The Chiefs are re-signing Spiller, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. Spiller will sign with Kansas City for the fourth time in less than eight months, with the latest transaction presumably motivated by Charcandrick West's concussion. The Chiefs could deploy Spiller as a passing-down complement to Kareem Hunt in Thursday's game against the Raiders, assuming West isn't ready to play. The role likely would be temporary and doesn't seem to be of much interest for fantasy purposes. It's also possible the Chiefs simply allow Hunt to dominate snaps, given that he's proven to be more than competent as a pass-catching threat.
Spiller was once again released by the Chiefs on Saturday, Terez A. Paylor of KansasCity.com reports. The Chiefs cut Spiller in advance of Week 1 in order to avoid owing the veteran back a guaranteed contract for the 2017 season. However, they subsequently picked him back up to provide depth at an uncertain running back situation. However, with Kareem Hunt's stellar debut in the opener, the Chiefs have opted to promote fellow running back Akeem Hunt to the roster in favor of Spiller due to his contribution on special teams. The 30-year-old will now look for a new opportunity.
