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, Saints general manager told reporters on Tuesday that he had in fact talked to the Jets about possibly trading the backup running back.

That lead me to think that it would not happen because every year, without fail, any team in...

Round One Focus Should be on Offense
