Jaguars agreed to terms with RB Chris Ivory, formerly of the Jets, on a five-year contract worth $32.5 million.
This one came out of left field. T.J. Yeldon was the 36th pick in last year's draft, but the Jaguars obviously don't view him as a 20-plus touch-per-game back. Yeldon rarely got opportunities in the red zone as a rookie, with the Jaguars instead opting to go pass-heavy inside the 20-yard line or give looks to fringe RBs Toby Gerhart, Shoelace Robinson, and Jonas Gray. Ivory projects to now handle scoring-position work in a timeshare with Yeldon, who averaged 4.1 YPC in 2015. Yeldon also battled a couple of nagging injuries, including a sprained MCL. Ivory hasn't had health on his side in his career, either, but is a downhill power runner for OC Greg Olson. We suspect he'll log 11-16 touches per game in Jacksonville. Mar 8 - 9:59 PM
