Spiller a good bet to remain on the roster?-- Mon Feb 1 7:25 pm --
Will be cheaper to keep than to cut prior to June 1
C.J. Spiller's first year in New Orleans was a flop, partly because of a minor knee surgery he underwent during training camp. But if the Saints cut him before June 1, he will actually count more against the cap ($5.3 million) than if they keep him. So there's a good chance they'll give him another summer to regain his spark.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:With Mark Ingram, Spiller, Khiry Robinson and Tim Hightower among others on the roster, the expectation is the Saints will be able to "downsize" at running back this season. There is still much mystery as to why Spiller became such an afterthought in his first year in New Orleans. An injury-free offseason will be huge for Spiller, who could be a late-round fantasy value this summer if he is able to seize the Darren Sproles/Pierre Thomas role many thought he might earn last year.
