Saints News, 3/26/15: Sean Payton Considered Reggie Bush But Loves C.J. Spiller

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: “His cutup is unbelievable,” Payton said of breaking down Spiller’s film with the Buffalo Bills. “And I’m not talking about last season because I think it became challenging, but you go back a couple of years and start looking at his screen reel, a sweep reel, a return reel. So when you watch his film you think of a lot of things he can do."
