Buffalo Bills first-round draft pick running back C.J. "Lightning" Spiller has officially chosen to wear #21 for the Bills and his jersey is now available at The Bills Store at Ralph Wilson Stadium and at the Eastview Mall location in Victor, NY.
The Ralph Wilson Stadium store is open Monday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and the Eastview Mall store is open Monday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
"He is a playmaker," said Bills GM Buddy Nix. "A guy that creates field position and scores points and he is exciting. We need some excitement, somebody that can make a big play and create things on their own."
Spiller is thrilled to be with the Bills, appreciates the history of the team, but also wants to put his own stamp on the future of the Bills.
"I'm very excited that they (Bills) made that decision," said Spiller. "It's one they'll never regret. I'm going to come in there and I'm going to work hard. Whatever my role is my main focus is just winning the Super Bowl, getting to the Super Bowl, bringing back the glory days that used to be up in Buffalo," said Spiller.
Spiller is expected to be in attendance for the team's rookie mini-camp to be held Friday, May 7-Sunday, May 9.
