BY NICK ST. DENISAll Chris Ivory wants is an opportunity, and now that he's out of the New Orleans Saints' crowded backfield and into the New York Jets' thin tailback corps, he'll get one.After drafting quarterback Geno Smith in the second round and a guard in the third, Gang Green added a third offensive piece by trading their fourth-round pick to the Saints to acquire Ivory's services. (photo: Mark Runyon | Football Schedule)Ivory wasted no time getting himself fired up for his shot at a top tailback gig."I just feel like it's my time," he told Friday night. "... I feel like I can go out there and do some great things with the opportunities I'll be given, and I know I'm going to make the most of it. With every little glimpse I had in New Orleans, I did great things. If I'm getting more than six and seven carries a game, the sky is the limit for me."I can do some great things and put up some crazy numbers in New York....

Saints Nation: Saints Trade Chris Ivory to Jets, Trade up in Draft for John Jenkins

That was a crazy scenario of events that just happened. The Saints were able to milk out a 4th round draft pick out of the Jets for Chris Ivory, but they then used that pick and coupled it with their own 4th round pick to move up in the third round and draft nose tackle John Jenkins out of Georgia. Wow. Jenkins is a big big man in the 350 pound range, and as much as you hear me talk...

Jets Trade for New Orleans RB Chris Ivory

It's Official. The New York Jets have parted with a 4th round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, in exchange for Saints RB Chris Ivory. Ivory had been subject to much trade speculation, as he has shown much talent and promise in limited 'go's' in the Saints offense. With such a crowded backfield with Pierre Thomas, among others, the Saints were willing to deal the...

New York Jets Trade For Chris Ivory

The New York Jets completed a long rumored trade today, securing New Orleans Saints running back Chris Ivory for a fourth round pick from the New Orleans Saints. Ivory has averaged 5.1 yards per carry throughout his career, with his best season coming in 2010 when he had 137 carries for 716 yards with 5 touchdowns. An immensely physical runner with big play capability, Ivory immediately...

Jets acquire RB Ivory from Saints for 4th-rounder

The New York Jets have acquired running back Chris Ivory from the New Orleans Saints for a fourth-round draft pick. The Jets were rumored for weeks to be in the mix for Ivory, even after they signed versatile Mike Goodson as a free agent. New York now has Ivory, Goodson, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in their backfield. Ivory was undrafted out of Tiffin in 2010 and wound up leading...

Jets trade 4th round pick for Chris Ivory

The New York Jets finally pulled the trigger on a trade for Saints running back Chris Ivory. New York traded a 4th round pick to New Orleans in exchange for Ivory. The Jets originally only wanted to give up a 5th round pick, but they clearly gave in to get the guy they wanted.  There are still plenty of good backs left in the draft, but the Jets likely decided to go with Ivory because...

Fantasy Football Alert: New York Jets trade for RB Chris Ivory

In recent seasons, I have looked away from drafting any running back from the New York Jets on any of my fantasy rosters. That will be different this season after the team traded for restricted free agent running back Chris Ivory of the New Orleans Saints. Ivory should be expected to carry the bulk of the load for the Jets in 2013 and should be considered as a solid RB 2 next season...

Saints Nation: Presenting the 2013 New Orleans Saints Draft Class

Another year of drafting is in the books and here is the draft class the Saints have added to their roster this season. Overall, I just want to say that the Saints killed this draft. Of course I'll reserve full judgement until we see how these players develop, but the goal of the exercise is always to improve competition and your overall roster and I feel the Saints absolutely...

Saints Nation: Post Draft Thoughts

I went 1-5 in my picks with the Saints getting Terron Armstead, OT from Arkansas Pine-Bluff, so at least I was able to predict one correctly before the draft. While we are on Armstead, I like the pick for where the Saints got him in the third round. He gives us a highly athletic left tackle that may or may not start in the first year but will be there when we need him to be, and...

St Paul Saints to hold umpireless exhibition game

The St Paul Saints of the American Association indy league are at it again. The Saints have been known for goofy promotions for years, and on May 11th against the Gary SouthShore RailCats, they're going to crank things up to another level and play without umpires. Balls and strikes will be called from behind the mound by a judge, complete with a robe and a gavel that he&...
