Spiller Gets "Big Bills" from Buffalo
First-round draft pick & former Clemson & Union County high star C.J. Spiller agreed to a five-year contract with the Buffalo Bills on Friday
that is potentially worth $37 million. The running back's contract includes just under $21 million in guaranteed money, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced the deal.
Spiller, the 2006 Jeffrey Meldon/TV20 Scholar/athlete of the year, was selected ninth overall out of Clemson & took part in all of the team's offseason minicamps in May and June. But he has some catching up to do, with Buffalo installing a new offense under first-year head coach Chan Gailey. Spiller is expected to play a significant role in the scheme - as rusher and receiver - while sharing time with running backs Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch, who split the starting duties last season.
The ACC's player of the year last season finished his four-year
college career with 51 touchdowns, including 32 rushing. Listed at
5-foot-11 and 196 pounds, Spiller has dynamic speed and is unafraid
to run up the middle.
