I was thinking about a good option for us to bring from free agency at MLB spot, since i'm not a big fan of signing Dansby. I like him, but if we sign him it would be to be a starter, and i really want Bradham and Kiko to have an opportunity inside in our offense. That made me look at the FAs available and i loved when i watched a familiar name. Takeo Spikes!
Look, this guy is my favorite Bills LB ever! ( yeah, i said that, i was too young when Talley was here). I known TKO is not getting any younger. I known he's not the same of his past time here. But i really belive he's the perfect fit. Look at my list of pros:
- He was a true playmaker, and is a great option for our young LBs learn from.
- He's not at his prime anymore, and can be here to contribute any way possible to finally go to the playoffs for the first time in his career. I want Bradham and Alonso starting, but we need a good option if one of then is not ready, and Takeo can be this guy.
- He's very versatile. Can play OLB and MLB in 4-3. Cand play any ILB position in a 3-4.
- Since he not signed with anyone yet, i think we can bring him in a cheap contract. I known he can play for a winner right now, but what if anyone gives him an opportunity?
I don't see why not bring him back in this situation. If you want a guy to start right now, maybe Dansby is your guy, but you will need to pay for that. But if you want a leader in the defense, a guy who can come in and start or not and will be happy to contribute, a guy to be an example to our young LBs, i think Spikes is the right option. Thought guys?
