They need a big-time hammer in the middle on 1st/2nd down. Have to think they take a long look at Brandon Spikes. #Texans
how much should we pay a 31-year old, two-down ILB?
Is there no one in the draft we can pick up?

Spikes is 26, playing for Patriots. Pretty good player.

Sounds like he was either a bit of a problem or not a coach's favorite:

Brandon Spikes eager to move on

edit: I remember this now, he posted a pic of his car stuck in snow & missed practice... Pats IR'd him. Pretty intelligent sounding guy, actually: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...-a-fresh-start

Sure, but we have more needs than picks so it'd be good to fill a few with middle-of-the-road FAs if we can.

I think Riley would be a great option next to Cushing. Not a huge fan of Spikes.

In the 2011 season, Bass missed several games due to headaches, then later neck issues came into question (cervical discs can cause very severe headaches).

In the 2013 offseason, he underwent surgery for elbow bone spurs. Even earlier in this offseason Bass underwent a surgery that was only identified by Coughlin as "a little surgery on his body" which was most likely a minimally-invasive cervical disc surgery.

In the 2nd game of the 2013 preseason he suffered a "sprain of his MCL," which caused him to miss a couple of regular season games. He then had recurrence of neck problems leading to 3 missed games, but managed to avoid season-ending surgery. Unfortunately, he re-injured his MCL the first drive of the first game in which he returned. From there, he was placed on IR at the end of the season. In the addition to the above, Bass intermittently dealt with hip and shoulder problems in the 2013 season.
He has subsequently undergone knee surgery for the injury that cut his 2013 season short........he is still "recovering." There is also a question as to if Bass has not also had a neck procedure during his post IR period.

He's essentially missed 18 games in 3 seasons.

Do I still hear a bid?

No. Thanks c&d. I absolutely loved this guy comming out of college , but I was unaware of his VAST injury history. Figured he was competent and reasonably priced...but now I want no part of him.

Oops... I looked up the wrong Spikes.

ESPN Insider eval...
Quote:
A thumper against the run, Spikes is among the most physical and violent downfield linebackers in the NFL. He is speed deficient and a liability in pass coverage, however, with some maturity and character concerns as well. Overall, he's an impact run-defender who is not suited to play in sub packages, which could lead to a reduced payday. He has never played every game in a season during his four-year career.
Sounds a lot like Sharpton to me.
