canuckfan Icon : (26 September 2016 - 06:25 AM) Jets fans finding out what the fans of Fitzy's previous teams already knew. Game manager at best; QB disaster-area at worst. Time to cultivate Bryce Petty or write the season off. We are behind in the conference tie breakers already as it will surely come down to that if we are to make a wild card. Yesterday was one of those games where I didn't even have the slightest feeling they were going to come back.

Jets acquire RB Chris Ivory

Five days after the Darrelle Revis blockbuster, the New York Jets continued their deal-making Friday night, acquiring running back Chris Ivory from the New Orleans Saints for a fourth-round pick (No. 106 overall).

The Jets were looking for a big back to replace Shonn Greene, who signed with the Tennessee Titans. Ivory was effective in a limited role with the Saints, but he became the odd man out in a crowded backfield.

The Jets are expected to sign Ivory to a long-term contract, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

"He's a very physical, violent runner," Jets general manager John Idzik said. "He's got size, he's got speed. He runs with attitude, he plays with attitude."

Ivory joins Mike Goodson (signed last month from the Oakland Raiders), Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in the Jets' nondescript backfield. Based on the current personnel, this will be the first time since 1994 the Jets enter a season without a 1,000-yard rusher on their roster.

The trade means it's unlikely the Jets will select a running back in the draft.

"It's an opportunity for me to really get the carries that I deserve," Ivory told NOLA.com on Friday night. "I put the work in every day and every week. I just feel like it's my time. ... I feel like I can go out there and do some great things with the opportunities I'll be given, and I know I'm going to make the most of it. With every little glimpse I had in New Orleans, I did great things. If I'm getting more than six and seven carries a game, the sky is the limit for me.

"I can do some great things and put up some crazy numbers in New York."

Ivory signed his one-year, $2 million tender last Friday, the final day of restricted free agency, to set the stage for the trade. He visited with the Jets 13 days ago, but they never had any intention of signing him to an offer sheet and surrendering the required compensation -- a second-round pick.

Ivory was the Saints' leading rusher in 2010 with 716 yards, but he has been plagued by injuries, and slipped to fourth on the depth chart behind Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles.

The Saints had only five draft choices -- they were docked a second-rounder in the bounty scandal -- so they were motivated to acquire additional picks. Ivory (6-foot, 222 pounds) has only 256 career carries, but he has been effective in a limited role. He has rushed for 1,307 yards and a 5.1 yards-per-carry average.

Late Friday night, the Jets added another veteran on offense, agreeing to terms with former Detroit Lions guard Stephen Peterman, a league source confirmed. It's a one-year contract. Terms weren't immediately available.

Peterman, who recently visited with the Jets, has 86 career starts, including every game over the last three seasons. He will compete with Willie Colon, Vladimir Ducasse and rookie Brian Winters, chosen Friday night in the third round.
