The top free agent back is off the market.
C.J. Spiller has reached a contract agreement with the Saints, PFT’s Mike Florio has confirmed. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported Spiller had a deal with New Orleans.
Spiller was PFT’s 27th-ranked free agent and the third-best player left without a signed contract or an agreement in principle. He had played the previous five seasons with Buffalo, which traded for LeSean McCoy before the start of free agency.
Now, the 27-year-old Spiller has a new home in New Orleans, which now has enviable backfield depth, with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson both strong between the tackles and Spiller one of the game’s faster backs.
Hey, maybe Spiller can play wide receiver, too.
