Cowboys | Could use more 4-3 in Week 8

Thu, 25 Oct 2012 07:15:53 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys could go into a 4-3 defensive alignment in their Week 8 game against the New York Giants due to injuries to LB Sean Lee (toe) and DE Sean Lissemore (ankle). "I think that's something they'll evaluate," DE Marcus Spears said of the defensive coaches. "We've been a multifaceted defense since the beginning of the year so guys have to prepare for 3-4 and 4-3. For us, that's the way we've been playing up to this point and I don't think that will change much." If the Cowboys went with a 4-3, a potential lineup would be at end DE Jason Hatcher and DE Kenyon Coleman with DT Josh Brent and DT Jay Ratliff the tackles. Expect LB DeMarcus Ware and LB Anthony Spencer to remain the outside linebackers with LB Bruce Carter the middle linebacker.

Cowboys | Kenyon Coleman on roster bubble?

Mon, 25 Jun 2012 21:32:47 -0700

Dallas Cowboys DL Kenyon Coleman is entering the final year of a two-year, $3.5 millio contract, and he is expected to make a $1.9 million base salary in 2012. The rise of DL Sean Lissemore, re-deployment of DL Marcus Spears to the left side, and with seven defensive ends in camp might make Coleman expendable.

Mon, 25 Jun 2012 05:48:02 -0700

Dallas Cowboys DL Marcus Spears realizes he has yet to live up to the expectations entering the league as a first-round draft pick. "I haven't put up the gaudy sack numbers or (lived up to) the first-round hype that you get especially being drafted with DeMarcus Ware," Spears said. "But I've been doing my job for a long time at a high level and hopefully can continue to do that on the side I'm used to." Spears will be moving back to the left side of the defensive line in 2012.

Wed, 30 Nov 2011 07:18:39 -0800

The Cowboys will square off with Wells and the Cardinals in Week 13. "I heard he ran the ball well," Spears said, "but I watched DeMarco (Murray) run for 250-something on that same defense."
