Chris Ivory: Jacksonville Jaguars cut veteran RB

With Leonard Fournette as the clear-cut lead back, it was only a matter of time before the Jacksonville Jaguars cut ties with veteran running back Chris Ivory, and that time came Friday as the Jacksonville Jaguars announced they released Chris Ivory as part of a series of roster moves.

No, he's not a fit.

After topping 1,000 yards with the New York Jets in 2015, Ivory signed a five-year, $32 million free agent deal with the Jaguars in 2016. Last season saw him put up less than 400 rushing yards while averaging just 3.4 yards per rush.

At this point Tion Green, Detroit's own undrafted-power-back-with-size-and-hands, is more likely to play a vital role in advancing the ball on the ground for the Lions than Ivory.

T.J Yeldon (116 receptions in three seasons) and Corey Grant (6.6 yards per carry over the last two seasons) will now step in as Fournette's primary backups.

While the future of quarterback Blake Bortles will be the hot-button issue facing the club until a decision for 2018 is made, the reigning AFC South champions released running back Chris Ivory.

Mathers signed with the Jaguars as undrafted free agent a year ago, but landed on injured reserve in August after sustaining a cervical spinal cord injury during practice.

Pinkard had one reception for five yards in four games last season for the Jaguars.
