Spencer is signed for 5 years

Anthony Spencer, the Cowboys' first round draft pick, signed a five-year deal worth $9 million. The linebacker from Purdue also got a $6 million signing bonus. This is great news for the Cowboys. Many expect him to be an impact player right off the bat.

His strength is his speed. He is always around the action and can drop back to cover during pass plays. He's a natural pass rusher, which the defense desperately needs. He's smart and has great instincts.

He is a bit undersized and doesn't have the typical bulk or height teams look for in a pass rusher. What he needs to work on is being able to break away from large lineman.

Nonetheless, everyone seems high on this guy. I am excited to see him play.
