Defensive end Anthony Spencer formerly from the Dallas Cowboys would be a nice addition to the defensive line of the Oakland Raiders. The reason is mostly due to the fact that Spencer is currently a free agent; however, he is coming back from a season-ending injury.

As reported by Bleacher Report on Tuesday, Anthony Spencer is currently a free agent this off-season due to a season-ending injury in 2013. However, the Raiders should try to add Spencer to the defensive line who would make for a good rotation on the pass rush.

Spencer was an outstanding defensive end for the Cowboys since 2007. In 2012, he got 11 sacks, and, despite the injury, Spencer has a lot to show for at 30 years of age.

Anthony Spencer’s injury involved a bruised bone on his left knee. During the 2013 preseason, he underwent surgery to fix the bruised knee.

Spencer came back to play in 2013 against the Kansas City Chiefs and got two tackles and one quarterback hurry. However, he experienced pain with the same knee, and his season ended with micro-fracture surgery.

According to the Bleacher Report, Spencer has a lot offer once he is fully recovered. It that’s the case, the Raiders should add him to the roster as a nice backup to the defensive line.

Let’s face it, the Raiders have it tough when playing against quarterback’s in the divisional AFC West. It would be ideal for Oakland to rotate a defensive line with massive pass rushers against the likes of Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, and Alex Smith.

The Oakland Raiders already signed free agents Justin Tuck from the New York Giants and LaMarr Woodley from the Pittsburgh Steelers this off-season. Adding Anthony Spencer to help with the rotation would be a wonderful thing.
