Whoa! That is a big drop for a player who was a real weapon.

Didn't see that coming. What is up with that guy? He looked fast and making cuts again in preseason. I thought it was a conflict of a personal nature with the Saints, but there may be more to it. :idunno:

I really wish this guy had worked out. He is the prototypical Payton offense type of back and he seemed to have his burst back.

I wonder if we will ever know exactly what happened between him and the team.

Man, that "Spiller scored a touchdown" thread would be a goldmine of fun right about now...

Hey, you never know...

(Sept 14th) More importantly, the head coach indicated Spiller returning to the team is not out of the question.

"I think he's going to have an opportunity, sooner than later, with another club," Payton said. "And yet, the window I know in this building or this club is not permanently closed."

Could it be even possible that Spiller really has nothing left and The Saints FO was correct in releasing him?

Released veterans rarely succeed elsewhere and FA signings are a 50:50 proposition at best. Our management has been on par with the rest of the league recently. We just went all in 5 years ago in restructuring contracts, won a SB, and came up a little short in the next couple seasons (bountygate hurt). Now we have a lot of dead cap and all mistakes are amplified.

Drew Brees I think outlasted our expected window and now we look silly but trying to maximize his years from 28-33 seems pretty reasonable.

This is just baffling, not the releases, but what has happened to Spiller that got him to this point? I keep thinking back to the long TD pass in OT last season. He looked like he was gonna turn the corner after that, then we waited, and waited and ???

There has to be something pretty unusual to explain it. Confuses the heck out of me.

I would love to have him back if whatever that issue is is resolved. But the coaches know what's up I guess.

Here we go. Can't embed...screw you NFL.

So sweet to beat Dallas in OT, lol. I'll always love Spiller for that play, Brees' 400th TD pass too.
