NFL Notes: C.J. Spiller, Dolphins, Eagles, & Jets

C.J. Spiller

Josina Anderson spoke to a source with knowledge of C.J. Spiller‘s situation regarding the LeSean McCoy trade.

It was certainly surprising,” Anderson’s source said. “[The Bills] often indicated that they wanted [C.J. Spiller] back, but obviously they value Shady McCoy more than C.J.

Regarding how they think Spiller took the news:

He’s alright. We’ve been discussing maybe it’s kind of time to look elsewhere other than Buffalo. But he is a loyal kid, so in the back of his heart-of-hearts he thought maybe I can go back and be a part of this Rex Ryan regime. He has some sense of loyalty to the fact that [the Bills] drafted him 9th overall, but a lot has changed since he’s been there. So for us, maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. He’s still processing the personal part.

Dolphins

Eagles

  • Michael Schottey reports that the Eagles would have cut RB LeSean McCoy, and were just calling around to find “anything” in return for him.
  • According to Schottey, the Bills only took 20 minutes to say yes.

Jets

Rich Cimini of ESPN writes that Jets free agent ILB David Harris probably made some extra money now that the Bills traded LB Kiko Alonso for RB LeSean McCoy.

The Bills were expected to have interest in Harris even before Alonso was trade. However, they’re now left with an obvious whole to fill at linebacker, which could lead to Rex Ryan making a push for him former player.

Cimini adds that this could force the Jets to offer Harris even more in terms of salary, as they can’t afford to lose him in free agency.

  • Even though the Bills informed RB C.J. Spiller that he won’t be back with the team next year, Cimini doesn’t expect the Jets to target him in free agency.
