruising fullback that can catch and block. You people are seriously delusional. Texans cut him because he couldn’t do much of anything.”

    What the heck else do fullbacks do in the NFL *other* than catch and block?

    txndave,

    awwwww. Are we a little bitter over losing your starting FB to big brother?

  21. imaduffer says: Mar 14, 2012 6:24 PM

    Now, if they could just find a QB.

  22. allopez5 says: Mar 14, 2012 6:25 PM

    Vickers has hands of stone…

    He wanted too much money . . . also Garrett wanted a pure blocking FB ala Moose Johnston

    how many times will the cowboys sign a player and someone comment ” now sign a qb” that joke was funny two days after never… nixe signings ppl who are upset by solid role players?? not every1 need to be an 99 in madden for them to be good players in real life

  25. alpha1male says: Mar 14, 2012 7:04 PM

    WTF? Are the Texans going to re-sign ANY of their own players?

  26. alpha1male says: Mar 14, 2012 7:07 PM

    DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones just got the best run blocking fullback in the game. Congrats, Cowboys.

    Uhhhh, that would be the FB the Texans walk in FA last year. Vonta Leach!

  27. storebrandcookies says: Mar 14, 2012 8:12 PM

    A great day for the Cowboys. You fill a huge need in cornerback by signing Carr. Get Orton who I think is pretty underrated. Get guard depth and get a bruising fullback, a position they have lacked since the “Moose” Johnston days!

  28. gmemm says: Mar 14, 2012 8:24 PM

    The point is that we are improving our team period

  29. gmemm says: Mar 14, 2012 8:32 PM

    Next step improve our DE’S WHICH will improve our pass rush

  30. tonyromoisterrible says: Mar 14, 2012 8:40 PM

    I love how cowgirl fans refer to the moves jerrah makes as “we” (gmemm says:

    The point is that we are improving our team period). When was anyone who is posting on PFT in on these meetings and negotiations? Further proving that cowgirl fans are reterds (for those who want to say I spelled retard wrong I did it on purpose).

    Last I saw Carolina’s o-line wasn’t that great.
