There's a chance that Anthony Spencer wore a Dallas Cowboys helmet for the last time Sunday night at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. Spencer is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on March 12 and his price tag might be out of the Cowboys' range.
That said, it looks like they're at least making an effort to wrap up Spencer long term.
According to ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer, "the Cowboys and [Spencer's] agent, Jordan Woy, have had preliminary talks in recent weeks and both sides are hopeful a deal can be worked out."
Woy also said he expects the two sides to keep talking in February. So there's hope, Cowboys fans, that your team's best defensive player from 2012 will return for many years to come.
