    Thanks for the link. Looks like the deal is, indeed, getting close.

    Works for me - Saints wanted a 4th, Jets offered a 6th, so a 5th would be a nice face-saving compromise for both sides.

    I like Ivory a lot - if he can finally stay healthy, he would be a great pick-up for a 5th rounder IMHO.

    That said..The team lost Shonn Greene to free agency earlier this year and only have Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight on the depth chart at the moment If they didn't know we got Goodson their info is suspect..

    Really hoping this happens

    A 5th round pick for a RB of Ivory's talent that was severly underutilized in New Orleans?

    If the guy can stay healthy, he could be a potential stud.

    Love the idea of an Ivory/Goodson/Powell rotation, especially if we add a guy like Warmack or Cooper to the OL.

    Ivory for a 5th would be a good deal. He was under-used in New Orleans and could shine given expanded playing time. Goodson and Ivory would be a nice two headed attack.

    The sbnation article said that, but the source of their story was here:

    http://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf...ortedly_e.html

    This article pretty much consists of rumors that the Jets have upped (or will be upping) their offer for Ivory to a 5th and speculation that the Saints might take it. It's certainly not confirmation that a deal is done or even imminent.

    I say - get 'er done.

    LOL...I always take into consideration the advice of my Asst GM, Savage.

    I think we'll pull the trigger during the draft...But after yesterday the trigger finger is warmed up and ready to go...

    HUGE fan of Ivory... This is exactly the type of move to make. Hoping it's the 5th rounder or later. Personally I think the Saints have to trade him because he started to get vocal even last year about not getting enough carries.

    @RichCimini: Saints GM RT @LarryHolder Loomis said there's been plenty of talks with teams for Chris Ivory outside of the Jets and including the Jets.

    I love the idea of Ivory and I feel a 4th is well worth it

    Do it for a 5th and a 7th.

    Jets need to keep their 4th and land a starter.

    Agreed that Ivory is worth a 4th, but still think it's worth holding out for a 5th.

    Not sure if this was mentioned but I would think that Mcknight would be trade bait if we were to acquire Ivory. Mcknight is going into the final year of his rookie contract and I'm pretty neither he or the Jets would have interest in him staying.
