Even though the Dallas Cowboys are switching from a 3-4 to a 4-3 base defense, Anthony Spencer’s agent Jordan Woy says his client doesn’t want to play anywhere else next season.
“He told me, ‘I feel like I can play that position. I feel like I can do a great job at it,’” Woy said. “I talked about it with him. He’d love to stay in Dallas but ultimately it is a business and sometimes that works out and sometimes that doesn’t. He’s prepared for whatever the situation it is. But if he had his first choice it would be to stay in Dallas.”
Woy said he plans to talk to the Cowboys in the coming weeks to gauge their interest and potentially lay the groundwork for a new deal. Spencer played last season with an $8.8 million franchise tag.
“Now it’s obviously a matter if the [Cowboys] …feel like he’s a great fit,” Woy said. “And if they do we’re really hopeful we’ll be able work a deal out and have him stay there. If that’s not where ultimately their heads are at and what they think, then we’ll have to go out in the marketplace.”
The Cowboys have a tough decision to make with Spencer. Not every player can play in both a 3-4 and a 4-3.
The 29 year old Spencer had a great season in 2012 with 95 tackles, 11 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.
