Mickey Loomis says no Chris Ivory deal is imminent

The pre-draft press conferences held by NFL general managers are normally short on specifics, but Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis did own up to something on Tuesday afternoon.

He admitted that the Saints have engaged in trade talk with the Jets about running back Chris Ivory. The Jets hosted Ivory on a visit before he signed his restricted free agent tender with the Saints last week and there were reports of a trade offer on the table even before Ivory put pen to paper. Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Loomis also said that there have been discussions with other teams regarding a deal for Ivory.

No deal is imminent at the moment, although there wouldn’t figure to be much action this far ahead of the middle rounds of the draft. The Jets are believed to be offering something around the fifth round and the Saints don’t need to be in any hurry to take that pick without letting the early rounds of the draft play out first.

With Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram at running back, the Saints have enough depth to trade Ivory without hurting their run game. Given their needs on defense and at left tackle, an extra pick could come in handy later this week.

Outside of their offensive line, Ivory would probably be their best offensive player. Who is better than him? Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Joe McKnight? I don't think so. They need Ivory.

If he makes it to draft day his value may go up. Then again someone could go down in training camp and him be a good trade tool then.

You can't spell IVORY without IR.

What if someone on the Saint's roster goes down like Ingram, what do we do then. PT can't carry the load and there is no other running back like Ingram and Ivory on the Saint's roster. Can't have enough depth at the RB position, you people don't remember back a couple of years ago in Seatle where a running game would have been nice.
Why would you want to trade Ivory for a 5th rd pick that may or may not even make it out of training camp next year.
IMO he hasn't been hurt as much as reported, I believe he got himself in someone's dog house.

Re: Mickey Loomis says no Chris Ivory deal is imminent

In 3 years he has only played 16 games. So - yes he does have an IR bug.

Yes he is a good player & I like him. BUT you can't hold onto a player because someone may go down. There are always injuries. Yes we needed a running game I that game. Last tear we really needed some defensive help. Who would we have traded about week 5 to have got someone on the "D"?

I disagree, PT can carry the load and had shown he can do it in both 2008 and 2009, Then we started going 4 man backfield and his carries suffered from there

PT, Ingram and sproles are the ones to stick with, please get ingram involved in the screen game and mix his runs up a little though
