Something appears to be afoot at Valley Ranch, if the the latest Tweets making the rounds through the Twitterverse are to be believed. Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com started it off by suggesting that the Cowboys were bringing in free agents in anticipation of extensions with Spencer and Romo being completed soon:
You don't bring people in without the intent to buy .. Romo deal has to be close .. As in hours maybe— Nick Eatman (@nickeatman) March 25, 2013
Ed Werder also picked up some rumblings from Valley Ranch, only he reports that the Cowboys are close to a deal with Anthony Spencer.
Cowboys negotiating multi-year deal with Anthony Spencer. That could create cap space for visiting FAs S0 Michael Huff or OL Eric Moore— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) March 25, 2013
In a later tweet, Werder clarified that the Cowboys visited OL Brandon Moore last week, not the Eric Moore in his tweet. There had been local reports that the Cowboys did not have a meeting scheduled with Brandon Moore - which could make sense if that meeting had already happened.
But back to the pending deals. Mike Fisher also enters the fray on Anthony Spencer, and also indicates that a deal could be imminent.
VRanch source tells me: 'More midnight-oil-burning' re Spencer talks between #Cowboys VP SJones & agent.— mike fisher (@fishsports) March 25, 2013
We don't know whether these reports are false alarms, smokescreens or something else, but it certainly looks like the things are starting to move.
