Seahawks To Ink Former First-Round RB C.J. Spiller


The Seahawks are looking to add depth to the running back spot, as the team is expected to sign veteran running back C.J. Spiller.

Spiller’s signing likely would not be finalized until Thursday according to the team. Pete Carroll confirmed the intent to sign Spiller in a conference call with New York media.

The former first-round back was released by New Orleans back on September 13th, two days after he was a surprise inactive for the Saints opener at home against the Oakland Raiders.

Spiller rushed for only 112 yards in very limited opportunities with the Saints last season. Spiller’s best season came in 2012 with Buffalo when he rushed for 1,244 yards and six touchdowns for the Bills.

Seattle has been thinned at running back because of injuries to Thomas Rawls (shin) and C.J. Prosise (hand).
