The Saints have had an extremely busy offseason due to being over the salary cap, and they have traded away offensive stars such as tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Kenny Stills as a result.
The Saints re-signed running back Mark Ingram to a four-year deal, and Khiry Robinson remains in their backfield.
Spiller showed what he’s capable of in 2012 by rushing for 1,244 yards with 459 receiving yards, but he was unable to stay healthy last season.
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter revealed the details of Spiller’s new contract on Twitter.
Saints are giving RB C.J. Spiller a 4-year, $18 million deal that includes $9 million guaranteed, per source. Last year of deal can void.
