|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Running back C.J. Spiller reportedly turned down $4.5 million per year from the Bills to return to the team in 2015, according to NBC4 in Washington D.C.
Spiller, who said Tuesday he would not return to the team after receiving the news of the trade to add LeSean McCoy, is looking for a different role as he hits free agency.
The 27-year-old is reportedly being pursued by the Jets, Dolphins, Cardinals and 49ers who played in nine games in 2014, rushing for 300 yards on 78 carries.

C.J. Spiller: 'I won't be returning to Buffalo'

|(3/3/15) Impending free-agent running back C.J. Spiller said Tuesday that he will not return to the Bills, who reportedly have a deal in place to acquire Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, the NFL Network reports.
"I won't be returning to Buffalo," Spiller said.
Spiller indicated in February in an interview on Sirius XM radio that he wanted to remain in Buffalo but that his fate was up to the team. He played in just nine games in 2014 due to a stint on injured reserve caused by a shoulder injury. Spiller finished with 300 yards on 78 carries and 125 yards on 19 receptions, scoring just one touchdown.
C.J. Spiller wants to stay with Bills, but it's up to them

|(2/24/15) Running back C.J. Spiller would like to remain with the Bills, but it's up to the team.
That was the message Spiller gave during an interview on Sirius XM radio on Tuesday. "I want to be in Buffalo," Spiller said. "There is a possibility that I can be in a Bills uniform but the ball is in their court."
Spiller also gave his approval of the Bills coaching hire, saying Rex Ryan was a great fit for Buffalo and, "I love me some Rex Ryan."
Spiller is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 10. He rushed for 300 yards on 78 carries in an injury-shortened 2014 season.
Bills meeting with C.J. Spiller's reps at combine to talk new deal
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) The Bills are hoping to keep running back C.J. Spiller in Buffalo with a new deal.
Bills general manager Doug Whaley said that senior vice president of football administration Jim Overdorf, president Russ Brandon and contract administrator Kevin Meganck are meeting with Spiller's representation this week at the NFL combine.
“We’re hoping we can close the gap and get the deal done," Whaley said, via the Bills' website.
The Bills selected Spiller with the ninth overall pick in the 2010 draft. His best season was in 2012, when he ran for 1,244 yards and six touchdowns. Injuries kept Spiller to just 300 yards and zero touchdowns in 2014.
Even so, the Bills have made it clear that their preference is to bring Spiller back.
“There’s going to have to be some work done, but I’m confident that we’ll each come to the table with an open mind and try to get a deal done that’s great for both sides,” Whaley said.
|C.J. Spiller was among the biggest busts in 2013. He was drafted as a first-round pick in the majority of leagues, but Spiller finished as the No. 27 running back in standard formats. He was outplayed by Fred Jackson, who was No. 10 in Fantasy points, and Spiller had trouble dealing with an ankle injury and likely unrealistic expectations. This season, Spiller has the chance to rebound, and we consider him a No. 2 Fantasy running back compared to a No. 1 option. If healthy, Spiller can still flash the skills that helped him dominate in 2012 when he had 1,700 total yards and eight touchdowns (he had just 1,100 yards and two touchdowns last year). Jackson will remain a detractor with the two still sharing touches, and the Bills also added Bryce Brown via trade, but the Bills want Spiller to shine based on his playmaking ability. You should plan to target Spiller as early as Round 3, but hopefully he can fall to Round 4 and present better value. If things go his way like they did two years ago then your Fantasy team will be in great shape. Otherwise, if he plays like last year, at least you didn't make another steep investment and his struggles won't be as difficult to digest.
