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...
