Eagles Cut Takeo Spikes

In a move that will free up 5 million dollars in cap space, the Eagles released linebacker Takeo Spikes. Spikes spent only one season with the Eagles after he was acquired from the Bills for Darwin Walker. This move is surprising, because Spikes was looked at as the veteran leader of an otherwise young linebacking group. Spikes was injured at the end of last year, so he could also not be recovering at the rate the Eagles had hoped.

This move had to be done to clear up enough space for the Eagles to acquire a number one receiver. Could Larry Fitzgerald be on his way to Philly soon?
