Cowboys Claim Fullback Tony Fiammetta

The Cowboys have made at least one successful waiver claim on Sunday, a day after NFL teams cut their rosters to 53. According to fullback Tony Fiammetta’s agent, the Cowboys had the successful claim on him, after the Panthers surprisingly cut him Saturday.

The move will be accompanied by another release, as will any other successful claim, but neither move has been officially announced. Earlier in the day, the Cowboys released guard Montrae Holland after upgrading (in their mind) to Derrick Dockery for their reserve guard.

As noted on ESPN.com, Fiammetta has not been on good terms with coaches in Carolina.

The Panthers waived fullback Tony Fiammetta, their starter last season and the man who had the misfortune to replace fan favorite Brad Hoover. Fiammetta didn’t do a lot to endear himself to the old coaching staff and that didn’t change after Ron Rivera took over.

The Cowboys had gone with no fullback on their initial roster, but Jason Garrett’s running game operates well with a lead blocker. It appears that Fiammetta may handle that role.
