C.J. Spiller to get more time at wideout

Tim Tebow isn’t the only 2010 first-round pick who will play some receiver.

With Bills wideout Roscoe Parrish lost for the season, running back C.J. Spiller is expected to be used more and more as a receiver, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

It’s already a given that Spiller will serve as the team’s primary punt returner.

Though Spiller gained 63 yards on only four carries against the Raiders, Fred Jackson has become the team’s workhorse.  He leads the NFL in rushing, with 229 yards.

Spiller gives the team another weapon, and if he’s willing to do whatever he has to do to get on the field, he could be a difference maker for the Bills.

And maybe the running back will eventually convert full time to wideout, like a former Bills receiver known initially as Bobby Moore, and then later as Ahmad Rashad.
