Not a chance.
I guess if he is on the wrong side of 30 then it would be better if he was 32 and dealing with minor injury? lol
Man I get a kick out of our fans.
Some part of me wonders if he knew about this and just didn't mention it till after his contract extension deadline had passed. I always find it amazing that so many of these guys wait till they are on the team clock to get these surgeries. They'd rather skip training camp, preseason, etc than miss 4 weeks of their own free time to be ready to go.
Sorry - I meant next year when he's up for the new contract, I didn't make that clear. He needs to have a monster year to get another 10M+ guaranteed in his next deal is all I'm getting at, not coast.
Good. Nothing worse than trying to rehab for a month then missing games for surgery
Let me add, "in hell"...
4 weeks from now is only August 20th, and there are 2+ weeks from then until the start of the season.
Fair enough, but regardless of how well Spencer plays this year, he won't be getting a 10M+ a year deal anywhere. I don't even think his agent was looking for that. From what I read, he was looking for around 8 and Dallas wanted around 6. The going rate for DEs dropped for some reason this year and that will hurt Spencer. I think that's the reason he decided to play for the tag this year and get a BIG chunk of up front money. Even if he gets 6M a year deal next year, he'll still have an extra 10M in the bank, so it works out really well for him. His only gamble is an injury that would hurt his future value.
Dallas is paying extra for him now, but they don't have any future years on the books to worry about at this point, so it works to their advantage in that respect as well. I wouldn't be all that surprised if we DO end up giving him a deal next year if he's affordable enough and plays well. Crawford's injury really plays into that.
Sorry I had to call you out on the age thing, but I've seen that too often, when someone argues against a player being resigned, they inflate his age. Spencer was 32 years old at one point this past April. Putting in false information to make a point seems more valid aggravates me. Even if it was unintentional in this case.
Surgery for a bruise? Me thinks there is something they aren't telling us...
He'll be fine just do not rush him back on the field... The goal is week 1 of the regular season!
It's a 2-4 week injury...
from what i've read he was hurt in TC at the first day. But anyways if he had that injury already to me that smell more like he wants to skip time of camp. I'm just not a fan of this guy and this injury adds up to it.
Especially since we got an extra week of camp by playing in the HOF game.
It's not a "Hey I walked into car door" kinda bruise.
The guys been an excellent olb for a while now. Just not flashy. Lots of players cry and moan and miss time when they cant get a new contract but he's on his second FT and hasn't let out a peep as far as I know. I just thought he might have already had problems and didn't want to hurt his negotiating strength this summer. I wouldn't blame him if he did. My understanding of a knee scope is to get the trash out from under the knee cap and it usually builds up over time not after one practice.
This obviously isn't ideal, bit I'd rather get this over with now, rather than a month from now.
Nah man I get it, it's all good and was a typo on my part. All I was trying to say is that the NFL is no longer handing out giant contracts to the 30+ crowd, so Spencer isn't cashing in no matter what, and has major incentive to play well. As opposed to those insinuating the surgery is some ploy on his part.
Oh thank goodness.. he is going to get 2 whole weeks...
He'll be practicing for over 1/3rd of the preseason and it'll be the important part that leads up to the season. If this is all it takes for you to hit the panic button you're in for a long year.
When did I hit the panic button exactly? I was just commenting on 1 player.
