During his rookie season, when injuries to Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas led to an increase in his playing time, Ivory carried the ball 137 times for a team-leading 716 yards, and average of 5.2 yards per carry with five TDs.

Last season, he played in only six games with two starts, carrying 40 times for 217 yards and two touchdowns, including a 56-yard scoring run.

Ivory's one-year tender is worth about $2 million.
