The New York Jets are sending another offensive player to the Pro Bowl. The team announced on Wednesday that running back Chris Ivory will replace the injured LeSean McCoy in Hawaii — his first career Pro Bowl appearance.

Ivory had his best season ever in 2015, rushing for 1,070 yards and seven touchdowns, both of which are career-highs. He also added 217 yards receiving.

This could be Ivory’s final game in a "Jets uniform," as he’s set to be a free agent in March. The Jets haven’t said whether they’ll re-sign the veteran running back or not, but there’s no doubting the impact he had on offense this season.

There were few running backs better than Ivory early in the year. He rushed for 460 yards in his first four games and led the league in rushing yards per game at one point. His spot in Hawaii is well deserved.
