Saints extended restricted free agent RB Chris Ivory a second-round tender.

It's a shame. Barring an unlikely trade, the Saints will hold Ivory hostage for a fifth season. Although Ivory has annually outperformed Mark Ingram whenever healthy, Ivory's draft status has continually kept him lower on the depth chart than the 2011 first-round pick. Ivory remains a "hold" in dynasty leagues. He's 25 years old and should hit unrestricted free agency in 2014.

The only person holding Ivory hostage is himself.

Saints put 2nd Round RFA Tender on RB Chris Ivory.

According to Larry Holder on Twitter.

Any team signing Chris Ivory would have to give the Saints a 2nd round draft pick as compensation if the Saints did not match offer sheet.

Interesting.

If someone offers a 2nd, I'll do naked backflips in front yard.

I suspect we'll accept a 4th or 5th

Not totally tue. If they asked us to include a lesser pick, we have the option of agreeing to it.

I can't see any team giving up a 2nd round pick for him, but as stated by Danno; the Saints can accept a lesser pick and a 4th would be awesome.

I haven't found verification, but a lot of posters more knowlegable than me have said we can do that.

The 2nd rounder is just insurance for us. We can negotiate less if we want.

I sort of think part of their reasoning here is to show other teams that they're seriously not willing to part with him for less than about a 5. I don't know how much or even if this will affect our cap for this year. I suspect that even if it costs them a little more right now they're probably willing to absorb that in order to get more picks in a draft that is deep in a lot of areas.. and I do believe there are teams who would give a 5 for him.

Can you have your avatar do the naked backflips instead?
