12:09 PM ET 04.20 | The New Orleans Saints have re-signed running back Chris Ivory and are nearing a trade with the Jets, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN. The Jets were hesitant to sign Ivory as a restricted free agent, a tag that carries a second-round pick as compensation that would have been transferred from New York to New Orleans. The deal the three-year veteran signed with Saints for 2013 is for $2 million, but Cimini suggest the Jets would try to extend him if the trade goes through. Though nothing is certain at this point, a fifth-round draft choice has been suggested as the price tag for Ivory. Ivory has had success in limited playing time with Saints, averaging 5.1 yards per carry in his career. The Longview, Texas, native set career highs in 2012 with 137 carries, 716 yards and five touchdowns. The Jets, having lost Shonn Greene to the Titans, would look to platoon Ivory with Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight.

Do the T&R guys even know there are 32 teams in the league. I like a good train wreck as much as the next guy, but at least give some blood and gore if your gonna write only about the Jets.
