Jets Acquire RB Chris Ivory


The New York Jets have traded their 4th round draft pick to the New Orleans Saints for RB Chris Ivory.  He paid a visit to the Jets on April 12th and then the trade rumors began.  Ivory was a restricted free agent who received a 2nd round tender offer.  Signing him as an RFA would have cost a second-round pick, but the Jets found a way to get him for lower draft pick.

The 25 year old running back stands 6′ tall and weighs 222lbs.  For his career he has rushed for 1,307 yards and have a very impressive 5.1 yards per carry average.  Here is additional information on Chris Ivory from the JN forums.

The Jets also signed Mike Goodson earlier this offseason.
