Linebacker Takeo Spikes was released by the San Diego Chargers.

The 15-year veteran played the past two seasons with the Chargers, but is 36 and wasn't expected to return to the team next season.

Spikes has played in 219 career games, with 1,737 tackles. He has posted 11 career 100-tackle seasons.

"Takeo is a true professional and a class act," said Chargers general manager Tom Telesco. "We're grateful for his many contributions to the Chargers organization, both on and off the field, and wish him nothing but the best in the future."
