The New Orleans Saints re-signed running back Chris Ivory, Executive VP/GM Mickey Loomis announced Friday. This news comes as the team is reportedly interested in trading Ivory for a late-round draft pick, with the Jets as trade partners. They hosted the running back last week, and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that they did indeed make an offer to the Saints. The latest report has the two teams close to a trade now that he's under contract, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN. The contract Ivory signed for 2013 is $2 million. Per the Saints' website: 'Ivory, 6-0, 222, first joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Tiffin (Ohio) in 2010. He earned a spot out of training camp on the team’s 53-man roster and led the team in rushing in 2010, carrying 137 times for 716 yards (5.2 avg.) with five touchdowns and was a consensus NFL all-rookie selection. In three seasons with the Saints, the Longview, Texas native has carried 256 times for 1,307 yards (5.1 avg.) and eight touchdowns. Ivory’s 5.1 yards per carry average ranks third in franchise record books. In 2012, he appeared in six games with two starts and carried 40 times for 217 yards (5.4 avg.) with two touchdowns, including a 56-yard scoring run that was the longest run by a Saint since 2006.'
