Jets Want Chris Ivory To Become Every-Down Back


Sometimes being successful in the NFL is about schemes, matchups, and good fits.

Chris Ivory is hoping to become the shining example of a good fit, jump starting a career.  After signing Ivory to a three-year $10 million deal, The Jets are hoping a guy who couldn’t get on the field in New Orleans, will emerge as the team’s every-down back.

“I have real high expectations,” Ivory told Mehta. “Once I get out there, I’ll open some more eyes.”

“It’s not a challenge,” Ivory said of his ability to become the top option for the Jets.  “I know I’m capable of it.  Once I’m healthy, I know all those things will fall in place . . . and everybody will see the three-down back that I am.”

Ivory averaged 5.1 yards per carry in three years with the Saints.
