Could Anthony Spencer return this week?
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – The second week of the Cowboys’ offseason conditioning program begins Monday and outside linebacker Anthony Spencer is still weighing whether he will attend.
Spencer and his new agent, Jordan Woy, met with the team late last week and “went over several proposals.” The Cowboys are scheduled to pay Spencer $8.8 million as the franchise player in 2012, and, according to a source, have not made any multi-year offers.
Woy said Spencer would not take part in the conditioning program until he signs the tender and a decision would be made early this week.
Until Spencer signs the franchise tender, the Cowboys have the right to rescind the tag. It is possible they could trade Spencer before or during the upcoming draft.
In 2008, safety Ken Hamlin did not take part in the offseason program in addition to skipping the organized team activities and minicamp as the Cowboys’ franchise player before signing a six-year extension. Hamlin was released after the 2009 season.
