Unhappy With Franchise Tag, Anthony Spencer Switches Agents

The Dallas Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Anthony Spencer in March, but he has been reluctant to sign the $8.8 million tender in hopes of agreeing to a long-term deal. In effort to get that done before the July 16 deadline, Spencer switched agents over the weekend, according to ESPN Dallas.

Spencer was formerly represented by Roosevelt Barnes and will now sign with Jordan Woy.

The outside linebacker was not in attendance at voluntary workouts, which began today for Dallas. At this point, he has no plans to sign the tender that was offered to him by receiving the franchise tag from the Cowboys.

A season ago, Spencer racked up 66 tackles and six sacks for the Cowboys. He also forced four fumbles in 2011.
