The Dallas Cowboys drafted Anthony Spencer with a 2007 first-round pick hoping to pair the Purdue star with DeMarcus Ware to form a dominant pass-rushing tandem that would rule the NFC East for the next decade.
Spencer hasn't exactly panned out in his five years with the Cowboys -- his six sacks this season match a career-high -- and he conceded Thursday that Sunday's divisional title bout against the New York Giants could be his final game with a star on his helmet.
"It could be," Spencer said, via The Dallas Morning News. "It's a fact. But I really don't think about it. I play to win and try to get through the season and get to where we want to be at the beginning of the season to now. It hasn't changed."
Spencer added: "Whatever is going to happen is going to happen regardless, so I'm not worried about it at all."
"I've been here. I like it here," he said. "I don't want to go nowhere else, but I got to do what's best for me and my family."
