Seems to be a lot of green in there too.
not if hes not playing.
I don't think the doctors screwed this one up.
They did a clean up on his knee of a cartilage issue to provide a quicker route back. What happened was, due to a prior knee procedure in 2008, where he had a similar procedure done to what was done this year, the remaining cartilage was not resilient enough to eliminate a bone on bone issue. As a result, he needs microfracture to attempt to create that buffer between the bones. The Cowboys were in a no lose situation with attempting what they attempted because the contract was already signed.
Sucks that they had a $10 million miss this year, but it is what it is.
You beat me too it. $10 million for air. I love it.
it happens, what can you do
This happens to other teams as well. Some folks act this is only happens to the Cowboys. Your right, it does happen. In this case Jerry/Stephen were smart not to give Spencer a long term deal.
When he ends up on a team next year it will be a bargan.
Nobody knew Spencer who has been relatively healthy would get hurt. I mean its just how it is. You lose guys. You can't see it coming.
Some team will sign him but it won't be for the big paycheck Spencer is looking for. That day has passed and Jerry said NO.
Cowboys are not really missing him now. Doubt they will miss him next season, especially if he commands an exorbitant price tag.
And all that hinges on IF Marinelli is still here. Without Marinelli, who knows how the DL will peform, even with a healthy Spencer.
It will be a small contract and the ends that got signed this year we cheap compared to previous years. Spencer has no leverage now. Or the Skins might go crazy.
Hope the 10 mill was worth it because he just screwed himself out of a ton of money. Have a hard time believing a guy didn't know his own knee problem before inking a contract. Dallas attempted a last ditch effort to salvage their investment and surprise suprise, his knee is "sore". Poor Anthony. Wouldn't be surprised if he was forced to sign an incentive laden contract just to get on a team next year.
At least we didn't sink longterm money in.
It's official per his agent - gone for the year per his agent from Twitter
Cowboys' Anthony Spencer will have season ending surgery. Dr says he will be 100% by Jan or Feb.
The guy got almost $20 mm for essentially playing for one season. He's set for life. No way his knee wasn't an issue before July.
How convenient for Anthony...... and his agent, and how meaningless to the team.
If he comes back healthy and we can't figure out a way to keep him - which seems likely - I bet the Giants are first in line.
If I remember correctly, Spencer signed his franchise tender really quickly, like the first day or week or something. Usually, players balk at the franchise tag and hem and haw and then sign before camp. I think Spencer knew something was up with his knee and he wanted to sign before the cowboys pulled the tag.
That $10M sure could have been used somewhere else like towards signing Dez long term. But, hey, the other guys like Hayden and Selvie are stepping up. No use crying over spilled milk.
Yeah - hey NFL my guy will be ready to sign with you as soon as the season is over. Hey Cowboys thanks for the 10 mil.
Gotta love agents...
That is the most important thing=no long term obligation.
