Ivory Signs With Bills; Will Work Behind McCoy
According to the team’s official website, the Bills addressed the depth at their running back position Tuesday agreeing to terms with free agent Chris Ivory on a two-year deal.
Ivory, who will turn 30 in a couple of weeks, served as a backup with the Jaguars the past two seasons, rushing for 821 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 3.6 yards per carry.
He's expected to serve in a similar role in Buffalo behind feature back LeSean McCoy.
The only time in Ivory's career when he was a starter was from 2014-2015 when he was the leading rusher for the New York Jets.
Over those two seasons, Ivory ran for almost 1,900 yards, including a 1,070-yard campaign in 2015 with 15 total touchdown both rushing and receiving.
Known as a downhill runner, Ivory brings a different dimension of power to the Bills run game to complement McCoy's elusive and darting running-style.
Still, barring injury to McCoy, Ivory will be relegated to handcuff status at best in Buffalo.
