Buffalo Bills linebacker Brandon Spikes has taken more shots at his former team the New England Patriots where he spent his first four seasons in the NFL.

The 26-year-old has recently signed a one year deal with Buffalo after finishing a tumultuous time in New England where he was released following being placed on the injured reserve list in January.

Spikes took to twitter to talk some more trash to his former team: "Great games on the schedule for 2014, but it's going to be like Christmas to hand the #Patriots #PatriotsNation a L...twice! #BILLSMAFIA"

The linebacker didn't stop there by reiterating the fact he was looking forward to facing the Pats: "it's icing on my cake to hand the #Patriots two big L's this year. #justwatch"

The real controversial moment came just a minute later when he tweeted a simple message saying: "4 years a slave"

The reference to his four seasons in New England were obviously fuelled by his release from the franchise, initially it was believed that both Spikes and the Patriots left on mutual terms but Spikes' agent later denied it was a joint decision.

Spikes also reflected on his early years in the NFL with the Patriots and when asked during a radio interview about his time with the team, he responded with: "I wouldn't say happy."
