Brandon Spikes has decided to play his trade in Buffalo after signing a one-year deal with the Bills.

The former New England Patriots linebacker is a free agent and has managed to get a $3.25 million deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who broke the news on Twitter.

Spikes is a big hitting deal for the Bills, quite literally. After playing for the Patriots for the past three years, he's amassed some 286 tackles and won an AFC Championship. One of them, a late hit against the Bills, got him fined $25,000 in 2012.

This one-year contract though is a deal to prove he can perform in a team. Spikes has been part of Belichick's unit for a while and it'll be interesting to see how well he can perform out of it.

His 2013 was a low point as he spent most of the season playing through knee injuries, eventually going on injury reserve in January before being cut.
