Bills Sign RB Chris Ivory To Two-Year Deal Worth Up To $6M


Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bills are signing veteran RB Chris Ivory to a contract on Tuesday.

  • According to Ian Rapoport, Ivory gets a two-year contract from the Bills worth $5.5 million and includes $3.25 million guaranteed. In total, Ivory’s contract can top out at $6 million, according to Rapoport.

Ivory recently visited with the Bills and Browns.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Ivory to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.

Ivory, 29, originally signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent back in 2010. He spent three years in New Orleans before he was traded to the Jets for a fourth-round pick.

Ivory signed a five-year, $32 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed with the Jaguars back in 2016. He was set to make base salaries of $5.5 million and $6.75 million over the final two years of the agreement when the Jaguars released him last week in a move that freed up $3,687,500 of available cap space.

In 2017, Ivory appeared in 14 games for the Jaguars and rushed for 382 yards on 112 carries (3.4 YPC) to go along with 21 receptions for 175 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.
