Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones has said that when contract talks with Anthony Spencer finally do begin, they’ll move fast. If he’s right in his assessment, we can expect to hear some news concerning Spencer in the relatively near future.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the team will meet with Jordan Woy, the agent representing the Indiana native, while in Indianapolis over the weekend for the NFL Scouting Combine.
Spencer is coming off his first career Pro Bowl season, in which he recorded 95 tackles, 11 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. He did this while playing under the franchise tag, but will be looking to work out a long-term deal (along Woy, of course) this offseason.
If the aforementioned Jones represents the Cowboys brass as a whole, it’s clear that the team wants to keep Spencer around awhile.
“Anthony Spencer represents everything we want to be about,” Jones said, via the Morning News. “He plays hard. His leadership is tremendous. And then on top of that, he’s a great football player. He obviously got to play in the Pro Bowl this year. Well-deserved. I think he had his most productive year since he’s been in the NFL and been a Cowboy. All that speaks well for Anthony and we certainly are in the business of keeping good football player.”
