and we have a great shot at being up there in the i Cowboys bring aboard Bucky By DENNEH FREEMAN AP Sports Writer IRVING Texas AP Righthanded quar terback Bucky Richardson once beat the Dal las Cowboys with a lefthanded pass That knack for versatility and good instincls are what the Cowboys now want from Richardson Not as a quarterback though Dallas invited the former Houston Oiler and Texas star to try out for the team because coaches envision Richardson as a special teams stand out and possible backup fullback We consider Bucky a multipurpose Cowboys scouting director Larry Lacewell said We think he can do a lot of different things within our offense We know hes a special teams player from all the times weve played against Richardson whose wronghanded toss came during a gamewinning drive against the Cow boys in a 1992 preseason game was drafted by Houston to be a multipleposition player The Richardson worked his way into the quarterback rotation and even started a few games last year including once against the Cowboys only to be cut earlier this summer The New England Patriots had Richardson in camp for a few weeks as a special teamer then released him last week Coach Bill Par cells said at the time that the move was done in hopes of restructuring Richardsons contract Whatever the reason Richardson instead will get a oneyear contract for the minimum from the Cowboys Hell be in uni form for Saturdays preseason finale against the Oilers in San Antonio I need to go have a good week and just make it Richardson said Should Richardson fit in the Dallas career of David Lang could be over quickly The for mer Ram was brought in to fill in the same roles Richardson is now being groomed to play Also Tuesday the Cowboys cut 17 play ers to get their roster down to 60 One name that remained on the 53man roster was offensive lineman Derek Kennard who limped off the practice field and retired one day alter signing earlier this summer Houston waives receiver Wellman HOUSTON AP The Houston Oilers have taken another step away from iheir run andshoot days by cutting veteran wide receiv er Gary Wellman Wellman was the most notable of 12 players waived Tuesday as the Oilers trimmed their ros ter to 63 The league gave Houston permis sion to carry three extra players because their exhibition game last Saturday was canceled Wellman a 5fool9 173pounder from Southern California had been with the Oilers since being a fifthround pick in 1991 Although slightly undersized Wellmans good hands and solid work ethic enabled him to move up from the practice squad to a brief starting job He was on the practice team all of 1991 then made the roster in 1992 Wellman saw only mopup action that year and didnt com pile any stats In 1993 Wellman started three games He finished his Oiler career with 41 receptions for 542 yards This is a difficult time for us as always when you have to let guys Houston coach Fisher said Its tough when you have to let veteran wide receivers go like Gary Fisher said he was glad to have kept the exlra three players because of the missed exhi bition game against the San Diego Chargers Il was wiped out when the Astrodome field was judged unplayable I think that was fair on behalf of the league considering what happened last Fisher said We missed an opportunity to look at a lot of players and now we dont have a lot of practice time and we have to look NB Track Club caps banner season From submitted reports The New Braunfels Track Club put the finishing touches on a banner summer season that culminated with
