Interestingly enough, Rapoport mentions that the Cowboys showed “preliminary interest” in trading for Spiller last year. However, it seems highly unlikely that they would pursue him with DeMarco Murray playing as well as he has this season.
A few months ago, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports wrote that he expects the Bills to field calls for one of their running backs as injuries start piling up around the NFL.
La Canfora specifically mentioned that Spiller “could be the odd man out” and added that “trade market for Spiller could well develop over the next month.”
Spiller, 27, is set to make $1,748,750 for the 2014 season and should be a sought after player if he ends up reaching the open market next year.
Over the course of six games, Spiller has ran for 234 yards on 68 carries (3.4 YPC) while contributing 13 receptions for 106 yards receiving and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus rates Spiller as the No. 44 running back out of 56 qualifying players.
