Spiller has been off and on Kansas City's roster since the preseason; he's now been signed four different times by the Chiefs this year. Spiller's return is an indication Charcandrick West (concussion) will miss Thursday night's game. Oct 16 - 4:23 PM

Chiefs released RB C.J. Spiller.

The move makes room for RB Akeem Hunt, who the Chiefs apparently like more on special teams. Spiller has now been released three times by the Chiefs in the last two weeks.
Sep 16 - 12:14 PM

Chiefs re-signed RB C.J Spiller.

It's the third time the Chiefs have signed him. Spiller will go back to being the No. 3 back behind Kareem Hunt and Charcandrick West. His contract isn't guaranted since the move comes after Week 1.
Sep 8 - 7:11 PM

Chiefs released RB C.J Spiller.

OL Jordan Devey is also being let go. In the span of five days, Spiller has been cut by the Chiefs, re-signed and released for a second time. Charcandrick West will back up Kareem Hunt in Thursday night's opener at Foxboro.
Sep 7 - 2:33 PM

Chiefs re-signed RB C.J. Spiller.

It appears the Chiefs were targeting a running back on waivers Saturday and Sunday, but they weren't able to land one, and so they're resorting to Spiller as a No. 3 back behind Kareem Hunt and Charcandrick West. The Chiefs would still be smart to look into Jonathan Williams or Jeremy Langford, who were both cut Sunday. Those waiver moves would be processed on Monday.
Sep 3 - 3:37 PM

Chiefs released RB C.J. Spiller.

Spiller couldn't crack the roster even with lead back Spencer Ware (knee) out for the season. The 30-year-old managed 46 yards on 11 preseason carries. With Spiller out, Charcandrick West will serve as the main backup to workhorse Kareem Hunt.
Sep 2 - 3:35 PM

The Kansas City Star suggests the Chiefs could keep up to four running backs on their 53-man roster.

Spencer Ware and Kareem Hunt are locks while Charcandrick West and C.J. Spiller are battling for No. 3. Spiller has been a standout at camp, looking like his "old, blazing-fast self," while West turned seven carries into 113 yards on Saturday night and remains a locker-room favorite. Even if Spiller makes the team, it's unlikely he'd see enough snaps to warrant fantasy consideration.
Aug 20 - 10:21 AM

The Kansas City Star suggests C.J. Spiller has a chance to win the Chiefs' No. 3 running back job.

Asked if he's lost a step, 30-year-old Spiller replied, "No, but that's for everybody else to decide." Spencer Ware is the lead back and third-round pick Kareem Hunt's job is safe, so Spiller would have to upend Charcandrick West to win one of the top-three running back jobs. West has nursed an ankle injury in recent practices, so Spiller has been running with Kansas City's third-team offense.
Aug 7 - 5:14 PM

New Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller says he feels the best he has in years.

The way Spiller tells it, he's never been right physically since he left the Bills after the 2014 season. That was certainly borne out by his usage with the Saints, Seahawks and Jets. Going on 30, the formerly-dynamic talent is most realistically competing with Charcandrick West for No. 3 duties in Kansas City.
May 23 - 7:15 PM

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.
Feb 24 - 10:11 AM

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.
