Chargers ILB Takeo Spikes mentioned that he expects to be back in San Diego next season, per Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune.  “I still think it’s possible,” Spikes said on Friday. “I really do.

This could change depending on what San Diego elects choose to do during free agency and draft. The post Takeo Spikes Hoping To Be Back With The Chargers Next Season appe
