The Packers dip their toes into the free agent market selectively, usually if they think a guy can make a big impact.
And they’re looking at one that potentially could, if he’s healthy.
Spiller was a surprise cut by the Saints — because they owed him so much guaranteed money, not because he had played so well for them.
The Packers could ostensibly use Spiller as a complement to Eddie Lacy and a return man, but the fact he struggled to pick up the Saints offense (when they invested so much in him) might have given other backfield-needy teams pause.
But the Packers are only carrying two true running backs on the roster, with veteran James Starks the only backup.
