Also, it would be in Spencer's interest to get to FA and go to a 3-4 team. That's where I see him getting the most money.
If that was the case, then it's surprising that Spencer's agent would come out at this time of year (when ONLY the Cowboys can negotiate with him) and immediately state that Spencer could play DE and would be happy to do so.
This may not mean much, but my first reaction to this announcement by Woy is that Spencer would rather stay in Dallas than leave. This also means that he MIGHT be more willing to work a deal that Dallas can swallow.
He'll still get paid, but he might be willing to take less than top dollar inorder to stay here.
Maybe he just likes where he lives and doesn't feel like moving? Sounds that way to me, and thats a good thing for us.
