NFL Injury Report:
While the New Orleans Saints have admitted to shopping
fourth-string running back Chris Ivory this offseason, general manager Mickey
Loomis told reporters – including Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune – that “no
deal is imminent.”
Loomis adding no deal is imminent in trading Ivory away.

There have reportedly been a few teams interested in Ivory,
one being the New York Jets. New Orleans would certainly be interested in
cashing Ivory in for an additional pick in the upcoming draft if able,
considering they have three running backs in front of him on the depth chart.
This could happen, as Loomis has said that trade talks have
taken place between the Saints and other teams. While a deal isn’t imminent,
discussions could heat up on draft night, if a deal isn’t reached sooner.
At this point, there is speculation that the Jets are
willing to hand over a fifth-round draft pick for Ivory. Rather than take a
late-round selection, the Saints could retain Ivory and hope that someone
becomes more desperate closer to the start of the season.

Floyd is use to the exposure as he was a High School American coming from Philadelphia, PA and was invited to the US Army All American game.

Today I'm going to touch on something that suddenly came to me whilst watching NFL Total Access. I was sitting there thinking about the Draft coming up and how bad the Jets are going to be this year, and I got to thinking, "I would not at all be surprised if they went 0-16". That lead me to think that it would not happen because every year, without fail, any team in...
While nothing has been consummated between the New York Jets and the New Orleans Saints, you still get the feeling a deal for running back Chris Ivory will be complete before the NFL Draft or shortly after the Draft begins.According to ProFootballTalk.com, Saints general manager told reporters on Tuesday that he had in fact talked to the Jets about possibly trading the backup running...
Going into the draft on Thursday the Saints will be picking 15th barring any trades (possibly with the Jets at 9 or 13??). Based on that, I've listed 15 players below that I consider as tops on the Saints' big board. We know that, no matter what, at least one of these 15 players below will be available. I didn't include players like QB Geno Smith, G Chance Warmack or...

Sorry for Partying. That phrase has become synonymous with one of the most explosive Tight Ends to hit the NFL in recent years and though the media makes it sound like fun, we fantasy owners are not amused. Whether it’s having a shirtless dance off after the Super Bowl, hooking up with a Lolita in Aruba or whatever it is he’s doing here, Rob Gronkowski has always been one...
