2012 NFL Free Agency: Cowboys Have Not Talked To Anthony Spencer Since NFL Combine, According To Source

According to the Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill, the Dallas Cowboys have not talked to free agent outside linebacker Anthony Spencer since the NFL Combine last week.

Most believe that the Cowboys will apply the franchise tag to Spencer to keep him in Dallas for at least one more year, but as teams around the league have begun to use their tags, the Cowboys have been silent.

However, the last time the two sides talked, they said they would talk again before the deadline to place franchise tags came on March 5, two days from now.

If the Cowboys do use the franchise tag on Spencer, they would be forced to pay him $8.8 million for the 2012 season and they may feel that's a lot for a pass rusher who has never accrued more than six sacks in a season.

The Cowboys still have until March 5 to decide whether or not they'll use their franchise tag on Spencer but the fact that the two sides haven't talked since the Combine began.
