Bills' Spiller announces selection of agent
As if the Buffalo Bills weren't busy enough on Saturday, the deadline for rosters to be brought down to 53 players, one of the men firmly on their roster announced some news of his very own. Former first-round pick and running back C.J. Spiller tweeted that he has finally joined forces with an agent to represent him.
Spiller has signed with Chad Speck of Allegiant Athletic Agency, ending a period of over three years in which he did not have an agent. The person he had originally signed with, Gary Wichard, passed away in March of 2011.
The team's top running back is entering the final year of his contract, and previously expressed that he aimed to have an agent in place ahead of the start of the regular season. Spiller, 27, has rushed for 3,021 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first four seasons in the NFL.
