Ranking the Saints: #8 C.J. Spiller

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

He could become Drew Brees' most important weapon.

Coming at number eight is a newcomer to the saints -- running back C.J. Spiller.

Spiller wasn't originally in the Saints offseason, but once he became available Sean Payton had to have him.

Listening to Payton talk all offseason, you can sense that Spiller will be a major chess piece in the Saints offensive arsenal.

His diverse skill set will be utilized rushing, returning and especially receiving out of the backfield where the absence of Darren Sproles clearly hurt the Saints in 2014.

Spiller will step in immediately to fill that role and should have the same impact... perhaps even more.
