Seahawks Hosting DE Anthony Spencer For A Visit

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Seattle Seahawks are hosting free agent DE Anthony Spencer for a visit in the coming days.

This comes just a few minutes after Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reported that the Seahawks are also hosting veteran DL Chris Canty for a visit on Thursday.

This is usually the point in free agency where the Seahawks begin kicking the tires on some potential under-priced veteran defensive linemen. Last year, they signed former Vikings DT Kevin Williams to a contract, so this could be something to keep an eye on for Seattle.

Last we heard regarding Spencer, he was drawing interest from several teams as of last week. However, there has been little buzz in recent days regarding his market, so it appears as though teams were waiting for things to settle down before approaching him a potential deal.

Spencer, 31, sustained a torn ACL in 2013 during the first game of the season. At the time, he was playing under the Cowboys’ franchise tag, which resulted in him accepting a one-year, prove-it contract with Dallas.

In 2014, Spencer appeared in 13 games and recorded 23 tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble, a recovery for a touchdown and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 21 defensive end in a 4-3 defense out of 59 qualifying players.
