Wichard, Agent For Spiller, Has Had A Busy Week

With Buffalo Bills training camp set to begin in three days, we've been deluged with requests to provide updates on all relevant details pertaining to the team's two unsigned draft picks, C.J. Spiller and Torell Troup. You asked, we dug; this post will be kept up-to-date in the immediate future, as well.

Spiller's agent, Gary Wichard, has had a busy week. First, he secured a six-year, $61.5 million deal (with $43.1 million guaranteed) for Denver linebacker Elvis Dumervil. Then he negotiated a one-year deal for veteran linebacker Keith Bulluck to join the Giants. Today, reports surfaced that Wichard is at the center of an NCAA probe surrounding North Carolina and senior DT Marvin Austin, along with several other college stars. Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal is doing fine work tracking that investigation. This isn't expected to affect Spiller negotiations, but it's worth mentioning, if only tangentially.

Meanwhile, we're still waiting for word on Troup's deal, which is almost certain to occur prior to Thursday's first practice, and which was described late last week as "imminent." More details after the jump.

First and foremost, here's a reminder of the most important deals to keep in mind when considering parameters for Spiller and Troup deals.
