Spiller gets knocked a lot for never really being the guy in Buffalo. Sure, he split time with Fred Jackson and their combination was more than effective for the Bills. Sure, he had that one excellent season under Chan Gailey in 2012. But can he do it consistently?
That’s what all the NFL teams are wondering right now.
Spiller has talent oozing out of every pore on his body. Yet he tends to only find success when the entire offense is geared toward him succeeding. Is that was a modern team wants in today’s pass-happy NFL? It’s a big question on many general managers’ minds right now. I think Spiller has a real shot at being great in the right situation. Just, where is that situation? Is it with the Saints?
