The NFL is not like your fantasy league.
So no, the Bills are not trading C.J. Spiller to Bob from Accounting, no matter how many times he e-mails them.
Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said no one has contacted him about the possibility of trading for running back C.J. Spiller, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com.
“Definitively, we have not been contacted by any team about C.J. Spiller,” Whaley said. “These rumors are news to me.
“It’s exciting for you [reporters] because I guess it gives you something to fill the newspaper with. But I’ll tell you guys, and you know I’m a straight shooter, we have not been contacted by any teams.”
Much like those who wanted to send Brian Hoyer to Houston (which isn’t happening), this seems like more of a case of putting two and two together.
“I can probably see where people see our depth at running back and try to connect the dots with teams that don’t have depth,” Whaley said. “But again, no one has talked to us.”
So, if you see Bob by the water cooler, tell him to quit pestering poor Doug in the Buffalo office.
