Not sure how credible the source is ... But

@spotrac: RT @_MartyMcFly88_: @spotrac UB Med Students confirming that Brandon Spikes is in town for his #Bills physical.



UPDATE: Looks like it's a one year deal (see page 3 of this thread)

Also, Whaley said this morning on WGR that the plan is to move Kiko to OLB... maybe this has something to do with that.

Honestly, not sure how I'd feel about this. Yes, he's a good LB (and we need another good LB), specifically vs the run (and we need help vs the run), but I worry about his attitude and his locker room impact.

If he signs, I hope it works out.

I have faith in Marrone and the leaders on this team to keep him straight. There's too many good character guys on this squad to let one person change the culture.

We need his attitude and presence in the locker room I believe.

Between Marrone, Freddy and K. Williams there are more then enough high characters guys to keep it all under control.

The guy can play. We know this for a fact, so I'm all for checking him out. My guess is that if he had played for some NFC team we hardly ever faced instead of the Pats, everyone here would be screaming for OBD to sign him!

That's actually why I want him. Let him play against his former team twice a season and he will wreck havoc.

He would compliment Kiko so well. Moving Kiko to OLB will allow Spikes to play MLB and eat up blockers and stuff the run. On passing downs we can move Kiko inside and keep Rivers/Lawson at the other LB

I have a pure hatred for this guy. Ever since he was flexing after giving Freddy a concussion and called Buffalo the ***hole of America.

With that said, when he starts helping this team against the run on gameday, I will probably be cheering for him. Laughing
I'm weak for anyone in a Bills jersey. Haha

I actually sort of forgot what he said about Buffalo. It would definitely be a signing that would divide a lot of people, he could definitely help the team though. That being said it would be hard to support a guy like that.

That's part of my problem, and why I referred to his attitude.

I'm sure I'll end up cheering for him too (if we sign him), and I really do believe he can significantly help this team, it'll just be strange at first.

Yeah definitely. Guess we'll have to wait and see if this is all true first and then we can worry about that part haha.
