Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

Whenever I see a guy with a 34 inch neck breaking down physically, I start to wonder what type of "supplement" he has taken to achieve his current state. I mean, look at that neck. It actually has to taper back down into his shoulders.

We need depth, not a starter. Takeo is a starter and probably wouldn't accecpt a backup role or a small contract. Cincinnati has a bigger need than we do for a LB. I see that as a better all around situation for him.

No way in hell he goes back to Cincy. He RAN from there on the way to Buffalo.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

I think Haggans is the best guy available.

Anyone know the extent of Spikes & Colvin's injuries? I know Spikes had shoulder surgery last year, but is it expected to be a slow recovery?

Both of these guys may have a couple of good years left.

That was back when Cincy really sucked. They just had a bad season last year because they had alot of injuries on defense.

Hell yes we should take him! The man logged in 139 tackles last year for the eagles! He also played along side Fletcher! With those 2 and Washington or Rocky. We have solid backups to fill in too. Blades is young and could use the veteran mentorship. He is also a kick butt defender and speedy.

I say we take him.

Re: Takeo Spikes -- Should we?

Has anyone heard anything about Lemar Marshall? according to redskins.com he a an available UFA. He spent several seasons with the Skins and has worked extensively with Blache. He could provide the depth we need at an affordable price.
