The Lions Want Takeo Spikes, Does Takeo Spikes Want the Lions?

Filed under: Lions, NFC NorthA few years ago, I could see Takeo Spikes choosing to be selective in free agency. Of course, a few years ago Takeo Spikes wouldn’t be a free agent at the end of July.

But injuries and age have diminished the linebacker’s skillset. And as he looks for a home to settle in come training camp, the Lions appear to be very interested, but it remains to be seen how interested Spikes is.
“There’s an interest there on both sides,” president Matt Millen said. “I think he wants to still look at some things. We’ll be patient.”I’m not sure what Spikes wants to look at. The Lions were only the second team he visited this offseason. The first was the 49ers, months ago, so he’s had a lot of time to mull that opportunity over. It doesn’t appear there’s a lot of interest otherwise.

Regardless, the Lions wanted to get Spikes into camp on time but players reported this morning. Practices begin tomorrow, so there’s still time to get him in when it matters, but the ball appears to be in his court. In the meantime, the Lions might want to make sure their top draft picks are signed on time.
