Saints RB Spiller speaks of frustration about last years with Bills


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Saints running back C.J. Spiller spoke of frustration at a lack of playing time with the Bills upon coach Doug Marrone's arrival, as well as optimism about his role with his new team.

Marrone didn't believe Spiller hit holes hard enough and felt the back lost yards trying to dance around in the backfield making a big play that wasn't there, according to the Buffalo News. When the Bills broke huddle in the red zone, he was generally on the sideline - and as far away from Marrone as possible.

"It was frustrating," Spiller told the News. "I'm not going to sit here and say I was happy about the situation because I would be lying. ... Like any competitor, you want to be on the field, trying to help your team win, trying to score touchdowns. 

Spiller beleives he will receive a greater opportunity with the Saints, not only as a runner but as a pass receiver as well.

"I'm excited to get down to New Orleans," he said. "Coach (Sean) Payton knows how to get the ball to the running backs. ... At the same time, Drew (Brees) isn't going to force anything downfield, so he loves getting the backs involved in the passing game."


Sean Payton: C.J. Spiller the 'most explosive player on the field'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/26/2015) Saints coach Sean Payton is thrilled to have landed running back C.J. Spiller, who will team with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson in one of the league's top backfields.

"I think we expected Spiller to be somewhere else with a higher number. But it all worked out," Payton told The Advocate.

Spiller joined the Saints on a four-year, $16 million deal.

“His cutup is unbelievable,” Payton said of Spiller. ”And I’m not talking about last season because I think it became challenging, but you go back a couple of years and start looking at his screen reel, a sweep reel, a return reel.

“So when you watch his film you think of a lot of things he can do. He’s physical, he’s the most explosive player on the field a lot of times when you’re watching him. … So he’s an exciting player that clearly heading into free agency there wasn’t any thought about and then after that first rush there was some interest and I think to his agent’s credit they looked at it from a how he was going to be used standpoint, the system, the offense and wanting to be a part of it and we feel the same way.”


C.J. Spiller: I'd be a 'fool' not consider signing with Saints


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) During a conference call with local media, new Saints running back C.J. Spiller said he'd be a "fool" not to have considered New Orleans in free agency.

"I've been following this offense very closely," Spiller said after he signed a four-year deal, worth $18 million with $9 million guaranteed and a $5 million signing bonus with the Saints. "We tried to do some similar stuff at Buffalo early on in my career. The way that they use their running backs in general is very intriguing. If you were in my position, you would be a fool not to visit or at least see how they could utilize your skill set, especially my type of skill set."

Spiller figures to be used the same way New Orleans utilized Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas in the previous seasons.

Over his career, Spiller has 3,321 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. He rushed for a career-high 1,244 yards in 2012. Since that season, the 27-year-old has totaled only 1,233 in 24 games from 2013-14.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Spiller enjoyed his best year in 2012, playing for newly-hired Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. Spiller rushed for 1,244 yards, while totaling 459 receiving yards and eight touchdowns (six rushing) in 2012.

"Spiller will be one of the players the Jets pursue. Not just kick the tires on, but pursue," the league source said. "Chan Gailey would like him here in New York. He's the pass catching option out of the backfield that the Jets need for this offense and he's a playmaker."

Spiller played just five games in 2014 due to a stay on injured reserve caused by a shoulder injury. He rushed for 300 yards on 78 carries while adding another 125 yards on 19 receptions. He is destined to reach free agency when the 2015 league year opens on March 10.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Ivory (6-0, 222 pounds) is entering the final year of his deal. He played 42 percent of the snaps last season, compared to 37 percent for Johnson, per the website.

ESPN.com says the "ideal fit" for the Jets would be impending free agent C.J. Spiller, who had his best year, 2012, playing for Gailey in Buffalo.

C.J. Spiller: Playing for Chan Gailey 'would be a perfect match'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) While the Bills are interested in re-signing running back C.J. Spiller, they might receive serious competition from AFC East foe N.Y. Jets in trying to sign the 27-year-old running back.

That's because it appears the Jets are set to hire former Bills coach Chan Gailey as offensive coordinator, and Spiller had the best season of his career playing under Gailey in 2012. Spiller rushed for 1,244 yards, while totaling 459 receiving yards and eight touchdowns (six rushing) in Gailey's final season as coach in '12.

“There is that familiarity between me and him in that offense,” Spiller told the New York Daily News on Thursday. “So that would be a perfect match. Who knows what can happen, but I’d be foolish not to have those guys on my list. I had my best years in the league with Chan. So it’d be dumb not to give it serious thought.

“When you look at guys on that roster, Chan’s going to find ways to get those guys the ball and move them around. That’s the thing that I love. He loves moving his guys around so they can keep defenses off balance.”


GM: Bills will do their 'darndest' to re-sign C.J. Spiller


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/15/2015) Bills general manager Doug Whaley told WGR 550 the team will make a concerted effort to re-sign impending free agent running back C.J. Spiller, reports the team's website.

"We’re going to try to do our darndest to get this guy in the fold and get him back,” said Whaley. “I’m sure he’s disappointed with how last year went with the injuries, but we want him to come back with us and get back to the form we know he can play at.”

New coach Rex Ryan is already friends with Spiller. Ryan's son plays football at Clemson, Spiller's alma mater.

“I’ve met C.J. and obviously I have a great deal of respect for him having to try to stop him and things,” Ryan said. “One thing I think that he’s going to understand about me is I’m going to tell him what I believe to be the truth. All players seem to appreciate that.”

Spiller averaged 3.8 yards per carry in nine games this season and scored one total touchdown.


Bills' running game sputters vs. Raiders in Week 16
