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.
