Former Patriots ILB Brandon Spikes Suspended 4 Games

Field Yates of ESPN is reporting that veteran ILB Brandon Spikes has been suspended for the first four weeks of the 2015 season.

Yates doesn’t say why Spikes received the suspension, but this is hardly the type of news that get him another shot in the NFL.

The Patriots signed Spike to a one-year contract worth $1.1 million a few months ago, only to release him in June after he was involved in a car accident and left the scene.

Spikes, 27, was forced to sign a one-year, $3 million contract with the Bills last year after finding very limited interest on the open market.

In 2014, he appeared in all 16 games and recorded 54 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and three pass defines. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 13 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players due in large part to a very solid rating as a run-defender.
