After recent reports that neither he or the Patriots have been speaking to one another on a new contract, Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes sounds like he’s ready to make a change this offseason.
The soon-to-be free agent linebacker appeared¬†on NFL Network’s ‘NFL AM’ and said during the intervierw¬†that both he and the Patriots could use a “fresh start”, which would lead you to believe his days in New England are over.
“I would never say never,” said Spikes regarding returning to New England, “you know, everybody [says] you never want to burn a bridge, but I just feel like both sides could benefit from a fresh start.”
Spikes also said during the interview that he’d be surprised if the Patriots released veteran tackle Vincent Wilfork.
‚ÄúIf he hits the free agency, I would be shocked,‚ÄĚ said Spikes. ‚ÄúI think the Patriots love him, the organization up there, Boston loves him. He‚Äôs been there for a while. I just honestly can‚Äôt see him leaving.”
