Cowboys outside linebacker Anthony Spencer spent his career at Purdue playing defensive end and with Dallas set to move from the 3-4 to the 4-3, it appears that he could soon return to that position on a full-time basis. Spencer’s agent, Jordan Woy, says that his client is open to the idea.
"He can play either," Woy said, per ESPN Dallas. "They played a 4-3 for some of the snaps this past season."
Spencer, who is coming a career year and his first double-digit sack season, is set to become a free agent in March, leaving the Cowboys with a decision to make. Spencer was franchised in 2012 and could be franchised again in 2013.
However, coming off the kind of season Spencer just had, they may want to give some serious thought to rewarding him with a long-term deal.
