5 Perfect Landing Spots for Top Remaining NFL Free Agents

Greg Hardy

Brandon Spikes to the 49ers

The 49ers are losing linebackers by the week. Patrick Willis and Chris Borland both retired, unexpectedly, and suddenly the defense’s strength is a major question mark.

Spikes has been outstanding in New England and most recently in Buffalo as a run stopper, and most importantly he fits a major need by the team out by the Bay.

Reports indicate Buffalo wants Spikes back, but as a role player. Perhaps the linebacker-needy 49ers would be willing to give him more freedom in their defense.
