As we profiled on Buffalobills.com today, C.J. Spiller is going to continue to have a major role in Buffalo’s offense even though things didn’t go according to plan in 2013 thanks mainly to a high ankle sprain injury. Spiller was also asked about his usage as a pass receiver moving forward.
“Yeah I mean anytime you can try to get the ball and try to help your team win you always want to do that. This is the first year in the offense so we’ll go back and look at some things and see what we can do,” said Spiller.
Spiller made it sound as though he was free to provide some feedback to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett about splitting wide more often as a receiving option heading into next season.
“We’ll bounce ideas off each other and try to see if we can split me out wide and do certain stuff,” Spiller said. “If we’re able to do that then that’s fine, but if not I can’t sit around and holler about it. I have to just do what’s asked of me and first and foremost I’ve got to run the ball effectively. Then we’ll get the passing game going. We have so many weapons on the offense it’s just crazy then what we had in previous years. That’s probably one of the reasons why I’m not going to have as many passing yards because of what we have in the receiving room.”
