LB Spikes motivated to help run defense
Buffalo’s defense finished in the top 10 overall in 2013, but when it came to run defense they were right where they’ve been all too often the last several years, 28th in the league. The Bills gave up 129 rushing yards a game last season, which is part of what prompted the club’s most recent additions at linebacker in free agency. Most notably Brandon Spikes, who is beyond motivated to dramatically change the run defense ranking for Buffalo.
Grading Dolphins’ Early FA Signings
While the start of the 2014 regular season is roughly six months away, the beginning of the free agency period has been very kind to the Miami Dolphins.
