He may not be a good value considering how much we are paying Ware.
And eventually time may tell that it was the correct decision to let him walk.
But it won't be because we couldn't afford him, it will be because we chose to go in another direction.
Adam has already alluded to the cap not being an issue this offseason, despite all the reports out there, so if we don't resign Spencer, it was a choice, not our hand being forced.
Adam listed Spencer as a cut so yeah, I expect that he would not be a problem.
I think it comes down to this. We can't sign Spencer and extend Romo. That's not going to happen so I guess you probably have to pick one or the other. In Adam's breakdown, he did not include Romo's extension so far as I can tell. I think you have to look at it and ask yourself if you would want to pay 11 Million for a Run Stopping DE in a 43 or not. Somebody who is running a 34 is going to be willing to pay him to play OLB IMO. I guess We'll see.
