He made pretty good money considering age/injury issues. They saved $5M off this year's cap by cutting him today.

Chances are someone will be interested in Spikes as a starter. I doubt he comes here to play out of position as a reserve.
Do you think Blades will get a look at outside due to our thin depth at this point? Spikes could be a reserve for us.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

We are probably going to lose (he aleady is a UFA) Godfrey. I don't see any reason why Spikes can't just step into his spot for a reasonable price.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

I'd take Colvin over Spikes (though neither may even stay healthy enough to last past the first month)

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

We dont need an injuried guy over 30 with a big name to ride the bench behind a starter over 30.
If we're gunna pick up depth at MLB...it should be with youth.
If we're gunna pick up a short term starter at OLB...then we should look elsewhere.
I dont see Spikes as an OLB at this point

Blades did play some outside last year when Rocky got hurt. He can play OLB, but I think he's better suited as a MLB. Apparently Rocky's rehab is going very well, but we'll need some depth, especially with Godfrey most likely going to another team or back into retirement. I'm very wary of Spikes though.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

In case anyone is curious, some other FA LB's still on the market, in order of their perceived value by Sporting News (I didn't include Karlos Dansby b/c he's been franchised):

Michael Boley, Falcons, (Restricted) Age: 25, 6-3, 236lbs

Clark Haggans, Pitt, Age: 31, 6-4, 243lbs

Landon Johnson, Cincy, Age: 26, 6-2, 232lbs

Boss Bailey, Det, Age: 28, 6-3, 235lbs

Brandon Chillar, St. Louis, Age: 25, 6-3, 242lbs

Victor Hobson, NYJ, Age: 28, 6-0, 252

Scratch Boss Bailey off that list. He's going to Denver.

Chillar might be headed to the Packers

I heard the Broncos were considering Bailey, never heard that it was official. Haggans is 31, but he could be interesting. He had a few huge games for Pitt last year, and he plays OLB, albeit in a 3-4.

Yeah Boss is official. There must be a link somewhere out there. I can look after dinner.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

If the price is good, he'd be good. He was good last year. He'd be back with Fletcher.

I love Chillar. I really wish we could pick him up. I mean a guy with the name Chillar has gotta be badass right?

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

ESPN says that Spikes played WLB, so I guess he could come as insurance policy for Rocky, if the price is right. Although with the team conservative approach to free agency, who knows. I'd like to throw out a name for the team to consider during the draft given that we're talking about LBs....Erin Henderson.
