London Fletcher's Replacement?

With the great London Fletcher '99 percent certain' he will retire at season's end, the Redskins must certainly be searching for his replacement for next year. Fletcher has been a rock for the Redskins and is surely bound for the NFL Hall of Fame. However, his departure allows the Redskins' defense to get younger and faster. Ap100826127175_medium

Nick Barnett, finishing up his 11th NFL season, is surely not the long term answer...or the short term answer for that matter. While the Redskins will look to the draft, they will also be flush with money to spend in free agency. A player that could fit in nicely on the Redskins defense is Patriots middle linebacker Brandon Spikes. Spikes is finishing up the fourth year of his rookie contract and has played really well this season. The notoriously cheap Pats will likely low ball him and allow him to hit the open market. Spikes will only turn 27 at the start of the next season, which makes him prime for a 5 year contract. He missed 8 games in 2011 to injury but has mostly healthy since. http://www.nfl.com/player/brandonspikes/496953/profile
