 New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Friday that restricted free agent running back Chris Ivory has signed his tender offer.
 
Ivory, 6-0, 222, first joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Tiffin (Ohio) in 2010. He earned a spot out of training camp on the team’s 53-man roster and led the team in rushing in 2010, carrying 137 times for 716 yards (5.2 avg.) with five touchdowns and was a consensus NFL all-rookie selection. In three seasons with the Saints, the Longview, Texas native has carried 256 times for 1,307 yards (5.1 avg.) and eight touchdowns. Ivory’s 5.1 yards per carry average ranks third in franchise record books. In 2012, he appeared in six games with two starts and carried 40 times for 217 yards (5.4 avg.) with two touchdowns, including a 56-yard scoring run that was the longest run by a Saint since 2006.
