The Dallas Cowboys made it plain they would not get into bidding wars with other teams for their own free agents. They are staying true to their word. With the Philadelphia Eagles reportedly offering a five-year, $42 million deal with $21 million guaranteed to DeMarco Murray, the Cowboys politely, and smartly, passed. It looks like they might have to do the same with defensive end Anthony Spencer.
Dallas would like to bring him back on a low-cost deal, but he is receiving attention from multiple teams and is likely to be priced out of the Cowboys plans.
Cowboys veteran defensive end Anthony Spencer has a free agent visit set up with another team Monday, according to a source, and is in contract negotiations with multiple teams.
The Cowboys and Spencer are a good fit. He likes it in Dallas. The Cowboys like him as a veteran locker room leader. But they won’t get into a bidding war for Spencer. They would prefer to re-sign him on another low-risk deal, but that seems unlikely with multiple teams already in play and him set for a free agent visit with another team Monday.
The Cowboys now have money that was designated for DeMarco Murray, I would expect defensive end to be one of their priorities.
In other news, stop me if you head this one before. A Cowboys free agent is visiting the Tampa Bay Bucs.
