While the NFL.com report that the Eagles called the Bills to inquire about C.J. Spiller perked up the ears of Bills fans, you might be more encouraged about the outlook for Spiller’s 2014 season with Buffalo.

NFL.com’s Marc Sessler says that C.J. Spiller is one of his strong bets to bounce back big in 2014. Here’s what he wrote.

RB CJ Spiller, Buffalo Bills: Spiller is running and cutting on the ankle that bothered him all last season and told the team’s official site last month, “I definitely feel that explosion coming back to how I was in 2012.” One former scout suggested the X-factor was never healthy during a campaign that saw Spiller fall from 6.0 yards per carry in 2012 to 4.3 one season ago. Spiller’s 456 yards after contact in 2013 were a shadow of the 742 he dialed up the year before, but that didn’t stop Chip Kelly and theEagles from wanting him in a trade. Buffalo wasn’t about to part ways with their most explosive weapon.
