His agent, Terry Watson, released this statement regarding the situation:
“It was something that occurred before he became an NFL draftee and a New England Patriot. I think for anyone it would be an embarrassing situation. Brandon has shown to many people the kind of person he is before and after being drafted in the second round. He’s hoping to put this behind him and looks forward to having a great football season.”
Regardless of when the tape took place, Spikes is still under investigation and his NFL career could still be in jeopardy.
In regards to Spikes violating the league’s personal conduct policy, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the Boston Herald “We are looking into it.”
This is exactly why anyone any man with a career in the public eye (or in the midst of pursuing a career in the public eye) should never, under any circumstances, tape themselves getting naughty under the sheets. It will ALWAYS come out – you can count on that.
Now, unfortunately, Brandon Spikes cannot necessarily count on another paycheck from the patriots.
No word on when a decision will be made regarding Spikes’ fate on the field.
Do you think Brandon Spikes deserves to be fired for making a sex tape?
