IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have released safety
Michael Hamlin, creating a spot on their 53-man roster.
Hamlin, a fifth-round pick in 2009, played six games last season
and in two games this season, almost always on special teams.
The roster spot could go to a fullback or a tight end.
Dallas' only fullback, Chris Gronkowski, missed the last game
with an injury, with backup tight end Scott Chandler filling in
instead. Second-string tight end Martellus Bennett also is nursing
an ankle injury.
