Could Anthony Spencer follow in Stephen Bowen’s footsteps as a big-name Cowboys’ defensive end who leaves Dallas for the rival Washington Redskins?
Per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, Spencer is scheduled to visit with the Redskins on Thursday.
In each of the past two seasons with the Cowboys, Spencer played under the franchise tag, with varying results. In 2012, he had a career year, posting 11 sacks and leading the Cowboys with 95 tackles.
2013 was far less kind to Spencer however, as he appeared in just one game, a Week Two loss to the Chiefs, and recorded two tackles before leaving the game and ultimately undergoing a season-ending operation to repair a microfracture in his left knee--which, actually, makes the Purdue product seem like someone the Redskins would pay a lot for in free agency.
Spencer was drafted by the Cowboys out of Purdue in the first round of the 2007 draft.
