C.J. Spiller: I'm Pretty Sure Chip Kelly Has My Agent's Number

Mar 4, 2015 10:35 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles could have a need at running back with their trade of LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills.

The trade effectively ended the tenure of C.J. Spiller with the Bills, but it could create an opportunity for him to join the Eagles.

"I'm pretty sure that Chip (Kelly) has my agent's phone number so I'm pretty sure we might have to make a call over there," he said.

"I've never been in that type of system before," referring to the Eagles' hyped offensive attack, "but I don't think I'd have any problem adjusting to it."

Doug Marrone Looking Ahead At Work With Jaguars

Feb 6, 2015 1:09 PM

Doug Marrone is looking forward to the coming season as offensive line coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and doesn't want to dwell on his decision to walk away from the Buffalo Bills.

Marrone acknowledged that he was baffled at a former assistant coach's claims that he was self-centered, selfish and greedy.

 

The clause in his contract that allowed him to leave the Bills while being guaranteed his $4 million salary in 2015.

"At the end of the day, I had two outstanding years in Buffalo," Marrone said Thursday in his first public comments since leaving the Bills. "I think that Terry and Kim Pegula, they're going to be outstanding. I really can't say enough for the people within the organization, from the trainers, from the PR department, from the equipment people. They were outstanding. At the end of the day, I had a three-day window on my contract, which was obviously difficult because of the time aspect of it. My family and I made a decision to leave.

"I talked to Terry a couple of weeks ago. We had a good conversation and made the decision to [opt out], and we're not looking back and we're moving forward. Really, that's as simple as it is."
