But I can't agree with you on Spencer. You have to be very careful who you hand these big veteran free agent contracts to. A guy like Spencer just doesn't warrant it. We need to stop with this comfort level with mediocrity. The known because safer and more appealing than the unknown. There is life after Spencer. The fact that our next starting OLB could be worse is no valid reason to extend him.
I guess where we disagre is on what type of deal Spencer will get. I think if he signs a 5 year deal, we can get him closer to 7-7.5 per with the flexibility to cut him if his play drops.
