The Cowboys are on a new quest to find their next kicker, and while Tristan Vizcaino is on the roster, special teams coordinator John Fassel has made it clear they’re still looking for anyone and everyone.

«We have Tristan on the roster. Anyone else on Earth who is not on the team right now is under consideration,» he said, via the Cowboys’ website. «That’s all really. I think we have a lot of different guys that we’re still looking for: XFL, USFL, veterans on the street, younger guys who haven’t found their way yet.»
