New York did acquire promising veteran, Mike Goodson and still have Bilal Powell but neither of them are sure things to start.
Ivory should move up to be the #1 RB with this news. He has the most potential to be an every down back and has proven to be a good back for at least a significant stretch of time. In 2010, he broke onto the fantasy scene carrying the ball 137 times for 716 yards and 3 touchdowns while Pierre Thomas was injured. He has played sparingly since, but does well when given a chance.

As many of you know I haven’t been shy about saying that getting Tebow was a mistake and while so many thought the Jets were getting a winner, it was clear that it rattled Mark Sanchez and that Tebow turned out to be anything but what his press clippings said he...
Thanks to the media, Tim Tebow is crammed down the publics throats every single chance they can get. The New York Jets releasing Tim Tebow was given more publicity on ESPN than Jason Collins coming out as the first active gay athlete in a major sport, which is pathetic given Tebow’s NFL career.
