Found March 06, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports that the Cowboys haven’t approached DE Anthony Spencer‘s agent about any trade possibilities so far. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Tuesday night that although the Dallas Cowboys would like to have Anthony Spencer on their roster next season, they’re willing to consider a trade given the limited number of pass rushers in this year’s free agent market. Watkins adds that Spencer could be targeting an average salary of $8 million annually. If true, it would be hard for them to fit that kind of contract into their current cap situation. Spencer, 29, is coming off a career-high 11 sack season and wound up making the Pro Bowl for the first time.

Franchising Spencer: Strategy or Stupidity?

Raise your hand if you rolled your eyes when the Cowboys slapped the franchise tag on Anthony Spencer. After reading comments and a few articles on this move, it looks like Cowboy Nation is 50/50 with it, maybe less. Let’s be frank about this, why would we franchise an average player who had one good season (contract year) and has admittedly taken plays off in previous seasons...

Dallas Cowboys have released safety Gerald Sensabaugh, but I ain’t scared

Your Dallas Cowboys have released safety Gerald Sensabaugh in a salary cap-clearing move. They subsequently slapped the franchise tag on outside linebacker and soon-to-be defensive end Anthony Spencer. Keeping Spencer, who is coming off a stellar 2012 campaign, may prove to be a good move. But creating a bigger void at the the team’s most chronically troubling position may not...

Cowboys help draft by keeping Spencer

In perfect "Dewey defeats Truman" fashion, I spent time yesterday on the idea that the Cowboys were letting Anthony Spencer walk. Instead, the Cowboys pulled another fast one on most of us by deciding at the 11th hour to franchise a guy who needs to stay with this defense moving forward. I am quite happy to have been wrong on this one. Even for those of us who consider...

Cowboys, Dan Connor working on a new contract

Acording to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys and linebacker Dan Connor are working on a new contract that would keep him around. This off-season, management had asked Connor, a reserve linebacker, to take a pay cut so the Cowboys could clear room under the NFL’s $123 million salary cap. Connor’s 2013 cap number is $4.35 million and his base salary is $3 million...

Cowboys cut Gerald Sensabaugh, clear more cap space's Ian Rapoport reports that the Dallas Cowboys have released Gerald Sensabaugh, and later Sensabaugh himself confirmed the release via Twitter. He was scheduled to make $3 million in 2013, and his salary was to become fully guaranteed on March 12th if he stayed with the team. The Cowboys' move will reportedly save about $1.4 million against the cap. Sensabaugh...
