Spence was a surprise cut by the Buccaneers during final cuts. The 2016 second-rounder never really blossomed into a great pass rusher, but was one of the better linemen on the roster.

Not really. He got a ton of reps in OTAs and never did anything. BA and Bowles gave him entire preseason games and he still never did anything.

Shaq Barrett, Carl Nassib, Demone Harris, and Anthony Nelson all showed more during that time.

Hell, even Devante Bond made plays and with any other coaching staff last year, he'd have been long gone. Bowles found something in Bond that didn't seem to be there the last few years. 

Spence's rookie year was crazy good. He had five and a half sacks and played the whole season with a torn shoulder. But he hasn't been the same since. And he seems to only know how to try to run around OTs.

Really thought he'd pan out better than he has.  Just never really developed from what he came into the league as i guess?

Still...could do worse just picking up a body off the street to fill a spot as the IR list grows for the Redskins.  At least maybe there's some upside to him if you can tap into it?  Though probably not.
