The Jets continue to address their offense on Friday, this time trading their fourth-round pick to the Saints for running back Chris Ivory. The Jets have had their eye on the 25-year-old power back for some time now, and coveted his skills following the departure of Shonn Greene to fill the void. Alongside Mike Goodson, a free agent the team acquired from the Raiders, the two should get a bulk of the carries in Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast offense. Ivory has gone underutilized in New Orleans' offense, buried underneath Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas. Despite previous injury issues, he will get his chance to break out with the Jets.
