Any Rams fans planning to welcome defensive end Anthony Spencer to St. Louis may want to hold off on purchasing any balloons or streamers.
Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reported early on Sunday that Spencer was set to visit the Rams on Sunday, but he has retracted that report and now reports that Spencer will be visiting the Cowboys’ division rivals in New Jersey. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network also reports that Spencer will be taking a visit with the Giants.
The Giants saw Justin Tuck sign with Oakland last week, leaving them with an opening for a veteran defensive end to go with Jason Pierre-Paul and Mathias Kiwanuka. Spencer missed all but one game last season after having microfracture and isn’t expected to be 100 percent for the start of training camp, which would likely make him a reasonably priced gamble for a Giants team that saw its once fearsome pass rush lose its bite last season.
Spencer’s visit will be part of what’s already been a busy Sunday for the Giants. They signed kick returner Quintin Demps and cornerback Walter Thurmond before most people had their coffee.
