  • Spikes on Trade Block

    Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Buffalo Bills are willing to trade linebacker Takeo Spikes.

    Spikes, signed by the Bills from Cincy in 2003, missed most of 2005 with a torn Achilles' tendon and was generally ineffective in 2006.

    Spikes is signed through 2008. He is scheduled to earn a salary of $4.5 million ins 2007, and a salary of $5 million in 2008.

    We're already getting rumors of him back to Cincinnati.

    Too old and he burned his bridges on the way out, I want nothing to do with him.

      Won't get much for him. Maybe a mid-late round pick at best.

        I rather keep him.
        It takes more than 1 year to recover from a torn Achilles' tendon. imo

            Him and Corey Dillon were the only ones that made watching the Bengals worth it for a few years there.

            I was dissapointed when he left.

              So with the release of Simmons I am guessing you're keeping Thurman.

              Too bad about Pollack.

              I was expecting big things from him.

                Is Buffalo basically rebuilding without actually admitting it?

                  Well lets see.

                  Not re-signing best DB
                  Not res-signing best LB
                  Trying to trade best OLB
                  Trying to trade best RB

                  Almost looks like it. Does it not?

                    IMO the loss of Simmons has no impact. We still would've likely started Landon Johnson/Ahmad Brooks/Rashad Jeanty even if Simmons stayed so he was really for depth.

                    The front office has been tight lipped about it and I honestly have no idea what will happen. I'm assuming if/when he gets reinstated he will probably play preseason with the 3rd team (that's what he had to do last year) and will be way down on the depth chart. I'm hoping that eventually he will get his act together and become our MLB and move Ahmad to SLB.

                        They'll be lucky to squeeze out a mid-late 4th rounder for him. I'm definitely not surprised that he's up on the block now.

                          Its true. I'd like to give TKO another year, but even so far removed from the injury I'd say Crowell has surpassed him for us.

                            Outside yes, Fletcher is their best LB.
