Cowboys haven't talked with Anthony Spencer's agent since combine, yet to make decision on franchise tag

While a number of teams around the league have already made put the franchise tag on their key free agents, the Cowboys have still not decided on what to do with linebacker Anthony Spencer.

Not only has the team not made a decision but have not talked with Spencer's agent Roosevelt Barnes since NFL Scouting Combine last week in Indianapolis, a source said

The two sides said at the time that they planned to talk again before the March 5 deadline to apply the franchise tag.

At this point, it seems the Cowboys have no choice but to tag Spencer and guarantee him $8.8 million season.

He will likely have penty of suitors on the free agent market and the Cowboys have no in-house candidates to replace him in the lineup.

Spencer is very good against the run. The Cowboys believe they can boost his sack totals if they actually turn him loose to rush the passer more.

He was used in coverage quite a bit last season.
