Jets give RB Ivory $10M deal, plan to feature new acquisition

The Jets acquired Chris Ivory from the Saints for a fourth-round pick on Friday and are expecting him to be a feature back for them.

Ivory had signed his one-year restricted free-agent tender with New Orleans, but the Jets have signed him to a three-year, $10 million deal.

Ivory is a powerful runner who shined in a limited role in New Orleans but was stuck in a deep backfield. The Jets have been looking for an upgrade at running back all off-season, and it is a significant area of need.

Before joining CBS Sports, Jason La Canfora was the Washington Redskins beat writer for The Washington Post for six years and served as NFL Network's insider. The Baltimore native can be seen every Sunday during the season on The NFL Today.
