He got 4 years and 19 million with 6m in SB.
As mentioned above Wimbley was the shiner option and even he signed for 7m per year average. He got 9m in SB but has cap hits of only 4.3 then 5.8 the first two years.
We are looking at 12.5 or more in cap hits for Spencer this year and next even if he does sign a reasonable deal in the off-season.
Spencer is a quality player but he isn't as rare as local media likes to make out. You can find run stuffers in this league. It is the Demarcus Wares and Jay Ratliff's you have to pay big money to.
We're not always on the same page JT but in this case, we are pretty much reading out of the same book.
I agree 100%
