Cowboys Re-Sign DE Anthony Spencer



Spencer’s agent, Jordan Woy, has already confirmed that the Cowboy have re-signed his client, Anthony Spencer


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Cowboys have re-signed DE Anthony Spencer to a one-year contract.

  • Schefter adds that the Cowboys are hopeful that he’ll be able to be ready in time for training camp.
  • Spencer will receive a one-year contract worth a maximum value of $3.5 million, according to Schefter.

Spencer, 30, had a breakout season in 2012 while playing outside linebacker in Rob Ryan’s defense. He totaled 95 tackles, 11 sacks, two forced fumbles and a recovery that year. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 1 outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense in 2012.

Unfortunately for Spencer, he suffered a season-ending ACL injury, so there are going to be some obvious questions regarding his productivity moving forward. He found very little interest as a free agent this offseason, which means this will be an opportunity for him to rebuild his value before hitting the market again next year.

We had Spencer listed as the No. 2 in out available player in our Best Available Free Agents list.

When healthy, he was better than Ware. No, not the all pro Ware but the Ware of today.
