A durable Linebacker throughout his lengthy NFL career, Takeo Spikes recorded over 1,400 Tackles over his career, which saw him go to the Pro Bowl twice. The 2006 Ed Block Courage Award winner holds the dubious distinction of having played the most games in the National Football League without ever having tasted a playoff game. Without ever playing in January, it is hard to see Spikes becoming a serious Canton contender.
