Brandon Spikes Compares Playing For The Patriots To Slavery

New England Patriots vs New York Giants

Brandon Spikes, who spent four seasons with the New England Patriots after being drafted by Bill Belichick & Co. in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, isn’t holding back his strong feelings about his former team now that he’s a member of the Buffalo Bills.

The linebacker, who signed a deal with Buffalo as a free agent last month, took to Twitter on Wednesday to throw some jabs at his former squad and their fans.

But the haymaker came here, when Spikes linked playing for the Patriots to being a slave:

I mean, everyone knows Bill Belichick is strict and often-times cold-blooded, but slavery? Really? Maybe someone should remind Spikes he made $3.21 million during his tenure in New England. That’s not exactly the compensation too many slaves were used to back in the day…

The Bills probably wish they included a “no tweeting” clause in that contract they gave Spikes this offseason.
