    BS, you don't get 11 sacks and as many pressures as he does every year and not be good against tackles.

    EDIT: BTW, I sure wish Bowen was still on the team but team felt it unnecessary to keep him. As long as the money isn't outlandish I'd like to see us pay to keep him.

    omg. DE get paid in the 4-3. A 3-4 OLB gets much less money.

    We are not talking about pay cuts here.

    Thats exactly the point and thats why Spencer will be a good DE. Spencers strenght is to play the run but still be able to make preassure on the Qb.

    To be able to play the run as an 4-3 DE is what makes you a great one. Just look at Mario Williams. He is a good rusher but they pay him the big bucks because he is also a force against the run where others at his position falter.

    Being able to also play the run as a 4-3 DE makes the difference. Not to be a great pass rusher and a so lala run stopper.

    Time to face the reality of the situation.....

    Spencer had a great year, his best yet, but he is to old for the Cowboys to invest the money he is gonna get elsewhere. Yes SPENCER will get paid and handsomely....But the Cowboys cant break the bank for players who are on there downside of the career.

    Are you? Why do people ask other people to sacrifice their livelihoods?

    It'd be great to see them work something out that is good for both parties. Spenser can play football and I think he stepped up this year in the leadership role. I'd love to see him back and hope his position isnt crazy when it come to compensation.

    James Harrison got a 6 year $8m AAV deal in 2008. Lamar Woodley two years later got another 6 year deal with a $10m AAV.

    It's the 4-3 OLB that don't get paid.

    This is just not true. Year before last he started taking better angles against the tackles. The way he was coming off the ball made it too easy for the OT to push him wide. With the adjustment last year he started doing much better and broke through this year

    He's going to bank this offseason. I don't think it will be with us.

    True. But what has this to do with my post ? I never said anything different.

    I compared the payment of 4-3 DE to the payment of 3-4 OLBs. And the later wont get the money the DEs get.

    Julius Peppers got a huge $15m AAV contract but Demarcus Ware got a 13m AAV contract 4 years before that. Given inflation and the like that's not a huge difference. If you are a top pass rusher it doesn't matter which front you play.

    Both are HoFers and get paid like it.

    In comparison Allen got a $12m AAV deal. It will be interesting to see what Miller, Smith and Matthew make over the next few years.

    Sure would. I'd be playing for my favorite team and me staying to help the Cowboys win the SB would be worth it.

    ..your comment..really doesn't make a lot of sense.

    ..Spencer came from Purdue as a DE as a #1 pick. Whre had a 4-3. I think he can play it. Let him bulk back up and I think you still have a guy playing either a 4-3 or 3-4. Same thing with Ware. He also came from a 4-3.

    This should be nothing but bonus for the new schemes.

    I really believe the Skins will make a serious run at him.

    I'm not sure of this. LDE in a 43 usually don't command as much as Rush Ends do in a 43. Same for OLBs in a 34 but I don't know how the two compare. Would be interesting to see which is payed more.

    I let Spencer walk and take that money and invest in two players (a starter and some depth). Spencer is 29 and we are moving to a 4-3, I'm willing to take the chance at 10M a year that he can play in Kiffin's 4-3.
