Summary

The Bills sought to upgrade their run defense and hurt their rival when they signed Spikes away from the Patriots in free agency this offseason. His addition to the middle of the defense allowed them to move last year's breakout star Kiko Alonso to the weakside. An unfortunate training injury has left Alonso out for the year, which means that Spikes will almost certainly wind up with a 3-down role this year. He isn't great in coverage, but the Bills don't have many better options right now. The increase in playing time combined with a lack of surrounding talent at LB makes him a potential LB2 option in 2014. (August 16)
