Since the beloved ex-Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez has come up in the news a lot recently for his letters in prison, it reminded me of something that happened the day he was convicted for the murder of Odin Lloyd. Another ex-Patriot, on that same day who was at the time on the Buffalo Bills, none other than Brandon Spikes, had some things to say about the conviction:
I personally think its wonderful that a guy like Spikes is not afraid to give his "expert" opinion on these issues and I just enjoy reminiscing in his gold mine of a twitter account. He's really tackling some pretty big landmark issues like the justice system and slavery. Another example most Patriots fans are probably familiar with:
After leaving the Patriots in free agency for the Buffalo Bills, Spikes quickly took to twitter to describe his "treatment" in New England under the Patriots system. Clearly it worked out really well for him and the Bills won the Super Bowl last year.
Too bad Spikes was not along for the ride it clearly seems like he was too busy tackling more important issues both on and off the field.
After we won, clearly he realized that the grass wasn't so greener in Buffalo(Doesn't take a genius to realize that) and he signed with the Patriots in May of last year. However, Spikes once again never fails to disappoint, and, in June, his Mercedes Benz Maybach was found abandoned on the road late at night smashed to smithereens in what was later intensified as a hit and run situation. Spikes was soon cut from the team and was unable to find employment with an NFL franchise the entire season.
Here is a photo of the Maybach taken shortly after the accident:
Better luck next year my friend.
