Dallas Cowboys Offseason 2012: Anthony Spencer Will Have To Settle For Franchise Tag

Anthony Spencer seems to be the least likely to get a long term deal out of the 12 franchise tag players looking for a long term deal. At least that's the perspective taken at NFL.com, since the Cowboys have been clear about their intentions to keep Spencer franchised.

Really, the Boys were reluctant to guarantee Spencer the $8.8 million he'll get under the tag in 2012. So a long term deal was always unlikely considering this.

Spencer's agent Jordan Woy had this to say to ESPN's Todd Archer.

"We will start the season with his current contract. We will see what happens during the season. I'm sure we will have a discussion before the season ends."
