    Didn't he have a career year last year?

    He was our best player on defense so I'm not sure I understand the sarcasm

    I think Dallas is working on getting Spencer deal done so that they can remove the Franchise Tag. Stephen has talked about it just as he talked of getting Romo done and in the end I think they will get a deal done with Spencer

    True but a new deal has to be in place by mid July or else the Franchise Tag remains for the season. I'm pretty certain the Cowboys will get a deal worked out with Spencer now that the Romo deal is done.

    I would not give him another contract. We need to get younger. Not pay two DE's in their 30's big money.

    This.

    Spencer is a necessary expense this year but the Cowboys should not try and reward him with a new contract if he does not sign one before the beginning of the season. The Cowboys need to get younger.

    Even if they are 2 of the best DEs in the league. The over 30 argument is just an arbitrary construct.

    Forgot about that part. I'd still carry him with the tag, though, and determine after this season if he's worth keeping around as a defensive end.

    For all we know right now, Kiffin might have to rebuild this defense in his image. There's no reason to lock up Spencer if major changes are going to be needed to get the 4-3 reestablished in Dallas.

    (Now, I believe the parts are in place for the transition, but that doesn't mean it will turn out like I or even Kiffin expect.)

    If we have the option, I'd like to see him in the new scheme before making any lasting decisions.

    Where? The secondary and LBs are very young. The DL is veteran, but loaded with talent. The WRs are young, so is the OL. The RBs are very young and the QB is 32. Witten is a vet, but very productive. They are getting a lot better at drafting and after this year could have a very solid, young core.
