Cowboys Prepared To Franchise OLB Anthony Spencer?

Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com tweets that he wouldn’t be surprised to see the Cowboys use their franchise tag on free agent LB Anthony Spencer.

Spencer is heads a pretty poor class of outside linebackers this year, unless you add Mario Williams to that category. The tag for linebackers will run the team $8.8 million this season which could cause some problems considering that they had to make a lot of moves to free up the limited cap space that they currently.
