Report: Bills Could Trade C.J. Spiller

The Buffalo Bills are loaded at running back, and that could leave the inconsistent C.J. Spiller as the odd man out.  Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Bills could look to move the running back if a team with a need at the position comes calling.

 I’d expect the Bills to field calls for running backs if contending teams continue to lose them (Vick Ballard and Kendall Hunter already out for the year). Buffalo has more backs than it needs, probably, and C.J. Spiller, in the final year of his deal and with no extension in sight, could be the odd man out. I anticipate Fred Jackson being a Bill for life, and he could end up with a few new years on his deal, and the speed of Bryce Brown is impressive. Anthony Dixon supplies depth. A trade market for Spiller could well develop over the next month.

The speedy and versatile running back out of Clemson has talked about being an every down back, But Spiller has simply been unable to avoid injury or pull away from Fred Jackson on the depth chart.

Spiller rushed for over 900 yards last season on 202 carries.
