Soon-to-be free agent C.J. Spiller isn’t sure where he’s going to land.
But seeing his old coach Chan Gailey land with the Jets has given him another potential destination to think about.
Spiller told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that the Jets bringing in Gailey as offensive coordinator would be a coup, and something to make him consider the team.
“There is that familiarity between me and him in that offense,” Spiller told the Daily News on Thursday. “So that would be a perfect match. Who knows what can happen, but I’d be foolish not to have those guys on my list. I had my best years in the league with Chan. So it’d be dumb not to give it serious thought.”
Spiller averaged 6.0 yards per carry, had 1,703 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns in 2012 under Gailey, but wasn’t able to repeat that under Doug Marrone.
“When you look at guys on that roster, Chan’s going to find ways to get those guys the ball and move them around,” Spiller said. “That’s the thing that I love. He loves moving his guys around so they can keep defenses off balance.
“In Buffalo, he had so much on his plate. I can only imagine the things that he’s going to be able to do now.”
And if the Jets decide to spend money this offseason, they might be able to do them with Spiller.
