Cowboys Executive VP Stephen Jones on contract talks with Anthony Spencer: ‘We’ll be moving forward in a quick way’ By Rainer Sabin / Reporter rsabin@dallasnews.com 3:36 pm on February 12, 2013 | Permalink

Last month, Anthony Spencer’s representative said the Cowboys’ free agent outside linebacker would “love to stay in Dallas.”

That would be his “first choice,” agent Jordan Woy added.

The Cowboys would like for him to remain with the club, too, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

“We’re always in the business of keeping great football players,” Jones said Tuesday. “And he is one of those.”

In 2012, Spencer, a sixth-year veteran, had his most productive season after being pegged with an $8.8 million franchise tag last March.

Spencer led the team in tackles with 95 and accumulated a career-high total of 11 sacks. His performance was rewarded with an invitation to participate in his first Pro Bowl last month and he is expected to be one of the most coveted defenders on the open market.

Spencer’s situation is complicated by the fact that he would likely be re-positioned at end in the Cowboys’ 4-3 scheme that will be implemented under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. It’s a move that Woy said Spencer would embrace. But while there appears to be a desire on both sides to work out a deal, Jones said it’s too early to tell if one will be completed.

“Unfortunately you’ve got to make difficult decisions,” Jones said. “What that will entail we don’t know quite yet. We’ll be moving forward in a quick way. But obviously Anthony Spencer represents everything we want to be about. He plays hard. His leadership is tremendous. And then on top of that, he’s a great football player.”

Re: Players that have been released that will fit in the 3-4 


The guys on NFL Radio feel he will be released and they said New Orleans is the likely spot for him.  Especially being Ryan, his old DC, is now there.

Loomis has some magic to work over the next three weeks.  The Saints are $20 million over the cap with a roster of about 45 active guys.

Pretty sad to be that much over considering that the contracts of Ellis, Casillas, Bushrod, McBride, Henderson and Humber are not on the books.

Every year Loomis somehow pulls a rabbit out of his hat...so I'm guessing he'll find a way to magically make it happen again...but 20 million over is quite alot....ohlord

Re: Defensive Players that are available 


I will say that several teams are in the same boat as many of these current deals were worked when the Salary Cap was $132 million.  Most people thought with the normal escalation that the Cap would be around $135 million for 2013.

Now the Saints would have still been $5 million over, but nothing that could not be easily reworked. 

Then the New CBA happened and that left the Salary Cap at $120 million, it only went up $400,000 this year.

That is why you are seeing a lot of players being released.  Just look at the number of Starting Left Tackles that are being cut because teams cannot afford to have 15-20 million in a QB and another 7-10 in a Left Tackle.

Gonna be interesting to see who we get as FA's this season...with Rob Ryan as our DC...I'm sure he has a few favorites in mind...just as Williams was able to bring in a few of his favorites...I'm sure Ryan will be harping to Loomis on who could make our 3-4 defense work better...JMO

Re: Defensive Players that are available 


I can hear Ryan now...whispering into Loomis ear...dis is da guy we need....


The New Orleans Saints defensive makeover is in full swing with the
signing of new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Ryan, the former Dallas Cowboys
defensive coordinator, will oversee the Saints’ defensive transition from a 4-3
to a 3-4 alignment. With Ryan as the new defensive coordinator it would only
make sense for him to bring in some players familiar with his coaching
style.

One player that could be a potential candidate to join Ryan with
the Saints is Cowboys linebacker, Anthony Spencer. Spencer is coming off a
career year with the Cowboys and reunion with Ryan could be beneficial for the
player and coach.

Spencer recorded career highs in tackles (95) and sacks
(11) last season under Ryan. However, Spencer is set to be a free agent this
off-season and after such a tremendous season he will be demanding a lucrative
contract. Last season Spencer made about $8.8 million with the Cowboys and if he
were to come to the Saints he could easily demand about $10 million a
year.

Re: Defensive Players that are available 


I don't see the market being $10 million for him.  I think those days are over except for QBs. 

Teams have 120 to spend.  They are not going to put 20 into a QB and then another 8 in a LT and 8 in an OLB.
