Former Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is embracing his new role as “enemy” with Patriots fans. Earlier today the big linebacker went on a mini twitter rant against the Pats. Here are his tweets:

I found this last tweet the most interesting. Everybody knows that Bill Belichick is strict with his players, but Spikes saying that he was a slave while in Foxboro may be taking it a little too far. Spikes received a lot of playing time, and more importantly, he was part of a winning culture for four years.

As a football player, I am happy the Pats decided to let him go. Spikes is an elite run stopper, but is absolutely awful in pass coverage. New England will be much better off with Jamie Collins starting in Spikes’ place in 2014.
