    Ok -- supposedly Kiffin is bringing the Tampa 2 to Dallas.

    Is there ANY scenario where the Cowboys would pay Spencer the $10m/year that he'll be able to get on the open market, only to make him a converted 4-3 tweener 250lb DE?

    Would Spencer even want to make that transition? I'm not sure he would. He's played his entire professional career as a standup 3-4 LB.

    Thoughts?

    I say he is gone. Underappreciated dude if you ask me, but I think they either grab a DE in the draft or roll with Crawford on opening day.

    But why spend $10m/year on a 30 year older player who has played very little with his hand on the group in his career?

    Heck, I thought it was iffy he'd be back with the Cowboys sticking to a 3-4.

    Not neccisarily. In a Tampa two, him and ware playing de would be our best option. And if we run a system similar to the giants or Seahawks he can play olb

    I don't think it's scheme. He played DE at Purdue and as has been mentioned here many times, we basically played a 43 anyhow.

    He's gone because we can't afford him IMO. Unless he's willing to take a very friendly deal, which I don't see him doing or it would already have happened, he's gone.

    He stays he fits fine in a 4-3 . We will simply franchise him again so he won't get away .

    This. Spence fits fine in a 4-3, the money will have him going elsewhere.

    I can see Ware playing DE in a 4-3. Spencer on the other hand has pretty much stood up as a 3-4 OLB his entire career in Dallas. Spencer, at 250lb, switching to a new position as a 4-3 DE lined up across from 300-325lb RTs play after play is a very big change.

    I let him walk if we move to a 4-3. Take that money and invest in safeties.

    Between Ware, Ratliff, Crawford, Hatcher, Lissemore, Spears we can find a group that can play DL.

    Sensy, Church, Johnson, Mccray - we are hurting big time

    Sign Jarius Byrd and draft Reid or Elam or Vaccaro.

    do you want to pay 10m to a guy making the move the DE, who isnt the greatest pressure player anyway.
    Thats top 6/7 DE money..................... in the tampa 2 that front 4 sure as hell better get pressure by themselves on a regular basis
