McClain deal could help C.J. talks

With the Oakland Raiders signing first-round pick Rolando McClain to an undisclosed contract, the figures should help the Bills in making further progress with C.J. Spiller.

That’s because McClain was taken 8th overall, right in front of Spiller who was ninth. McClain’s contract will set a good baseline for where Spiller’s deal should come in. Granted, Spiller and McClain (a LB) do not play the same position, and Spiller is the first running back taken in the draft, which could make things more complicated, but this is a positive development in terms of getting a deal done with the speedy back.
