Former Clemson standout C.J. Spiller was released by the New York Jets on Tuesday and went unclaimed during the waiver process on Wednesday.

Spiller is now a free agent and is free to sign with any team that he chooses.

In 2016, Spiller has six carries for 18 yards with six receptions for 50 yards a touchdown with his stints with the Jets and Seahawks.

The Saints signed him 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, 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.

He was selected in the first round by the Buffalo Bills in 2010.
