Ivory rushed for a career-high 716 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie in 2010, but injuries and a loaded backfield that includes Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram has limited his work the last two seasons in New Orleans. The restricted free-agent offer from the Saints is for one year at $2.023 million, according to The Times-Picayune. If Ivory signs an offer sheet with the Jets, the Saints have five days to match the offer. They would receive a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft if they didn't match the offer.
