Report: Saints & C.J. Spiller Have “Strong Mutual Interest”

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that strong mutual interests exists between free agent RB C.J. Spiller and the New Orleans Saints.

Spiller reportedly visited with the Saints on Thursday, but has also come up as a potential option for the Cowboys, who just lost DeMarco Murray to the Eagles.

New Orleans has shed some cap space through several moves, including TE Jimmy Graham to the Sehawks, so Spiller could serve as a solid complement to RB Mark Ingram.

However, Florio wonder’s if the Saints will be willing to use that cap space to address another option after they just paid Ingram a four-year, $16 million deal.

Spiller, 27, was limited to appearing in nine games and rushing for 300 yards on 78 carries (3.8 YPC) to go along with 19 receptions for 125 yards receiving and one touchdown.

We have Spiller listed as the No. 36 player in our Top 1oo Free Agents list.
