07:54 AM ET 03.06 | The cap-strapped Cowboys spent their franchise tag on linebacker Anthony Spencer for a second consecutive year on Monday, raising some eyebrows in the process. Now we're learning the Cowboys could have other plans for Spencer. Citing a team source, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday on "NFL Total Access" that Dallas is open to trading Spencer and his $10.6 million salary if a suitor presents itself. Spencer would figure to have some value on the open market. He's coming off the best season of his career (11 sacks, 95 tackles) and teams always will have interest in defenders who know how to get to the quarterback. That said, Spencer is 29 and will want a multiyear commitment with any team that gets him.
