Summary

C. J. Spiller, like Ingram, signed a four-year free agent contract with the Saints before last season for $16 Million. His contract included slightly more signing bonus money than Ingram's. Spiller and his agent indicated that they were looking for best fit first and money second. His skill set seemed to be a perfect match for Coach Payton's offensive game plan, but his first season with the Saints was an unmitigated disaster. He had only one game with more than 4 carries and only one game with more than 5 targets. Spiller had averaged 35 receptions per year in his four seasons in Buffalo and with many expecting him to set a career high for receptions, he caught only 34 passes, slightly less than his average in Buffalo. He managed only 239 receiving yards on the season. His rushing average of 3.1 yards per rush was his career low and his receiving average of 7.0 ypc even included an 80-yard touchdown reception. Without that one outstanding play, Spiller would have averaged a paltry 4.8 yards per catch to go along with his career low rushing average. He might not have been fully healthy as he had his knee scoped in pre-season and did not return to the field until game two. Saints GM Mickey Loomis has said that injuries were responsible for Spiller's sub-par season. (May 21)
