We now have a better idea as to why the Dallas Cowboys and Anthony Spencer’s agent Jordan Woy recently broke off their contract talks. According to the National Football Post, Dallas wants to take a “wait and see” approach when it comes to Spencer since he’ll be moving from outside linebacker to defensive end in the Cowboys’ news 4-3 defense under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. The aforementioned Anthony Spencer signed his one-year, $10.63 million tender as a “franchise” player last month and, after some talks between Dallas officials and agent Jordan Woy, the negotiations on a long-term extension to that deal broke off. One reason: The Cowboys want to see how Spencer — who had 11 sacks in 2012, the first double-digit sack season of his six-year career – responds to playing left end in the 4-3. There are still five seasons, counting this year, on the seven-year, $78 million extension that Ware signed in 2009, so there’s not much the Cowboys can do about that. Make no mistake, all parties remain cordial, but there’s definitely a “wait and see” approach with Spencer, a player whom the Cowboys internally debated about the “franchise” tag before applying it. The other element is that Spencer has unwittingly been affected to some extent by the blunted market for pass-rushers that has evolved this offseason. This makes plenty of sense since Spencer was an average player before his breakout season in 2012. Need NFL Tickets?
