Anthony Spencer will reportedly play under the franchise tag this season

Today is the deadline for players that have been hit with the franchise tag to sign a long-term extension with their current teams.  If something doesn’t get done today, both sides will have to wait until after the upcoming season to work on a deal.

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer will play under his one-year franchise tender in 2013.

Spencer will have a chance to prove that last season wasn’t a fluke and he can consistently be a difference maker.
