    He can probably play the position; however, I would be concerned giving him a big contract or Franchising him at 10M to do it.

    I thought Spencer was a must-retain in the Rob Ryan defense because they just didn't have anybody else that was a 3-tool player (i.e. run defense, pass-rush and coverage). The Kiffin SDE just needs to be a 2-tool player (i.e. run defense and pass-rush).

    I do think that Spencer is a very good player and has been very underrated since he's been with the Cowboys.

    I disagree. He has steadily improved in the pass rushing department the last several years and has shown himself to be much better than average. Perhaps Rat and Hatch can generate good pressure in the middle or maybe not but two bookends plus rushers on the line go a long way towards making our defense elite.

    A replacement whoever it may be might be serviceable but a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Teams always pick top rushers high and by 18 I expect it to be thin.

    Teams like the Colts and Steelers follow this model and are successful and I think emulating consistent success is a good thing.

    ... Which is why they are in preliminary talks. What part of preliminary talks means they are guaranteed to sign him?

    Without Romo, it really doesnt matter who we have on defense......3 wins max.

    I love Spencer as a player, but I think we could franchise him, let somebody else tender him and draft his replacement. I am not at all for signing a player to a huge contract if the resources spent could've gone to player(s) that can help us more.

    Jerry likes to give new coordinators gifts; I would not be surprised if we sign Spencer. Lord knows, Jerry fixed the OL last year, so no worries there.:)
