IRVING, Texas -- 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 off-season 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 defence.
The contract was announced on Saturday.
