Chris Ivory left Buffalo headed for Cleveland, where he interviews with the Browns today, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

The Jaguars cut Ivory last week.

Ivory, who turns 30 next month, rushed for 382 yards and a touchdown on 112 carries. He has rushed for 4,852 yards in eight NFL seasons.

The Browns could lose running back Isaiah Crowell in free agency.

Ivory could have more visits before he decides where he wants to spent next season.

  1. Ivory would be worth the money just to run up the backs of the soft OL in training camp to toughen them up. This is assuming Todd Haley will set the tempo this year, instead of Hue Veteran Day Off Jackson, and emphasize the run game starting with training camp.

  2. This has Haslam written all over it. Sign this guy for peanuts and let Crowell walk instead of paying fair market price.

  3. Vontae Davis went to Buffalo and then Cleveland on FA visits and now Chris Ivory. Makes sense, they are only 175 miles apart on the I-90.

  4. Ahhhh, that good ol’ Browns personnel philosophy…

    Let the potentially great 4.1 ypc player walk, and replace him with the old 3.4 ypc guy who can’t carry the load and will be out of the league in a year.

    WINNING!!

  5. He hasn’t hit the over 30 club yet and he is already learned the ways of the mercenaries. Dang it I meant to say veterans. This guy still has a 4.4 ypc for his career. Oh wait a minute numbers mean nothing lol.

    Yeah…no. First off the guy is coming in for an interview. That doesn’t mean he is going to be signed. The Browns need an RB1 and he needs a job. Where I come from that is called smart business by both sides.

    Second though, Crowell, while showing spurts here and there, is not a true 3 down back – by any stretch of the imagination. He won’t be walking because of money. He will be walking because he is not a true 3 down back. I personally like him, like his occasional bursts. But I as a fan want someone more consistent and explosive out of the backfield. This isn’t a “Haslam play.” This is good football.

    Uninformed (dumb) comment. 4.1 ypc isn’t good first of all. It’s middle of the pack. And while I don’t support signing Ivory (and no one said the Browns would), Crowell can’t carry the load either. He is a 2 down back at best, not a full time run carrier. I think the Browns are smart to see if he has gas (zero risk and you have no idea the dynamic in the RB room on his former team), but it doesn’t mean there will be a signing.
