The Kansas City Chiefs had their final round of cuts to get down to their 53-man team on Saturday and former Clemson standout running back C.J. Spiller was among the large group of players released according to multiple reports including the Kansas City Star.
Spiller had a great camp with the Chiefs and should be picked up by another NFL team needing a veteran running back or get the opportunity with the Chiefs as a practice squad participant.
In 2016, Spiller has six carries for 18 yards with six receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown with short stints with the Jets and Seahawks after being cut by the Saints soon after the finish of training camp.
The Saints signed Spiller to a four-year, $16 million deal in 2015 as a free agent. He finished his injury-plagued 2015 NFL season with 36 carries for 112 yards and 34 catches (on 44 targets) for 239 yards and two receiving touchdowns.
For his NFL career, Spiller had 704 rushes for 3,451 yards with 12 rushing touchdowns and 4,867 yards from scrimmage and 20 total scores. In 2012, Spiller was named to the Pro Bowl as his most productive NFL seasons to date were with the Buffalo Bills. He was selected in the first round by them in 2010.
Brett Veach just said veteran RB CJ Spiller could still end up on the #Chiefs roster.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) September 2, 2017
