According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bills hosted free agent running back Chris Ivory on Monday.

Ivory was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday. Ivory was the main backup running back to rookie phenom Leonard Fournette last season, rushing for 382 yards on 112 carries. However, Ivory was scratched for the Jags’ two playoff games in 2017, including a 10-3 win vs. the Bills.

But Ivory went to Jacksonville with some high expectations.

Ivory spent the past two seasons with the Jags. He lead the AFC in rushing in 2015 with the New York Jets and Ivory signed a five-year, $32 million contract with the Jaguars.

Overall, he rushed for just 821 yards on 229 carries in two seasons.

The 29-year-old was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New Orleans Saints in 2010.

Mike Tolbert, LeSean McCoy’s main backup in 2017, is a free agent.
