IRVING, Texas -- Fresh off signing his $8.8 million franchise tender Monday, outside linebacker Anthony Spencer worked out with his Cowboys teammates Tuesday at Valley Ranch.
Spencer is hopeful he'll receive a long-term contract. While talks have occurred with Cowboys officials, nothing has been finalized.
It's been a busy offseason for Spencer, who switched agents after getting franchised -- leaving Roosevelt Barnes for Dallas-based Jordan Woy -- contemplated signing the tender and missed the first week of voluntary workouts.
Spencer finished the 2011 season with six sacks but led the team with four forced fumbles and was tied with Sean Lee with eight tackles for loss. Spencer was second to DeMarcus Ware (40) with 31 quarterback pressures.
