06:30 PM ET 04.27 | The New York Jets have made some moves these past few days. First, they deal cornerback Darrelle Revis, and now tonight, they traded fourth-round pick (106) to the New Orleans Saints for running back Chris Ivory. This is a good move by the Jets, who were looking to replace Shonn Greene. Chris Ivory is fast, strong, agile and, when given the chance, proved he is a capable running back that can make the big plays. For unknown reasons, Ivory did not see playing time until later in the 2012 season, buried in the New Orleans roster. The third-year running back's stats don't jump out of the page, with 40 carries (his longest a 56-yard run) for 217 yards and two touchdowns in 2012. What is noticeable, though, is his 5.4 yards per carry that it equates to. In three years Ivory has played 24 games with 10 starts, carrying the ball 256 times for 1,307 yards (5.1 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns. Ivory has the ability to make the homerun plays and can keep the chains moving with his bruising running style. Ivory will join newly acquired running back Mike Goodson (from the Raiders), Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell.

When a player hear that he's been drafted by or traded to the Jets he's got to wonder what in the world he did to deserve this? Welcome to football's version of the Hotel California....you can't ever leave.
