Cowboys Sign Kicker, DT To Reserve/Future List


FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys have made two additions to their Reserve/Future list, signing kicker Tristan Vizcaino and defensive tackle Justin Hamilton.

Vizcaino tried out twice for the Cowboys in December as a potential replacement for Brett Maher. They ultimately released Maher after a 31-24 loss to the Bears – which featured Maher's 10th field goal miss of the season – and signed veteran Kai Forbath for the final three games of the season.

Vizcaino has not kicked in a regular-season game, but he has spent offseason time with the Bengals and Jets since finishing his career at the University of Washington in 2018.

Signing Vizcaino doesn't preclude the Cowboys from creating competition at kicker at some point this offseason. Forbath did an excellent job in three games for Dallas: a perfect 10 of 10 on field goals and 10 of 10 on extra points. He's eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in March.

The Cowboys originally signed Hamilton for depth on Oct. 16 after Tyrone Crawford (hip) was placed on injured reserve. The club waived Hamilton Oct. 25 to make room for defensive lineman Michael Bennett in the trade-deadline deal with New England.

The Cowboys' Reserve/Future signings include:

K Tristan Vizcaino
DT Justin Hamilton
RB Jordan Chunn
C Marcus Henry
TE Cole Hikutini
WR Tevin Jones
DB D.J. White
DE Daniel Wise
QB Clayton Thorson
