Free Agent RB Chris Ivory Visiting Browns Tuesday

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is now reporting that free agent RB Chris Ivory is visiting with the Browns on Tuesday.

Ivory just met with the Bills on Monday, so it appears as though his market is starting to pick up ahead of free agency.

It’s worth mentioning that signing him 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.
