    I like Lee a lot, but I think the hype is greater than the results. He is a very good MLB but I don't see the Hall of Fame in his future. I wouldn't overpay for either Lee or Spencer, but they are the type of players I want on my Defense for the next few years.

    He had 11 sacks and 95 tackles last year from OLB and has averaged 7 a year for 4 years with a bunch of pressures. I just don't get the Spencer questions.

    I don't think Spencer is going to get (in '14) what he think he is.

    Paul Kruger only got 5-years $40 mil and he's 27, while Osi Umensomething got 2-years $8.55 mil and he's 31 so maybe Spencer will get something in between?

    The magic age for good football players is 31. After that age there tends to be a steep drop in the league el of play. So in Lee's case you anticipate 4 more good years but in Spencers case you expect only 2 more good years.

    There's some merit to that.

    I think the Cowboys were talking around $6 mil per year... But I think Spencer has delusions of grandeur.

    I think their inability to do this is what put them in this current position.

    I'd say any time a guy doubles what would reasonably be expected based on multiple years, there's probably questions about what you'll get going forward.
