Former Clemson standout C.J. Spiller was released by the New York Jets on Tuesday according to team officials.

Spiller appeared in four games with the Jets totaling three rushes, one reception, and had five kickoff returns for a 19.1 average.

The Saints signed him to a four-year, $16 million deal last offseason as a free agent. He also had a stint with the Seattle Seahawks this season.

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.
