Saints News 4/24/13: Drew Brees Thinks Chris Ivory Trade To Jets Has Already Happened

In a video interview with NOLA.com, Drew says he's heard a Chris Ivory trade to the Jets has already happened but then immediately says he's "not entirely sure" about that. Larry Holder says he has checked with another source and confirmed that the trade has not yet happened. So, let the reckless speculation begin - is Drew just a little mistaken about the facts or is a Chris Ivory to the Jets trade more imminent than we thought? See video at bottom of page.
