Chiefs Cut C.J. Spiller

The Chiefs have released running back C.J. Spiller, a source tells Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star. Spiller had a strong camp and appeared likely to make the cut this week.

It’s possible that the Chiefs have their eye on another running back to fill that third spot behind rookie Kareem Hunt and Charcandrick West. They’ll be without Spencer Ware for 2017 after he suffered a season-ending knee injury, including a torn PCL and damaged LCL.

Spiller caught on with KC in February after being cut by several teams. The former first-round pick was slated to make only the league minimum.
