Brandon Spikes is a self-proclaimed changed man. During a Super Bowl media session Wednesday, the Patriots linebacker told me he has cleaned up his act since joining the Patriots, as he finally “grew up” after college. While Spikes might be big and scary up the middle, he’s just as anxious as the rest of us would be in his position, as he’s having trouble sleeping at night. Check out my conversation with Brandon, who was wearing his plaid pajama bottoms to the interview session. Classic.
