The Bills aren’t waiting on the start of free agency to start working on their team.

After signing cornerback Vontae Davis, they’re having another run at the discard pile, as running back Chris Ivory visited them yesterday, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Ivory was cut last week by the Jaguars, and is reportedly setting up other visits.

Ivory did his best work in the AFC East, rushing for 1,070 yards in 2015 for the Jets. but he managed just 821 yards in two seasons with the Jaguars.

He’s turning 30 in March, and would provide a solid backup option to LeSean McCoy.

    It’s unknown whether it will be for better or worse, but it seems that the Bills are undergoing a drastic remodel. With an array of early choices they’re well equipped to make a splash on draft day.

    He would start at QB in both Toronto and Oakland.

    Too bad he’s not as good as the QB for that NFL team in Toronto. Ohhhhhh, that’s right. Didn’t quite get what you wanted there, eh?

  4. hes a decrepit old rhinoceros at this point. hes on his last leg but i imagine hes still good to bulldoze straight ahead a few more times and break into the open and show his old trademark breakaway speed

  5. I’d love to see a McCoy/Ivory backfield in Buffalo. Speaking of running backs, I’d also like to see them keep Marcus Murphy… at 5-8, 193 he’s a “Sproles” type of player who has been bouncing around the league for the past 3 seasons. He played a little for Buffalo at the end of the season when rb’s were dropping like flies. Either way the Bills are starting early on fixing their problems… gotta love that!

    I know the Bills made the playoffs…but they really weren’t a very good team last year. And I say this as a fan. The numbers say they they should have been about a 6 win team. A horrible AFC and a lot of luck got them to 9 wins and the playoffs. In other words, for better or worse? They can’t do a whole lot worse. Sure, their record could be worse, but IMO it’s better to suck badly than to suck a little. 6, 7, 8 wins is the worst place to be in the NFL.

  7. Ivory can be a GREAT back, but he’s just never healthy, especially at the most important times. He’s still got it, he flashed brilliant a few times, but most times just hit the line and not the holes.

    I think once a mostly 2nd string RB hits the age of 30 and has recurring injury concerns, the “can be GREAT” train has officially left the station.

    With no team at all, Toronto has as many Super Bowl wins as Buffalow.

    Just lose baby.

    Only thing you have in Toronto is your 23 ID’s to troll Bills threads all day long and a small drawer to put your passwords in. After that, you don’t have too much do you?

    I love Toronto, Montreal and Quebec. A city is not a person. Just sayin.

  11. I get that but maybe if he was just ignored he would not get the thrill. Instead someone now trolls him just to comment about that. But it’s this Person like you agree…not the country lol.
