ORCHARD PARK, N. Paul Kariya Jersey .Y. -- Free-agent linebacker Brandon Spikes agreed to a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills on Friday night. The Bills also said they reached terms with former San Francisco running back Anthony Dixon. Spikes had 86 tackles and an interception last season for New England, the former Florida players fourth with the Patriots. "Gotta silence the lambs, get on my Buffalo Bill! (hashtag)51 (hashtag)BILLSMAFIA taking back the (hashtag)AFCEAST (hashtag)PoWwWwW," Spikes tweeted. Hes rejoining former Patriots linebackers coach Pepper Johnson, the Bills new defensive line coach. Dixon ran for 458 yards and eight touchdowns in four seasons San Francisco, but dropped down the depth chart behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. Dixon played some at fullback after Bruce Miller was injured. Bills general manager Doug Whaley has been busy, also adding linebacker Keith Rivers, guard Chris Williams and cornerback Corey Graham and re-signing tight end Scott Chandler. Spikes is regarded as a key addition for a defence that struggled against the run last season and is under transition with Jim Schwartz taking over as co-ordinator. Schwartz replaces Mike Pettine, who left Buffalo after one season to take over as Clevelands head coach. The deal with Spikes will allow the Bills to move Kiko Alonso to an outside role, a position they believe hes best suited. Buffalo allowed 150 or more yards on the ground seven times last season. That was a glaring weakness of a defence that otherwise was solid in other areas in setting a franchise-record 57 sacks and finishing 10th in the NFL in yards allowed, Buffalos best finish since ranking second in 2004.

The Red Wings hadnt played the night before. The Boston Bruins had. A month from now, or two months from now, it doesnt matter.

A stunning strike from Mo Diame sealed an instant return to the Premier League for the Tigers as the Owls 16-year wait for a top flight return continues. But despite the heartbreak, the Portuguese manager - who was unknown in English football at the start of the season - was delighted with how his side have performed, although did concede that Hull were the better side. Im proud of the players, the club and the fans but at the same time we are unhappy because weve lost the final but football is good when we dream, Carvalhal told Sky Sports. Dejected Sheffield Wednesday players are left on the pitch I must talk in two different ways. One, I think we had a really fantastic season and nobody expected us to finish in this position. Another thing is the final, and we played against a strong team. We fight, we ran, we tried to organise but today Hull were better than us and they deserved to win.Even in the second half, we started to play a little bit better, to press higher up like we usually do but today, in this game, the details make the difference and it was a fantastic goal that did it. But you have to be very good to be at Wembley and although we lose one game in the final, in my opinion, it was with very good quality and we deserve everything we have lived so far, so I am proud.Sheffield Wednesday fans were in fine voice throughout the game, and even stayed behind after the final whistle to applaud their squad, with Carvalhal also praising them for their contribution on Saturday. Highlights of Hull v Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship play-off final The atmosphere was fantastic, as was the emotional reaction we had with the fans so when we finished the game, me and my players are very proud, he added. Nathan MacKinnon Jersey. Our fans are enjoying the way that we play and its something we want to achieve and continue this kind of work. We want our fans to be proud of the team. They pay for the tickets and they like what they are looking at.I cant say we are happy because we arent but of course, the way that we finished the game and the way that the fans greeted us with a big applause makes us ready for the next season.The Owls will face the likes of Newcastle and Aston Villa next season, as well as other established Championship clubs vying for a promotion spot, but Carvalhal will be taking it game-by-game.

What we want to stay is our brand and quality of football which we usually play better than today, but during the season we play very good football. With the results, you never know with this kind of competition so we must go step-by-step again because next season will be a very tough league with the teams that are relegated and the strong teams that we have in the competition but Im sure we will start next season better than we started this season.I think weve woken up the giant and Sheffield Wednesday have woken up. All the clubs will now respect our club like we deserve.
