Found April 24, 2013 on 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. — Larry Holder (@LarryHolder) April 23, 2013 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.

Saints Nation: When Saints Playing Down to Competition

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...
