FRISCO (105.3 THE FAN) – Dallas Cowboys backup running back Lance Dunbar is leaving via free agency to the LA Rams, who according to Adam Caplan of ESPN are giving him a one-year deal worth up to $3 million.

Dunbar, a product of the University of North Texas, was signed in 2012 as an undrafted free agent by the Cowboys, who envisioned him as a dangerous scatback in their offense. But injuries plagued him during his time in Dallas, and in his five seasons, the 27-year-old managed a total of only 422 rushing yards, 646 receiving yards, and one TD.

Dallas has Ezekiel Elliott as its No. 2 running back. Alfred Morris is on the roster. Darren McFadden is unsigned but could return to the Cowboys in a Dunbar-like role.
