Report: There are 'strong indications' that Jets will acquire Saints RB Chris Ivory

Running back Chris Ivory @ivory_29, who was a restricted free agent, signed his one-year, $2 million dollar tender offer from the Saints on Friday. But at this point, it would be a surprise if he plays for the Saints this season. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports that there are "strong indications" that the Jets will strike a deal to acquire Ivory. Cimini says the Jets would be willing to part with a fifth-round pick to get Ivory, but he admits it's unknown if the Saints will take that compensation. Cimini also doesn't mention any trade talks between the two teams.

Fantasy Analysis:

Still, Cimini wrote on Twitter that he thinks a trade here is "likely." Ivory has taken on just 256 carries in his three-year career, but he has averaged more than five yards per. If he gets traded, he would become the favorite to open the season as the Jets' top running back, ahead of Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell. The Saints would still have Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas, and Mark Ingram in their backfield.
