Teams have less than a week to signed franchised players to longterm extensions, but the Dallas Cowboys aren’t feeling much pressure at the moment--this because they reportedly have no plans to extend franchised OLB Anthony Spencer.
Spencer signed the tender offer back in April in hopes that a longterm deal could be struck before the season. However, Josh Ellis of DallasCowboys.com reported on Monday that there’s been no talk of making such a deal at Valley Ranch, that the team appears poised to let the July 16 deadline pass and let Spencer play out the year under the tag.
Once said deadline passes, Dallas will not be able to negotiate with Spencer’s camp until after the 2012 season.
A 2007 first round pick out of Purdue, Spencer started all 16 games in 2011, recording 66 tackles, six sacks (to equal his career high) and four forced fumbles.
