No no no we signed Bell that year.........

The year we signed Barber, Takeo Spikes was the other guy, now we really ****ed that one up.

I'm sure this won't become official until 48 hours from now.

I'd roll the dice on him for the right price. If he could ever stay healthy he is a tackling machine.

Flame away

There's a pretty good chance the Bills will cut Spikes now him..........I'd take him.

There was another guy from Philly that everyone was after that turned out to be somewhat of a bust after he signed his big money deal. (I can't believe I forgot his name LOL ) **EDIT** Hugh Douglas! :)


Two years ago, the Seahawks brought in former Ravens linebacker Edgerton Hartwell for a visit. From our March 2005 story: "A four-year veteran from Western Illinois, Hartwell recently told reporters that he hopes to become the greatest linebacker in NFL history. Seattle would presumably settle for 'better than Orlando Huff.' "

We then listed Seattle's succession of starting middle linebackers from 1998 through the 2004 season: Dean Wells, DeShone Myles, Anthony Simmons, George Koonce, Levon Kirkland, Isaiah Kacyvenski, Huff, Randall Godfrey, Huff (again) and Niko Koutouvides.

The Seahawks passed on Hartwell, choosing instead to draft Lofa Tatupu from USC. The Hawks were ripped for trading up in the second round to draft a player with the physical attributes of a midround pick. Atlanta paid for the proven commodity, investing $8 million in bonuses on a six-year deal for Hartwell.

The results? Tatupu has two Pro Bowls, two division titles and a Super Bowl appearance in two seasons. He has cost the team less than $2 million in bonuses. Meanwhile, the Falcons released Hartwell today after two injury-shortened seasons. The Falcons still must account for about $5.7 million in cap charges. They paid $10.28 million in salary and bonuses for 63 tackles, or more than $160,000 per tackle.

Another good reason in hindsight for not signing Hartwell is that he would have been a horrid fit in the Cover 2....if memory serves Gunther wanted him in '05 before Herm was here.

Kind of what I was thinking. Nice recall.

How old is he? Does this mean you are willing to settle for more mediocrity today?

He's right around 30.........well it depends on how much money he wants. There's also a difference with him and some of these other guys, Spikes has been a premier player before.
