Of course it can always work. That's only part of the problem. The other half is in order to make it work, you push cap burdens down the road and possibly forego other areas of need. Dallas backed itself into a corner regarding Spencer. They shouldn't have tagged him last year because it's a no-win situation for Dallas. Now they've used up 9M in cap space that could have been used to sign a guy long term or even avoid some restructuring last year, thus dropping the cap number this year and years beyond and they are no better off right now than the day the season ended last year in terms of having an OLB. They held themselves hostage.
