Seahawks Release Veteran Running Back C.J. Spiller

The Seahawks have released veteran running back C.J. Spiller according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

The Seahawks signed Spiller in September for depth after injuries to second-year running back Thomas Rawls and passing-down back C.J. Prosise but the veteran was able to produce just 51 yards and a touchdown on eight touches during his month-long stay in Seattle. He was lkely expecting to get the ax when the team made him a healthy inactive against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday night now that Prosise has recovered from his broken hand.

The bottom has fallen out of a career which began with such promise as the No.9-overall pick in the 2010 draft by the Buffalo Bills. Spiller never really lived up to those lofty expectations but did have a few good years in Buffalo. Now 29, he will look for another backup job elsewhere.

The Seahawks used Siller’s roster spot to re-sign fullback Will Tukuafu.
