New Orleans Saints sign running back CJ Spiller

The New Orleans Saints sign running back CJ Spiller on a four-year deal after he was allowed to hit the free-agent market by the Buffalo Bills.

The New Orleans Saints have agreed a deal to sign free agent running back CJ Spiller.

The 27-year-old was allowed to leave the Buffalo Bills at the end of the 2014 campaign after five years at the club.

Spiller visited several teams in the opening days of the free-agent market, but opted to join the Saints on a four-year deal worth $18m [£12.2m].

He told reporters: "I've been following this offense very closely. We tried to do some similar stuff at Buffalo early on in my career.

"The way that they use their running backs in general is very intriguing. If you were in my position, you would be a fool not to visit or at least see how they could utilize your skill set, especially my type of skill set."

The back rushed for 3,321 yards and 12 touchdowns in his five seasons with the Bills.
