Outside linebacker Anthony Spencer didn't show up for the first day of the Cowboys' voluntary offseason conditioning drills Monday.

It's not a surprise because Spencer hasn't signed his franchise tag, worth $8.8 million, because he's hoping to get a long-term deal with the Cowboys.

If Spencer decides to work out with the team without signing the franchise tag, he must first reach a financial settlement with the Cowboys in case he gets injured during the offseason programs.

Miles Austin did the same thing in 2009 after he was given a first-and-third-round tender.

It's been a busy few days for Spencer.

He changed agents, leaving Roosevelt Barnes for Jordan Woy over the weekend, and he's now looking at the business side of the NFL
Calvin Watkins joined ESPNDallas.com in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
