C.J. Spiller wants to stay with Bills, but it's up to them


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) 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
(2/20/2015) 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.


Bills to let C.J. Spiller test market


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Bills general manager Doug Whaley spoke to the media at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Thursday, and was pessimistic about keeping three key players off the open market. 

RB C.J. Spiller is scheduled to be a free agent in March. Whaley said "there's work to be done" on a contract. Earlier in the day, he told Buffalo sports radio station 550 AM that Spiller's 2015 option has already been voided. 

"(Senior VP of Football Administration) Jim Overdorf, (President) Russ Brandon and (Contract Administrator) Kevin Meganck are meeting with his representation right here at the combine,” Whaley told Bills play-by-play announcer John Murphy. “We’re hoping we can close the gap and get the deal done.


Report: Jets to make strong push for C.J. Spiller in free agency


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) The Jets are looking to add a free agent running back to the backfield, and are expected to make a hard push for C.J. Spiller in free agency, a league source told Metro New York.

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.


Chris Ivory to see smaller role in 2015?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Although there's a good chance the Jets will release running back Chris Johnson, running back Chris Ivory still could face a smaller role due to Chan Gailey's offense, reports ESPN.com.

Gailey's spread attack "puts a premium on a running back who can play in space and catch the ball," the website said. "That could mean a smaller role for Ivory."

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.


Bills RB C.J. Spiller has contract year void, set for free agency


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Bills running back C.J. Spiller had his 2015 contract year void Friday, CBSSports.com's Joel Corry reports.

Spiller is destined to reach free agency when the 2015 league year opens on March 10. The Bills will have a cap charge of $2,167,917 from the bonus proration attributed to 2015 on Spiller's contract. 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.


C.J. Spiller expecting 'March Madness' style free agency


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Bills running back C.J. Spiller is getting healthy again. Spiller, who has fully recovered from a shoulder injury, just ended the final season of his contract and is looking at his options for next season.

"Physically, I’m back to 100 percent, back to doing normal activities," Spiller told The Post and Courier on Friday. "As far as football, free agency will start in March, and I’ll get with my people next week and get a game plan together."

Spiller has played five seasons for the Bills, only playing two full years. He ran for 1,244 yards in 2012 with six touchdowns.

"I guess you could say it’ll be March Madness," Spiller said with a smile. "It’ll be a fun March."


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 | CBSSports.com
(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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Bills managed just 13 yards on 13 carries as a team in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders in Week 16, with running back Fred Jackson leading the team with 10 yards on six carries.

It was an absolutely abysmal game from the Bills' rushing attack with the team's season on the line. Jackson did serve as the team's leading receiver, catching nine passes on 12 targets for 93 yards, giving him his first game with more than 100 yards from scrimmage since Week 5. Anthony Dixon rushed for seven yards on three carries.

C.J. Spiller returned from a stay on injured reserve but struggled mightily in his limited playing time. He lost four yards on four carries and added four receptions for 14 yards, putting the ball on the turf once but recovering his own fumble.

The Bills head to New England for the regular-season finale next Sunday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller was able to put in limited practice on Wednesday.

Spiller has been medically cleared for contact, but has yet to be added to the team's 53-man roster. Spiller is attempting to come back from a broken collarbone, and said the team will likely make a decision on his status later in the week. "We’ll see how I feel [Thursday] when I come in," Spiller said. "If it is we’ll keep plugging away and I’m pretty sure they’ll consult with me and see how I feel and we’ll make a decision."

For what it's worth, the team has already cleared a roster spot for Spiller, releasing fullback Frank Summers. Head coach Doug Marrone admitted Spiller looked pretty good in practice as well. "I’m not going to sit up here and see he didn’t look good," Marrone said "He looked good."

Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list.

Bills RB C.J. Spiller undergoes surgery to repair clavicle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller underwent surgery to repair a broken clavicle on Monday, a procedure that will likely end his season. However, coach Doug Marrone would not provide an update on his condition moving forward, per the team's official website.

"We'll wait and see what the doctor says," Marrone said.

Spiller rushed for 287 yards on 69 attempts this season before going down with the injury in Week 7. With Fred Jackson also sidelined with a groin injury, the team will likely turn to Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown for the majority of the carries against the Jets Week 8.


Season-ending IR awaits Bills RB C.J. Spiller


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bills featured back C.J. Spiller will have surgery on his broken collarbone Monday, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora adds that the injury, which will likely land him on season-ending injured reserve, is quite ill-timed for Spiller, who was hoping to negotiate a contract extension to remain in Buffalo. A trade might also have been in order.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The initial diagnosis on Bills running back C.J. Spiller is a broken collarbone.

Bills RB C.J. Spiller exits game with apparent shoulder injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller was carted off the field in Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Vikings due to an apparent shoulder injury. He was quickly ruled out for the day and will undergo tests to determine the extent of the injury.

Spiller broke off a 52-yard gain on his first carry of the day but suffered the injury at the end of the play. He's the second Buffalo running back carted off the field in the first half after Fred Jackson (groin) went down earlier in the day.

C.J. Spiller unlikely to take advantage of solid matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller played just 12 of the team's 69 offensive snaps in Week 6, and his role makes it awfully hard for Fantasy owners to rely on him moving forward.

Spiller carried the ball a team-low six times in Week 6, after totaling at least 13 touches in each of the first five games. His dwindling role comes at a bad time, as Fantasy owners certainly would like to see Spiller get a chance to star against a Vikings defense that has completely fallen apart against opposing running backs in recent weeks.

The Vikings have allowing 30 Fantasy points to opposing backs in each of their last three games, but it is not clear if Spiller will get the chance to take advantage of that. He has failed to average more than 4.0 yards per carry in five of six games, and is tough to rely on in any Fantasy league at this point, even against a strong matchup.
