This will be Spikes second tenure in New England, with him spending his first four seasons there before being shipped off to Buffalo in 2014. It was apparent that Spikes wasn’t going to fit in the new scheme of the Bills, with the team changing to a 3-4 defense under new coach Rex Ryan.
The Patriots released linebacker Cameron Gordon on Monday to make room for the newly acquired Spikes.
