Cowboys use franchise tag on LB Spencer

The Dallas Cowboys have used their franchise tag on LB Anthony Spencer, a team source said Monday.

The team reportedly has been weighing the option of using the tag on Spencer since February, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which cited a team source.

By receiving the franchise tag, Spencer will earn a salary of about $8.8 million in 2012.

Spencer finished last season with 66 tackles and six sacks for the Cowboys.
