The Dallas Cowboys have a month from Saturday to get a long-term deal with defensive end Anthony Spencer worked out but, as of late, there’s been no apparent progress between the two sides. Spencer himself has more or less taken removed himself from the process, opting to focus on preparing for camp.
"I told (my agent, Jordan Woy) to contact me when they get it done," Spencer said this week, per ESPN Dallas. "He talked to me about the numbers, but we're just not on the same page right now. If we get close, we can get it done. If not, we won't. I'm not too worried about it."
Of course, if Dallas can’t come to terms on a long-term deal with Spencer by that July 15 deadline, Spencer will play under the franchise tag for the second straight year. Given that means he’ll make $10.6 million in 2013, it’s understandable that he doesn;t seem to mind the idea all that much.
"I have no other choice," Spencer said. "I'm going to play it out and see what happens next year."
