At 6’0″ 220 pounds, Ivory will give the Bills that smash mouth punch in short down yardage and a compliment to LeSean McCoy.
In 14 games with the Jaguars last season, Ivory had 112 rushes for 382 yards and a touchdown.
Ivory was drafted by the Saints, playing three seasons there before playing in New York and another three for the Jets. He’s played the last two seasons for Jacksonville.
Ivory has had a history of hip and hamstring injuries, something that has plagued him throughout his career.
It’s a 2 year deal worth $5.5 million dollars, $3.25 is guaranteed.
