Running backs get hurt often. I'm sure the Saints coaching staff feels better knowing that if someone does get hurt, they've got one of the best back ups in the league.

STOP!! with the TRADE Talk! we wont get anything for a UDF RB! who hasnt played in a regular season game since last year Unless we REALLY need a defensive player the market for rb's are so LOW it's crazy Marshawn Lynch highest trade offer was a 4th RD pick rb's come a dime a dozen well at least that's what the League thinks and plus we need him more than he needs us

This is common for coaches to say. Just like when Tom Coughlin said they weren't trading Shockey.

Re: Joe Vitt: "Chris Ivory aint goin' nowhere"

The thing is, Ivory is ideally a short-yardage & goal-line RB, and we almost always PASS in those situations. Whether this is contrary to tradition (or common sense) is inconsequential, it's simply what the Saints do.

Ideally, you'd think we'd amass a stable of 3rd-down backs (Sproles, Thomas) because we have no history of "pounding" the ball, and show no interest in developing such a history. What do we need a short-yardage RB for???

Nailed it. We'd be lucky, very lucky to get a 5th or 6th round pick for Ivory.

1-Hasn't played all year
2-Has a reputation for fumbling
3-Coming off a serious foot injury
4-Poor in pass protection
5-Doesn't play special teams
6-Has a reputation for being made of glass

Why would anyone give us a decent player or a decent pick for this guy? I'd rather keep him for injury insurance because our other RB's haven't proven to be very durable either. When PT and/or Ingram get hurt later this season, we'll be glad we have Ivory to fall back on.

He is making $540k a year.


The reason no one would trade for him you ask? ... He is a RFA in 9 weeks.

Why would any team give up anything of value for him right now?
