C.J. Spiller is expected to be part of the competition to be the Bills' kick returner this season.

Spiller hasn't returned a kick since 2011, and hasn't done it regularly since his 2010 rookie season when he averaged 23.0 yards per on 44 returns and brought one back to the house. With the Bills adding Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon to their backfield in the offseason, it could allow them to get Spiller's game-breaking ability on the field more on special teams. Marquise Goodwin, T.J. Graham, Sammy Watkins, and Leodis McKelvin are also in the mix for return duties.

The offensive coaches "seem eager" to expand the way in which C.J. Spiller will be used this season.

The Bills tried slamming Spiller between the tackles far too often last season, failing to utilize his unique open-field ability. Expanding his usage creatively to include more screens, draws and pitches will go a long way toward a rebound season. So will a completely healed ankle. The Bills' official site named Spiller one of the team's top OTA performers, noting he was fully healthy while "bobbing and weaving through would-be tacklers" and is "back to cutting on a dime."

Bills.com's Chris Brown expects the team to "let the season play out" before entertaining an extension for C.J. Spiller.

Spiller is signed for $1,748,750 in 2014, and holds a $2,196,663 player option for 2015. After an injury-marred 2013, it's in Spiller's best interest to bet on himself this year, rather than sign a below-market deal. Adds Brown, "I am encouraged that offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will diversify the ways in which he uses Spiller in the scope of the offense (this season)."

C.J. Spiller declared himself fully recovered from last year's high ankle sprain at Bills OTAs.

"I don't feel nothing, I feel great," he said. "This is the best I've felt since 2012 when I had that great year. The ankle feels wonderful." Spiller turns 27 before the season, and is eligible for free agency in 2015. The Bills seem to have scrapped the idea of utilizing Spiller as a bellcow, but he should still see 14-17 touches per game while being spelled by Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown.

WGR 550 Buffalo expects a "more defined and bigger role" for C.J. Spiller in 2014.

Spiller played 394 snaps in 2013, often at far less than 100 percent. Reporter Joe Buscaglia acknowledges that the Bills have likely given up on the idea of Spiller as a workhorse, but that OC Nathaniel Hackett now "understands where (Spiller) works best." For all the handwringing, Spiller still averaged 4.6 yards on his 202 carries last season, and caught 33 passes. He's a boom-or-bust RB2.

The Bills tried to trade up in the second round to select Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde.

The Bills couldn't make a deal work before the 49ers took Hyde at No. 57 overall, so they settled for a Bryce Brown trade.

Fred Jackson is 33 years old and in the final year of his deal as well.
