We devoted an earlier post to Anthony Spencer’s impending move from outside linebacker in a 3-4 system to defensive end in Monte Kiffin’s brand of the 4-3, and how some--like former Colts general manager Bill Polian--believe that the move will be a good thing for the Purdue product.
Of course, it’s important to remember that this move will happen only if the free agent-to-be opts to stay in Dallas but, according to Spencer’s agent Jordan Woy, a new deal between the Cowboys and his client is fairly likely. Woy told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via the Dallas Morning News, that as he sees it, “there’s a good chance” Dallas will re-sign Spencer.
This is good news from where we’re sitting.
Spencer posted a career-high 11 sacks in 2012--his first double-digit sack total--95 tackles and two forced fumbles while playing opposite DeMarcus Ware in a banged-up defense. He was rewarded with a trip to the Pro Bowl, where he contributed a pair of tackles to the NFC’s winning effort.
