Now that Buffalo Bills’ running back C.J. Spiller is entering his fifth year, he can become a free agent after the season.
Spiller is friends with safety Jairus Byrd, who left the Bills to sign with the New Orleans Saints, and says he will ask Byrd for advice about the free agency process.
“It’s my first rodeo. I’ll take advice from guys that have been there before. I’ll reach out to Jairus [Byrd] and see how he handled it,” Spiller told Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “I haven’t talked to him. I’ve seen him this offseason but I will [reach out] eventually.”
Bills’ fans shouldn’t fret yet – Spiller said he was open to remaining with the Bills.
“I would. There’s not too many guys that can say that they’ve played [their whole] career at one spot,” he said. “But at the same time, you’ve got to be a realist with yourself and understand that this is a business, as well. But my goal — I would love to stay here and finish my career — but who knows how it’ll play out.”
Spiller rushed for 933 yards and two touchdowns on 202 carries last season.
