Former Clemson standout and NFL free agent running back C.J. Spiller has agreed to a deal with the New York Jets on Tuesday evening according to multiple reports.

In two games with the Seahawks in 2016, Spiller had three rushes for nine yards and had five catches for 43 yards, but he was released after rookie C.J. Prosise returned healthy from his injury.

The Saints signed Spiller to a four-year, $16 million deal last offseason 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 with the Bills and Saints, Spiller had 704 rushes for 3,433 yards with 12 rushing touchdowns and 4,867 yards from scrimmage and 20 total scores. In 2012, Spiller was named to the Pro Bowl.
