The news just keeps flying out of East Rutherford. On the heels of the signings of defensive backs Walter Thurmond and Quintin Demps, and the visit by cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, comes word that the Giants be hosting defensive end Anthony Spencer for a visit on Monday.
Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer gets into town today, will meet with the Giants tomorrow. #nyg— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) March 16, 2014
Spencer, 30, has spent his entire seven-year career with the Dallas Cowboys. He played only one game in 2013 before suffering a knee injury that required micro-fracture surgery.
Spencer had a career-high 11.5 sacks in 2012 while playing as a stand-up outside linebacker for the Cowboys in the 3-4 they were using at the time. To my knowledge, Spencer has never played as a traditional 4-3 defensive end
Spencer had scheduled a visit Sunday with the St. Louis Rams, which has apparently been cancelled in favor of his visit to New Jersey.
Spencer would likely be a low-cost option as the Giants look to fortify the defensive end position after losing Justin Tuck to the Oakland Raiders in free agency.
