The Buffalo Bills are getting closer to trading linebacker Takeo Spikes, The Buffalo News has learned.

Trade negotiations gained steam Friday and Saturday, and a deal might be consummated within the next day, a league source told The News.

Numerous teams reportedly were interested in acquiring the 30-year-old former Pro Bowler, but which one ultimately would win his services still was not known Saturday night. Spikes is entering what likely would be the final year of his contract with the Bills, and a trade may involve Spikes agreeing to a new contract with his new team. The Bills have an option to pick up the last year of Spikesí contract, in 2008.

I remember when Spikes was with the Bengals, he was a good player.

Detroit maybe?

I heard that it's Philadelphia. It was reported on a radio station that is was very close...if not a done deal.

He was good with the Bills too, except that he was always injured.

He was my favorite player on our team since he arrived.....it hurts me to see him leave after two injury troubled years, i think he was a great linebacker and wow is he ever jacked up!! I'll miss him but it is a business, and he'll be one of my favorties no matter where he goes...execept new england or oakland....then i hate him

Loved him in his prime, prototypical LB. It's a shame injuries got to him, I used to dream of having him across from Bulluck.

Notredameleo 03-25-2007 11:21 AM

I'd love him in Detroit. Could he play MLB?

SuperMcGee 03-25-2007 11:26 AM

I think he'll be pretty good where he goes. I think he can get over the injuries this year and be effective. We're not the best place for him anymore and we need to free up some money (thanks, Langston). This will further mess up our LB core (Ellison - Crowell - ??), but I guess we all knew he was on his way out anyway. I'll miss him. He was a great player and it would've been nice to have him one more year. But I guess they feel it's necessary and we're just not the place for him anymore.

I wouldn't complain. He could play SAM right?

Me too haha.

Broke my heart when he left, he was my favorite player at that point.

asmitty45 03-25-2007 05:17 PM

Id take him in the D, but as an OLB, he'd play alongside Sims and hopefully PWillis

OhioState 03-25-2007 05:25 PM

i am a big spikes fan. he is so phyiscally gifted and could really play any lb position. dude he's huge i know exactly what yur talking about

bored of education 03-25-2007 06:02 PM

He played awesome against the Pats I think last year. Giving brady the wood.

Gross, that is not awesome.

cunningham06 03-25-2007 07:33 PM

Seriously, if we get Spikes I would be so happy our defense would be practically complete.

scottyboy 03-25-2007 07:41 PM

oh god anywhere BUT philly- it seems both LB trade rumors(spikes and al wilson) have had the giants and eagles involved. you may see both traded to either. i love spikes, but anywhere except philly!!!!!!!!!!!

Rob S 03-25-2007 07:44 PM

What would the compensation be, a 3rd or 2nd I guess.

hugegmenfan 03-25-2007 07:49 PM

come to the giants takeo!

WMD 03-25-2007 07:50 PM

I doubt the Lions would trade for Takeo AND Draft Patrick Willis.

No way... 5th at most I'd think.

Space Ghost 03-25-2007 09:24 PM

I would guess that they would give us a 4th for him. Older, injured and has a moderately large contract.
