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.
Sun, Oct 16, 2016 08:15:00 PM

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.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 05:46:00 PM

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.
Fri, Sep 30, 2016 08:11:00 PM

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.
Wed, Sep 28, 2016 06:34:00 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 20, 2016 02:46:00 PM

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.
Thu, Sep 15, 2016 09:16:00 AM

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.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 05:26:00 PM

Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed C.J. Spiller was a healthy scratch Week 1.

Payton said Spiller was sat because Travaris Cadet was going to have a bigger role on offense and rookie Daniel Lasco is a bigger contributor on special teams. With both facts unlikely to change in the near future, Spiller could find himself in street clothes often this season. Spiller is not worth holding in any formats.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 01:10:00 PM

Saints RB C.J. Spiller is a healthy scratch for Week 1 vs. the Raiders.

The Saints went to great pains to pretend they still liked Spiller this summer, but it must have been to try to create a trade market. He's apparently at the very bottom of the 53-man roster. Tim Hightower will back up Mark Ingram and get 6-8 touches. Also inactive for the Saints are LB Dannell Ellerbe, CB Sterling Moore, LB Obum Gwacham, OL Landon Turner, TE Chris Manhertz and WR Tommylee Lewis.
