Jerry Jones said the market helping them with Anthony Spencer, says its possible do deal now

A few weeks ago at the NFL combine, owner Jerry Jones was not very confident the Cowboys could afford to sign linebacker Anthony Spencer to a long-term deal.

He said the contract figures he had in mind were a lot less than Spencer would likely take.

But that was before the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Spencer, guaranteeing him a $10.6 million salary for next year and before a slow free agent market produced smaller contracts for pass rushers than originally thought.

Jones said it’s no longer impossible to get a deal done and its something the Cowboys very much want to happen.

Jones said the new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and new defensive line coach Rod Marinelli love Spencer and both are excited about what he will be able to do at defensive end in the 4-3 defense.

 “That adjusts what people's expectations are of where the reality is,” Jones said. “We really want to have Anthony. He's somebody who our new coaching staff is really impressed with. It's not impossible we can get that thing to both our satisfaction.”
