It's not too much of a surprise given the Raiders have expressed desire to pair Latavius Murray with a powerful back, and there's not many more powerful than Ivory.

The 27-year-old running back led the AFC in rushing last season 1ith 1,070 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games played. 

Ivory is a big back that doesn't shy away from contact, displaying an ability to bounce off tacklers and add yards after contact.

As Caplan noted, there won't be a lack of interest in Ivory and the Raiders will certainly have some competition in signing him.
