The move to get Vickers doesn’t mean the team is giving up on James Casey at the fullback spot, but Vickers helped Peyton Hillis go over 1000 yards rushing a season ago for a team that won just 5 games in 2010.
Vickers lives in Houston. John McClain reports he’ll get $3 million for two years with a $500,000 signing bonus. He told McClain he will be a versatile piece in the offense.
“I’m not just a lead blocker,” he said. “I can run and I can catch. Vonta is Vonta. I’m not Vonta. I’m me. I bring a whole new dimension back there.”
