    Anthony Spencer has mixed emotions over what will happen Monday afternoon.

    The outside linebacker wants to stay with the Cowboys. But he'd prefer to do so with a long-term contract rather than the franchise tag the club is expected to use to prevent him from hitting the open market.

    "It looks like they are going to put the tag on me,'' Spencer said. "That's a good thing and a bad thing.

    "It's good because it shows how much they think of me. But you don't want to be playing on a one-year contract. You want a longer deal and the security that gives your family.

    "But hey, I understand. It's a business.''

    The Cowboys have until 3 p.m. Monday to place the franchise tag on Spencer and freeze him from becoming an unrestricted free agent. Club officials decline to comment for the record, but indicate privately they are leaning toward the tag that guarantees Spencer will make $8.8 million in 2012...
