Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the recent meeting between Bills GM Doug Whaley and RB C.J. Spiller’s reps was just “introductory and preliminary in nature.”
According to Anderson’s source, there were no proposals or figures to exchanged between the two parties.
However, there remains hope that an extension could be in place by the end of the league year.
This news comes after Bills GM Doug Whaley told reporters on Tuesday that they have had “preliminary talks” with Spiller’s agent regarding a news contract.
“He’s a playmaker, and we’re trying to keep as many playmakers as possible,” Whaley said.
Spiller, 26, is entering the final year of his contract and will make $1,748,750 for the 2014 season. He should be a sought after player if he ends up reaching the open market next year.
Last year, Spiller ran for 927 yards on 201 carries (4.6 YPC) and added two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus rated Spiller as the No. 51 running back out of 55 qualifying players.
