Default Marcus Spears, Sensabaugh to test FA

Quote:
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Dallas Cowboys will let defensive end Marcus Spears and safety Gerald Sensabaugh test the free agent marketplace before offering those players new deals, if at all, a source close to the team said Monday.

The Cowboys have interviewed several defensive ends and safeties at the Senior Bowl and national scouting combine as possible replacements.

Spears, who was drafted 20th overall in the 2005 draft, proved to be a productive player for the Cowboys yet was replaced in the starting lineup by Stephen Bowen after suffering a left calf strain. Spears, who has eight sacks and 16 tackles for loss in his career, was placed on injured reserve Nov. 10.

Spears was irked before the start of the 2010 season, when the team tendered him at original draft pick level ($1.226 million) for the 2010 season. That offer was lower than backups Jason Hatcher and Bowen received via second-round tender deals.

I expect Wade to sign Spears and possibly Sensabaugh.

This could be the first real test as to how much influence Wade has with player acquisitions.

In 2010, Sensabaugh tied for the team lead with five interceptions, but the secondary struggled as the Cowboys allowed 57 plays of 20 or more yards. The Cowboys want to lower these numbers and believe a better pass rush and improved play overall at the safety and cornerback positions can help.
At first when reading the article, I was thinking.. "well he does have familiarity with Wade and that would be a good thing however.. I wonder about this part of the article

(but I didn't watch the cowboys much)

Sensabaugh is probably a half tick better than eugene wilson. Okay if you can keep him from being exposed because he is an NFL veteran, but is better as fill-in starter than someone you truly trust.

Spears is above average against the run, but really offers little as a pass rusher. Not as good A. Smith. The main reason I don't think he signs here is that he fashions himself a starter versus the third he would be in Houston.

Their other DE Stephen Bowen played better last season and also didn't finish the season injured. Can probably get a better value contract on him too
