This makes a lot of sense seeing that we're running a 3-4. -On numerous occasions between 2007-2008 we utilized Spencer as a double-option CB, he's a wildcard for opposing offensive tackles in the pass-rush, and snuffing out the run. -When Spencer is healthy, he has the speed/juke to circle around the offensive backfield. (In fact he makes Manny Lawson look like a joke while doing it.)
A lot of people remember his Kitna hit, but his most impressive play IMO was when he shut Adrian Peterson down with a 'gliding' trip which forced the Vikings offense back almost 7 yards.
But again... his effectiveness will only be measured by his health, so thankfully we'll be covered with Bly if anything happens.
