Kansas City released Spiller on Saturday, but Chiefs general manager Brett Veach indicated the veteran back could be re-signed before the start of the regular season. That’s now the case, and Spiller will play alongside Kareem Hunt and Charcandrick West in Kansas City’s backfield.

Spiller, a first-round pick back in 2010, spent last season with three clubs: the Saints, Seahawks, and Jets. While the 30-year-old hasn’t had a truly productive season since 2013, Spiller reportedly played well during camp and could be a surprise contributor in 2017.
