Bills to speed up Spiller's progress soon

Bills running back C.J. Spiller’s slow introduction to the team’s offense may last roughly two days.

The No. 9 overall pick signed on Friday, and the team has worked him into the mix slowly thus far.  Following the team’s off day on Sunday, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Bills will start to integrate Spiller into the first team offense.

Fred Jackson figures to remain the starter into the season, but head coach Chan Gailey will want his most explosive offensive talent on the field plenty.  Spiller already looks like the team’s top option on kick and punt returns, another sign he will be used differently than most first-round picks at running back.

With Spiller in the mix, Marshawn Lynch again looks like a spare part on the team’s run-first offense.

    Dump Marshawn, a UFL team could use him.

    Please, if you don’t think Seattle or another team wouldn’t give him a chance you’re stupid.

    It would be shocking if Spiller wasn’t the primary back on the Bills. Fred Jackson is a good change of pace back, and Marshawn is the odd man out. It is too bad because Marshawn is looking strong in camp this year.
    C’mon, Seattle trade for Marshawn. He is well worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick. As a starter he would be a 1000 yard back for the next 4 – 6 years.

    spiller will be used as a running back and also a slot receiver, leaving most of the running duties to lynch and jackson. I would guess Spiller gets 5-10 carries per game and since Jackson is a bit older for a running back, Lynch will get ample opportunity to prove his worth.

    Lynch will be a MONSTER this season. Look for him to be the one to punch it in for ’6′ once the Bills get in the red zone.

    spiller is not gonna be the typical back fred and marshawn will still be doin a majority of the running back duties, spiller is a home run type back so more swing passes and things like that
