Saints sign C.J. Spiller

NFC South Update

C.J. Spiller is now a Saint agreeing to a four-year $18 million deal with $9 million guaranteed. The Saints continue to wheel and deal this offseason trading away pass catchers Kenny Stills and Jimmy Graham while re-signing running back Mark Ingram and now acquiring Spiller. The Saints seem to be changing offensive philosophies going to more of a run based approach with the moves they have made thus far. Head coach/offensive play caller Sean Payton will utilize Spiller as a change of pace back behind Ingram and in the passing game ala Darren Sproles. It will be interesting to see if the Saints target a receiver in the first round of the NFL draft as Brees has been left with an aging Marques Colston, a diminutive Brandin Cooks and little used Nick Toon at wideout.
