    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.

    you take into consideration who the player is. The top LDE's still command more than OLBs. And with Spencers '12 yr you can bet he's going to be put into that category by his agent. And im sure he'll get soemthing a little lower than what he asks. Its still going to be between 55-60 mil. Thats too much for Dallas

    I think the average salary for a 4-3 DE is more than the average for a 3-4 OLB.

    No one will want to hear this, but I would expect Spencer to be more effective than Ware at DE in the 4-3. I would love to see what Spencer can do when he's 1-1 with the OT every play.

    Ware is a great speed rusher, but I have serious concerns about his ability to hold up to all the contact with 300-330 OTs...the power game has not been his strength, and most effective DEs in his weight range have been stockier.

    On the weakside There is not a TE. Now they might pull someone to take him on or send the F-back his waybut he saw plenty of LOT trying to block him.

    And then, maybe the Cowboys were playing him out of position for all these years.

    Not sure if Spears will be back but I do think he could be a much better player in the 4-3. It will be interesting on how Kiffin evacuates the players currently on defense.

    LOL, this thread is funny.

    Anthony Spencer IS a defensive end. He was never a linebacker. Same with Demarcus Ware.

    This scheme will actually let him play what he played in college.

    In fact, Ware and Spencer could be one of the most dynamic DE tandems in the league.

    Anybody who might be thinking that Spencer is going to be better in a 43 then Ware is, well, I guess I just don't see it.

    reflexes like Ware has are about once a generation. It doesn't matter what scheme you play him in. He's going to be better then anybody else playing with him. That's just how it works.
