BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The Buffalo Bills have come to terms with rookie first-round pick C.J. Spiller.

The Bills have not released the terms of the deal, however ESPN reports Spiller signed a five-year, $25 million contract that could escalate to $37.5 million.

Spiller has been absent from camp while the two sides reached an agreement.

Spiller, the 9th overall pick out of Clemson is expected to report to St. John Fisher College early Friday afternoon.

Spiller led the Atlantic Coast Conference in all-purpose yards with 7,588 in his career, finishing second in NCAA Division I history.
