He has yet to play a down or find out who he will be taking handoffs from in the regular season, but good fortune continues to follow former Saints running back Chris Ivory in New York City.
First, there was the nice little three-year, $6.9 million he signed with the Saints, which helped pave the way for his trade to the Jets.
Then, there was the little matter of running back Mike Goodson being arrested on drug and gun charges.

First, we’ll give him the "Story of the day."
Then, we’ll Jets fans something about Ivory that Saints fans already know: Whenever Ivory gets a chance, he always comes up big.
