C.J. Spiller thanks Buffalo Bills, “first-class organization”

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller was away from the team last week attending to family matters. He returned to the team on Sunday and Spiller thanked the Bills for the their support throughout the ordeal and called them a “first-class organization.”

“The way they send their support, their thoughts and prayers to everybody involved because if you don’t know, my hometown is a 1,900 population,” Spiller said, via the Bills’ official website. “It’s a small community, so when they wanted to send their condolences down to all of Union County, it speaks volumes about the organization that we have here.”

Spiller specifically thanked head coach Doug Marrone, CEO Russ Brandon, general manager Doug Whalen and his teammate and fellow running back Fred Jackson.

Now the challenge for Spiller is switching gears and focusing on the season.

“I understand that it is a tragic event that took place and it’s going to take a while to cope with,” Spiller explained, “but at the same time I can’t forget the task and the goal and the dreams that we have here as a team and an organization. I wanted to be a part of that. I’ll do everything I can to make sure I’m ready to go.”
