Bills free agent LB Brandon Spikes has chosen to sign with the team that drafted him.
According to ESPN Patriots reporter Field Yates, Spikes has signed a one-year deal with New England.
From @AdamSchefter & me: the Patriots have signed free agent LB Brandon Spikes to a 1-year deal. Spikes spent the 2014 season Buffalo.

Spikes made a free agent visit with the Patriots last week. Buffalo was interested in bringing Spikes back at the right price, but GM Doug Whaley made it clear it would not be as a starter. Spikes is not likely to be a starter in New England either, but with the two starters in front of him coming off of injuries (Jerod Mayo – patellar tendon, Dont’a Hightower – labrum) Spikes stands a better chance of being on the field in New England.
Spikes was a second-round pick of the Patriots back in 2010.
