The future of Dallas Cowboys’ outside linebacker Anthony Spencer seems to be up in the air.
A first round pick out of Purdue back in 2007, Spencer has been good as a run-stopper in his five seasons with the team, but aside from a few flashes, he hasn’t come into his own as a pass rusher. He finished last season with six sacks, and has 21.5 for his career.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones believes that Spencer, an unrestricted free agent as of this March, has done well opposite a force like DeMarcus Ware--but he was predictably noncommittal about Spencer’s future with the team as the NFL’s free agent period approaches.
"He did some real good things," Jones said this week, per ESPN Dallas. "He's got a lot of expectations and we could expect a lot but he did some real good things out there for us. He certainly, for me I've seen him do things that were so impressive, let's have him on one side doing those extremely impressive things on every play and Ware of course on the other side doing impressive things. The issue is Ware is Ware."
