Chris Ivory has never had a healthy season
Its a shame too because if this guy could play 16 games and get the lions share of runs, I think he could put up close to AP numbers.

The only thing he lacks is vision. If he would cut as hard as he hits he may be able to last the season.

Perhaps someone will coach him better.

Bottom line we cannot afford him at 2mill. Dont forget we have cadet back there at approx 480k this year. Granted he's probably half the player of Ivory. But quite frankly, we do not need more backs outside of PT, Ingram, and Sproles.

Re: The New Orleans Saints can Afford to Keep Chris Ivory, but Will They?

If we ever truly want to develop Ingram as a featured back, we need to move Ivory. You don't spend multiple picks and draft a running back in the first round if that's not your intention. As much as I love Ivory, it's what we should do.

Trade Ivory for another draft pick.........maybe that's why Loomis is keeping Ivory around.

I do not care who is better, who gets hurt... We do not need a 4th back in our present situation.

The Line up should be PT, Sproles, and Ingram. If you get rid of any other back besides Ivory to get down to three and you'll be looking for another during the season.
we still have cadet or is he listed at WR

even if we let Ivory go I almost 100% gurantee we're going to sign a Undrafted Rookie RB regardless what happens in 2013 we will have four backs the question is will one of them be Ivory

Re: The New Orleans Saints can Afford to Keep Chris Ivory, but Will They?

Someone posted in another thread about us checking out Spencer Ware from LSU if he goes undrafted. He's a big bruiser and I've lamented us letting go of Joique Bell (same general style) to the Lions since it happened
