Seahawks cut veteran running back C.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller's stint in Seattle didn't last long.

The Seahawks released the running back Wednesday. Seattle re-signed fullback Will Tukuafu to take the vacant roster spot.

With rookie C.J. Prosise now fully healthy and available for pass-catching reps, Spiller became superfluous.

Spiller signed with the Seahawks prior to Week 4 after beginning the season with the New Orleans Saints. In two games with Seattle, Spiller rushed three times for nine yards and caught five passes for 43 yards. He was inactive in Week 7.

While he won't provide much in the run game, Spiller put out some decent pass-catching film in his limited work in Seattle and show he can still be elusive in space. The positives from a short stint in Seattle could give him a shot to latch on with anther team dealing with injuries.
