Cowboys Won't Lock Up Anthony Spencer Before Deadline

With the deadline approaching for teams to lock up franchised players for the long-term, it doesn't appear the Cowboys are going to secure Anthony Spencer's future in Dallas.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports took a look at each franchised player and laid out each situation with their respective teams. He doesn't see the Cowboys locking up Spencer.

Likewise, the Cowboys are content to let linebacker Anthony Spencer play it out another year to assess his overall worth.

The deadline for franchise tagged players to sign multi-year deals is Sunday. Otherwise, the players become free agents and can test the market for 2013. Spencer was tagged by the Cowboys in March and will make $8.8 million for the 2012 season.
