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.

Yeah that's a good point haha.

Also hope this isn't just to get a better offer elsewhere, like Clabo was.

That actually worked out well for us in the end lol.

As for Spikes, I get why it would be hard for fans to cheer for him at first, however I think playing for New England definitely helped him create that persona of hating Miami, Buffalo, and the Jets.

IMO he is one those typical players you love to hate and when he is on your team you love him.

Yeah, for sure. Merriman was one of those players for me.

He and Pepper Johnson are tight, so I see no reason why he wouldn't sign at this point. Haven't even heard his name elsewhere.

Being reported on the Bills official message boards that Spikes has passed his physical and is now in negotiations with the team.

Its not being reported by any team officials though so take it for what its worth. One of the posters over there who writes for BuddyNixon is making the claim.

Are there any updates on Spikes? Is he still in Buffalo or has he left without a contract? I haven't heard of any other scheduled visits.

Brandon Spikes' visit with the Bills still is ongoing. (Presumably he's getting a nice meal out of the visit, at the least.)

#Bills free agent visit with LB Brandon Spikes and RB Anthony Dixon continue with team personnel tonight. #NFLFreeAgency

Funny how most Bills fans want Spikes when they constantly bashed him and called him a dirty player.

That being said, Spikes is a solid run defender who lays the wood. He's a liability in pass coverage, though.

You bother to read this thread? Plenty of us hate him. I'd say the majority of us do.

A lot of us also think he'll be a big help for the team and are willing to overlook our hatred towards him.

We still don't like him but he is what this team needs. Lawson and Kiko are both great on coverage. We need that thumper LBer who will improve the run defense. He is exactly what will complete our Linebacker core. And Rivers adds nice depth.

Fair enough.

If you don't follow him on twitter he's worth a follow. He's a funny, crazy dude. It's where my FF name came from #PoWwwwW

Just followed him today, I'm hoping it leads to us signing him Laughing

I hate waiting. If we get him, great, if not I won't be heartbroken.

He's from the AP, so he's pretty reliable IMO. I think we got him.
