The Dallas Cowboys have placed the franchise tag on outside linebacker/defensive end Anthony Spencer for the second straight season, per his agent Jordan Woy.
Dallas Cowboys will franchise tag Anthony Spencer for 2nd year in a row. We will work on long term deal.

I don’t understand why the Cowboys tagged Spencer. They need the cap room to sign other players and they really don’t know if he can play defensive end in a 4-3.
