CJ Spiller had a less-than spectacular year last season for the Buffalo Bills, but hopes he can return to his explosive form this upcoming season.
Spiller, hindered by injuries, failed to hit the 1,00 yard mark last season, after posting 1,244 yards on the ground the year before. This season, Spiller hopes to return to his 2012 season form, and Marc Sessler of NFL.com says he expects to see Spiller become the explosive back Bills fans have come to appreciate.

"Spiller is running and cutting on the ankle that bothered him all last season and told the team’s official site last month, 'I definitely feel that explosion coming back to how I was in 2012.' One former scout suggested the X-factor was never healthy during a campaign that saw Spiller fall from 6.0 yards per carry in 2012 to 4.3 one season ago. Spiller’s 456 yards after contact in 2013 were a shadow of the 742 he dialed up the year before, but that didn’t stop Chip Kelly and the Eagles from wanting him in a trade. Buffalo wasn’t about to part ways with their most explosive weapon," Sessler wrote in his column.
