Chris Ivory was already putting on a pretty good audition to become the latest undrafted New Orleans Saints player to overcome long odds and make the final roster.

Michael DeMocker/The Times-Picayune
As San Diego Chargers Coach Norv Turner watches, New Orleans Saints running back Chris Ivory scores on a 76-yard touchdown reception during the Saints 36-21 presesaon win Friday at the Superdome.
But his offseason, training camp and preseason of strong running and quick cuts lacked that one signature play that would define his ongoing campaign.

That play came in the fourth quarter of Friday night's 36-21 exhibition win against the San Diego Chargers in the Superdome.
Ivory, a rookie free agent from Division II Tiffin (Ohio) University trying to earn the No. 3 running back position with the Saints, dazzled Saints fans, players and coaches alike when he pulled in a swing pass from quarterback Patrick Ramsey in the left flat.
At that moment, it appeared to be just another short pass to a running back. But then Ivory went to work.
He slipped by San Diego linebacker Antwan Applewhite at the 20, lowered his shoulder and ran over safety Darrell Stuckey at the 30.
The fun was just starting.
He then cut back across the field while slipping past three more Chargers near midfield, stiff-armed cornerback Brandon Hughes at the Chargers' 20 and dragged Stuckey into the end zone.
"That run was amazing, right?" Saints left guard Carl Nicks said. "That guy, he wanted a job. And I think he got it."
