"...However, the Daily News has learned that the Jets are not going to give up their second-round pick...the Jets will make the Saints an offer for lower draft pick compensation in a trade for Ivory, according to sources."

I think this gets done. He's a luxury we can't afford anymore.

Re: NY Jets interested in trading for Saints restricted free agent RB Chris Ivory: Sources

The Saints put a second-round tender on restricted free agent running back Chris Ivory, but the Jets are hoping to get him from New Orleans for less than that.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Ivory visited the Jets’ facility on Friday, and the Jets are interested in acquiring him. However, they are not interested in giving up their second-round draft pick, No. 39 overall, to get him. So the Jets won’t be signing Ivory to a restricted free agent offer sheet.

Instead, the Jets are hoping that they can both agree to a contract with Ivory and agree to terms with the Saints on a trade that would bring Ivory to New York for a late-round pick.

Ivory has played well in limited action since joining the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2010. In three years he has played in 24 games with 10 starts, carrying 256 times for 1,307 yards (a 5.1-yard average) and eight touchdowns. With the Saints he has struggled to get consistent playing time in a crowded backfield that also includes Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram. But with the Jets he’d have a chance of earning the starting job in a backfield that currently consists of Bilal Powell, Mike Goodson and Joe McKnight.

Chris Ivory - RB - Saints

NEWS: ESPN New York reports the Saints are indeed interested in trading restricted free agent Chris Ivory.

ANALYSIS: It's a key factor because New Orleans has held steadfastly to Ivory's rights to this point in his career despite underutilizing him, seemingly instead preferring to stash his talent. GM Mickey Loomis likely now realizes Ivory is headed for unrestricted free agency in 2014 and the Saints' best chance of receiving draft-pick compensation for him is now. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini suspects New Orleans would part with Ivory in exchange for a fourth-round pick.

I don't understand the obsession some people have with Ivory, he's decent but he's not as dynamic as sproles or pt. Ingram will be substantially better with a healthy season under payton.

Re: NY Jets interested in trading for Saints restricted free agent RB Chris Ivory: Sources

Look how often he gets injured with the limited playing time he gets here. What do y'all think will happen when the Jets give him more?

A 4th round pick is more than fair.

If I was a Jets fan, I'd be pissed off if they give up a 4th for Ivory...

Re: NY Jets interested in trading for Saints restricted free agent RB Chris Ivory: Sources

Ivory is an enigma. He's a bruising runner who has been productive when given playing time BUT in New Orleans, he's buried behind runners who fit the system better and he's battled numerous injuries. This may be a case where he's more valuable to another team than he is to the Saints.

When deciding draft compensation, the Saints need to ask themselves how much value is a 4th RB to the team compared to other depth needs, especially considering the lack of a second round pick.

Since Ivory will be a unrestricted free agent next season, if the Saints will get anything for him- now is the time. So, how much value do they expect from him this year vs short term and long term value of the pick they recieve.

I think the Saints should shop him for a fourth, but look to other teams than the Jets.

I'd hate to see him go for anything less than a 4th rounder, but I would totally understand the move if the FO decided to let him go for even less.
