Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
Hey Guys,

Takeo Spikes got released earlier and I think he's an interesting name for us. With the questions surrounding rocky and Washington, I think he might be worth a contract to be solid depth / linebacker if Rocky/Washington can't come back on time/get injured.

I know he's a bit older, but he still has some gas in the tank, and as of this moment Im not horribly confident in our linebacking corps.

I don't see why we shouldn't go after him but you know what 45% of the people on this thread are gonna say.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
Like anything else, depends on the price. For a reasonable amount, I wouldn't have a problem with it as short term insurance.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
Im all for it, assuming hes not looking for anything big. Guys a beast and can still play. Not what he used to be. we have some young guys at backup, but washington is getting older and more fragile, mcintosh is coming off surguy, and fletcher is old (even though he hastn had a problem yet, and I hope he doesnt). this could be a great depth move

[I]What'chu talkin' 'bout no Tatino Spikes?!?!?![/I]

Ok, I should explain that: back when I was in college there was a brief time that Spikes (while with the bengals) tried to start up a rivalry with Ray Lewis, who was in his prime. Spikes said something like Lewis was overrated and that he was better and when a reporter told Lewis this his response was [I]What'chu talkin' 'bout no Tatino Spikes?!?!?![/I]. For some reason it killed me, and to this day I say it everytime I hear the man's name.
For that reason, plus the fact that he's older (but he'd probably be a good backup), I don't want him anywhere near the Skins.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
now is the time to sign somebody given the injuries to rocky we need someone to play with fletcher and marcus, off course we could negotiate so that his price will not sky high, but this guy has still some years left playing at high level.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
I think Mr. Spikes would be a good pick up as he has run the defense we ran don,t know how different it will be this year. Just think about Flecher same questions and he is stud....of course depends on the price! I can't believe the Skins are now considered to be frugal!!! Great! Keep this up and there wont be very many things on this message board to talk grip about as they have in the past!

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
solid depth of course would be nice and he is that. but I am going to take the opportunity to be the first person in this thread to say:

"no thanks"

now, all 300 others who are going to say it, let it be known i was first. mwahahahaha.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
All depends on price, he can play we know that but how much does he want?

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
I'd love to bring this guy in for depth or as a potential starter if Rocky or Marcus can't go at the start of the season. I can't imagine he'd ask too much (age and just getting cut), and he's a solid locker room guy.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
I have liked this guy since we traded the Bengals the pick to draft him.

Vet min of course.

Of course.

He doesn't have the speed to play OLB in my opinion. He's been an MLB his entire career, and he's become very injury prone the past few years. Fletcher will be solid at MLB for us for another 2 seasons or so I would imagine, and in the meantime HB Blades will continue to develop as his eventual replacement. Chances are someone will be interested in Spikes as a starter. I doubt he comes here to play out of position as a reserve.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?
if the guy could still play, he would still be in Philly. their linebackers are a mess. and spikes didnt make alot of money. i say thanks, but no thanks. only a shell of the former all star
