Worst kept secret of the year?

BUFFALO BILLS - BENGALS DECLINE TO MATCH SPIKES OFFER
Bengals.com reports the Cincinnati Bengals have declined to match the offer sheet given to LB Takeo Spikes by the Buffalo Bills, making Spikes a member of the Bills. The Bills will owe the Bengals a first-round draft choice in this year's NFL Draft as compensation for signing Spikes.

"Takeo has been a good player for the Bengals and in the community, and I wish him good luck with his career in Buffalo," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "Today is the beginning of a new day in the Bengal organization, and in the shaping of the football team under my direction."



I wonder how good he feels about being reunited with Dick LeBeau so soon...

So the Bills have to give them the pick they got from Atlanta to the Bengals right?

If that is true than they traded Spikes for Price but in essence they traded Bledsoe for price fo therefore they traded Price and a 1st for Spikes and Bledsoe that seems like a good deal to me ;-D
