Spiller, Jalen Saunders, and rookie Marcus Murphy could all be in the mix on kick returns.
The return job may not be settled until the end of preseason.

Summary

C. J. Spiller is a quick twitch athlete that was drafted with the ninth pick of the 2010 draft. Despite averaging 5.0 ypc rushing, catching 159 passes and totaling 4,521 yards from scrimmage and 18 TDs for the Bills, he was very inconsistent on a week to week basis and seemed to be frequently misused. Last year was Spiller's most disappointing as his opportunities were reduced and then he suffered a broken collarbone and missed seven games. In the off-season, the Bills traded for LeSean McCoy and showed no interest in resigning Spiller. The Saints signed him to a four-year $16 Million contract and Spiller and his agent indicated that they were looking for best fit first and money second. It is interesting to note that Spiller's guarantee was higher than Ingram's. There is no doubt that Coach Payton knows how to use a player with Spiller's skills. Spiller averaged 35 receptions per year in his first four seasons and should set a career high for receptions as the Saints most productive receiver as a running back. (May 8)
