Chiefs GM John Dorsey said C.J. Spiller's "speed and twitch" are back.
Spiller's career has gone off the rails since leaving Buffalo but Dorsey has been impressed by what he's seen from him this offseason. If the 29-year-old makes it out of training camp, he'll fill a change-of-pace role behind Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. There's no fantasy appeal here. Apr 21 - 2:12 PM

Chiefs signed RB C.J. Spiller.

Spiller has name recognition, but he hasn't been a factor on the field for years. He was a massive free-agent flop in New Orleans in 2015 and bounced around between the Saints, Jets, and Seahawks last season before eventually being released in December. Spiller will turn 30 before the season. He'll try to carve out a pass-catching role in K.C., but we won't hold our breath.

Jets waived RB C.J. Spiller and WR Jeremy Ross.

Spiller was briefly on the field for last night's humiliation, but ended up playing only 32 snaps in a little more than a month as a Jet. Now 29, the 2010 first-rounder has been released by three teams this season. His NFL future is looking bleak. It's a shame for a formerly-dynamic playmaker who could never quite get over the hump.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said it is "too early to tell" if C.J. Spiller will be active this week.

Spiller was just added on Tuesday, but he should be able to pick up the scheme quickly after playing for OC Chan Gailey in Buffalo. Even if he is active, Spiller will just be a special teamer. Bowles made it clear Matt Forte and Bilal Powell are still the Jets' top two backs.

Jets signed RB C.J. Spiller.

Rather absurdly, the Jets are waiving Knile Davis to clear space after he was on the roster for a few hours Tuesday afternoon. Spiller was cut by the Seahawks six days ago. Bilal Powell didn't appear to aggravate his toe injury in Week 8, so the reason for Spiller's addition seems to be little more than adding depth. Spiller is reuniting with his former Bills coach Chan Gailey.

Seahawks released RB C.J. Spiller.

Spiller probably saw the writing on the wall Sunday night when he was a healthy scratch against Arizona. With passing-down back C.J. Prosise finally ready to contribute after missing time with a broken hand, the Seahawks deemed that Spiller was no longer necessary. Spiller produced just 51 yards and a touchdown on eight touches during his month-long stay in Seattle. The 29-year-old will try to land a backup gig somewhere else.

C.J. Spiller is inactive for Week 8 against Arizona.

Spiller is a healthy scratch. The Seahawks will go with C.J. Prosise as their third-down back behind Christine Michael. Also inactive for Seattle are RB Thomas Rawls, SS Kam Chancellor, CB Kevin Pierre-Louis, OG Rees Odhiambo, TE Luke Willson, and DT Quinton Jefferson.

C.J. Spiller caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Spiller lost three yards on his lone carry. Spiller nearly scored a 26-yard touchdown in the second quarter, but got taken down at the two. Spiller has looked fine as a Seahawk, but hasn't done enough to bury a rehabbing C.J. Prosise (hand). He's not much of a PPR asset.

C.J. Spiller rushed two times for 12 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for five yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 4 win over the Jets.

Spiller was signed earlier in the week but was immediately active over C.J. Prosise as the No. 2 back. Spiller didn't do a whole lot, but did play a series in the red zone in the first half and caught an eight-yard touchdown to get the scoring started for the Seahawks. Spiller isn't yet worth adding in 12-team leagues.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll declined to say if C.J. Spiller will be active this week.

Spiller was just signed on Wednesday. He’s still learning the offense, and doesn’t project for more than a limited role if he plays. C.J. Prosise (hand) practiced fully all week and is listed as questionable.

Seahawks signed RB C.J. Spiller to a one-year contract.

Spiller visited with the Jets and Packers before signing. He was a healthy scratch for the Saints in Week 1, and spent the last two weeks out of football. Spiller hasn't been productive since 2013, but lands in a great situation in Seattle. He will be in the mix for a passing-game role behind Christine Michael with Thomas Rawls (fibula) and C.J. Prosise (hand) sidelined.

Free agent C.J. Spiller will work out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Spiller played for OC Chan Gailey in Buffalo and had the best season of his career in Gailey's final year as the Bills' head coach in 2012. Spiller amassed 1,703 total yards and eight touchdowns in Gailey's spread scheme that season. In New York, he'd be insurance behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.

Free agent C.J. Spiller is visiting the Packers on Tuesday.

The Packers' rushing attack is off to a slow start, but Spiller wouldn't help with that. Eddie Lacy and James Starks have combined for only five passing-game targets. Spiller would help with that. Of course, Spiller didn't help with anything during his brief time in New Orleans.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's JP Finlay reports the Redskins are not interested in free agent RB C.J. Spiller.

Washington certainly could use some help in the backfield, but they have a solid passing-game option already in Chris Thompson. Spiller will find a new home, but it is unlikely he earns a big role no matter where he lands. Spiller has not had more than 425 total yards in a season since 2013.

Saints released RB C.J. Spiller.

Signed to a "four-year, $16 million" deal in March 2015, the writing has been on the wall for Spiller in New Orleans since pretty much his first game. Brutally ineffective and in the doghouse last season, Spiller got showcased for a trade this summer before being a healthy scratch for Week 1. He simply never meshed with coach Sean Payton and Drew Brees' offense. Spiller is an on-paper home run hitter, but now 29 with just 776 yards from scrimmage over the past two seasons. He'll get another chance, but will be on a short leash.
