The Cowboys have re-signed fullback Tyler Clutts, the team announced. Clutts joined the team late in 2013 and was the Cowboys' only fullback during the 2014 season.

Clutts will likely be Dallas' starting fullback again. Clutts caught his first NFL touchdown pass in the playoffs during Dallas' loss to the Packers.
