The New York Jets are in need of a running back to fill the void left by Shonn Greene and to upgrade the offense for the 2013 season. Chris Ivory, an underrated back acquired from the New Orleans Saints, should be the man to win the starting role.
With three years of experience as a backup, Ivory is ready to begin carrying the load for an NFL team. His past seasons have been limited by injuries, yet for now at least, Ivory is healthy and looking promising.
Circumstances kept Ivory hidden from national awareness in New Orleans. However, that is going to change now that he is in New York and in position to become the primary back. It remains a four-man competition for the starting job, but I will give you five reasons Ivory will be the back we all care about this fall.
