Patriots rookie Brandon Spikes is getting some attention today for a non-football related matter: the linebacker is featured in a sexually explicit tape that is making the internet rounds.
To be honest, this is the kind of thing I like to avoid, but it is out there, and it is Spikes. We're not going to link it; if you're so inclined, I'm sure you can find it. A source confirmed it is Spikes on the tape.
Agent Terry Watson, reached a short time ago, said of the second-round pick: "Brandon is showing himself to be a high-character guy in the Boston community and has the promise of being a very good player."
UPDATE (4:35 p.m.): The NFL is investigating the matter under rules of the personal conduct policy.
