Brandon Spikes skipping OTA’s to train down in Florida

We’ve already reported that Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes has skipped both week’s of OTA’s.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Spikes is down in Florida working on his athleticism.

It sounds like Spikes wants to prove he can be a three-down linebacker, which will help him earn more money as a free agent after this season.

Spikes should have a chance to test the free agent market because I’m sure Bill Belichick won’t have a problem letting him walk after skipping out on OTA’s.
