The Kansas City Chiefs have released former Clemson running back C.J. Spiller. Again.
Spiller produced no yards on two carries and didn't haul in either of his two targets in Thursday's 31-30 loss at Oakland, and he was released by the Chiefs Monday. Spiller has been with the Chiefs on four different occasions this season.
The Chiefs signed Spiller during the offseason, cut him when the rosters trimmed to 53 players early September, re-signed Spiller after an injury, released him and then re-signed him last week. Thursday's action was the first he's seen this season, and could still be in the Chiefs' plans if there is another backfield injury.
Last season, Spiller saw limited game-action with six carries for 18 yards with six receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown in short stints with the Jets and Seahawks after being cut by the Saints soon after the finish of training camp.
The Saints signed Spiller in 2015 to a four-year, $16 million deal as a free agent. He finished the season with 36 carries for 112 yards and 34 catches (on 44 targets) for 239 yards and two receiving touchdowns.
Over 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 Buffalo in 2010.
