It was a bit of a surprise in some quarters when the Saints cut C.J. Spiller before the start of the season.
Maybe it shouldn’t have been, because he hasn’t been able to hold down a job since.
The Jets are the latest to release the former No. 9 overall pick, announcing the move today.
Payton did say that the door on Spiller was not closed in New Orleans, and it appears that they have given up on Murphy while Lasco is still unhealthy. I'd also like to point out that Spiller is basically on a minimum salary deal now.
Don't know if I necessarily WANT it to happen, but I wouldn't be shocked if it did happen.
