IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed defensive end Anthony Spencer to a one-year deal worth up to $3.5 million after he missed all but one game last season with a knee injury.
It's the third straight one-year deal for Spencer after the Cowboys put the franchise tag on him in 2012 and 2013.
The 30-year-old Spencer hurt his left knee during the offseason last year and aggravated the injury at the start of training camp. He missed the preseason and the opener before playing in Week 2, and then had a second operation in as many months and was out the rest of the season.
Spencer moved from linebacker to end last year when the Cowboys switched to the 4-3 defense.
The contract was announced on Saturday.
