Now that quarterback Tony Romo is in the financial fold after signing a six-year extension, here’s a look at the Dallas Cowboys’ likely next order of business: 1 Ramp up talks with Anthony Spencer The Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Spencer, guaranteeing him a $10.6 million salary for next year. With Romo’s extension behind them, the Cowboys will turn their attention to getting a long-term deal for Spencer. The down free agent market has possibly made Spencer more affordable than originally thought. 2 Back to the free agency market With at least $5 million in salary cap space available after the Romo deal, the Cowboys will likely take another look at free agent prospects to give them added insurance at running back, offensive line and receiver so they won’t have to force those positions in next month’s draft. 3 First-round draft prospects Dallas started bringing in national draft prospects Monday, including several likely targets for the team’s No. 18 overall pick. Among high profile visitors are guards Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper and safeties Kenny Vaccaro, Eric Reid, Jonathan Cyprien and Matt Elam.
