He signs, he's cut, he signs he's cut. I just want him to have one solid year before calling it quits.

Its all about money that they have or don't have to pay certain players. Just a classless way to do things. So what is Spiller now...a part-time player for the Chiefs?? Come on!!

I not sure what Spiller wants to do now at this point of his career...but I hate to say it... if he wants to still play full time...once again he needs to find a new team who wants and needs him full time if he wants to play full time.

Good luck CJ....you deserve all the happiness.

I wonder how the pay structure in his contract changes if he is resigned after week one? Other than the full guaranteed amount, I mean. Any contract experts here?

Here’s why the Chiefs released C.J. Spiller again before kickoff against Patriots
BY TEREZ A. PAYLOR
tpaylor@kcstar.com
SEPTEMBER 07, 2017 2:00 PM

With Thursday night’s season-opening kickoff fast approaching, the Chiefs released running back CJ Spiller and offensive lineman Jordan Devey.

For Spiller, 30, it was the second time in less than a week that he found himself released by the Chiefs.

The unexpected move left the Chiefs with just two running backs — rookie Kareem Hunt and veteran Charcandrick West — on their active roster for Thursday night’s game at the New England Patriots.

Here’s why the move happened: As veterans, Spiller and Devey’s contracts would become guaranteed for the entire season if they were on the 53-man roster for the Chiefs’ first game. The Chiefs could conceivably re-sign both players on Friday for the same deals, non-guaranteed.


A different procedure was at play the first time the Chiefs cut Spiller this preseason (last weekend). Cornerback Steven Nelson is nursing a core-muscle injury that includes a 6- to 8-week timetable for recovery, meaning he won’t miss the season but wouldn’t be included on the active roster, either. Players can only be placed on injured reserve with a designation to return if they make the 53-man roster at the end of the preseason, and Spiller’s release created a spot for Nelson.

The Chiefs have two running backs stashed on their practice squad: the newly acquired Akeem Hunt, formerly of the Texans, and Devine Redding. But neither were expected to be activated for Thursday night’s game.

"One" of the very best RB's I've ever seen anywhere or any time...imho.

Sad to see him wasted at Buffulo with no great Olines & his nagging injury issues.

He's resilient & lijed by many and a fav of DaBO 4Sure so no future problems..and certainly has $.

Thanks. Hopefully Hunt's performance doesn't alter what seems like the Chiefs original intent to sign CJ after tonight's game.

This is beyond stupid. I've never pulled for the Chiefs and now have even more reasons not to.


C.J. - I think you need a new agent...***
