Spiller will be able to hit the market and the market for running backs is not very good. The problem is Spiller has not done very much for Buffalo minus the year he had with Chan Gailey as the head coach. Chan Gailey had Spiller looking like he did at Clemson.
Spiller is a pending free agent and because of his background with coordinator Chan Gailey and his system, the Jets are most certainly and option. Gailey was the Buffalo Bills’ coach when they drafted Spiller out of Clemson in 2010, and he was a great fit in Gailey’s spread offense. A dangerous two-way threat, Spiller enjoyed a career year in 2012, racking up 1,703 yards from scrimmage. He spent the last two seasons injured or in Doug Marrone’s doghouse.
Spiller, 27, makes a lot of sense for the Jets. Now we’ll see if old friend Rex Ryan keeps him from walking out of Buffalo.
