Cowboys to part ways with Marcus Spears

Jason Hatcher, Marcus Spears AP

One of the strange parts of this offseason has been watching the Cowboys and Redskins watch from the sidelines, because of the salary cap penalties the league dropped on them.

Now, the Cowboys have dropped one of their own for a little room.

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys have decided to release defensive end Marcus Spears.

The former first-rounder will be designated a post-June 1 cut, allowing them to spread the cap hit out. He clears around $2 million in room this year, though they don’t get credit for it until the summer. Realistically, that’s part of the cap room they’ll need to sign draft picks.

Spears was also vaguely extraneous with the Cowboys move to a 4-3, as he’s a natural defensive end in a 3-4.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Hmmm... interesting.

He's a big boy (6-4, 315), still has some years left in the tank being "only" 30, and he's a graduate of LSU and he went to HS in Baton Rouge.

I wonder if he'd be willing to sign with the Saints for a discount?!

It's being said the cowpies are making a play at Urlacher. He won't come cheap. We may see a couple more of Jerry's kids become available in the near future as well.

I like Brian but he is getting a bit long in the tooth. i would rather a major youth movement with a few well priced vets sprinkled into the mix.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Titans sign DT Sammie Lee Hill (3 years, $11.4M; $4M guaranteed)

actual not as bad as i thought a bit less money than Jr and IMO less of a gamble

Buccaneers sign S Dashon Goldson (5 years, $41.25M; $22M guaranteed)

that just insane then again good luck collecting that 5th year

Chargers sign CB Derek Cox (4 years, $20M; $10.25M guaranteed)

Not bad a bit high IMO but not bad. at least we have a ball park set for CB

Winfield would be a 1 year (2 tops) stop-gap player that would give us some more flexibility come the draft.

RJ-F at the same price as what the Titans gave Sammie Lee Hill would be absolutely awesome.

I'm kind of glad Cox signed with the Chargers, because I do think $5M/yr would've been too big of a gamble with his history with injuries, and the shortage of cap space the Saints have at the moment.

I think that De la Puente signed the 1-year tender - at least Spotrac has an update of him having signed the 1-yr $2.02M tender on March 9th.

I would love to add RJ-F and Connor Barwin to the Saints' roster!
