As expected, enigmatic linebacker Brandon Spikes reported to Gillette Stadium on Monday in advance of New England’s mandatory minicamp, according to a league source.
Spikes did not take part in the offseason workout program or organized team activities, both of which are voluntary by rule. However, in NFL parlance, voluntary does not really exist. Spikes was the only player to sit out OTAs. Instead he has been working out at Bommarito Performance in North Miami Beach, a facility favored by many NFL players.
The second-round pick in 2010 is heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.
