Saints running back potential trade candidate
|Running back Chris Ivory remains the only unsigned restricted free agent for the New Orleans Saints, and the reason is that he's testing his options. The bruising tailback visited with the New York Jets on Friday, according to a source. The Saints issued Ivory a second-round tender, which would be a one-year, $2.023 million contract.

FF Today's Take: If Ivory signs an offer sheet with the Jets, the Saints would have five days to match or receive the Jets second-round draft pick. Instead, the Jets would likely work out a trade agreement with the Saints for a later-round draft pick. Ivory's fantasy stock would climb if he moves to New York, where he would likely be the lead back in a committee along with Mike Goodson.
