Mark Ingram Officially Out In New Orleans After Ravens Sign RB To 3-Year Deal
Mark Ingram's time in New Orleans is officially over.
According to a report from NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Baltimore Ravens have signed the longtime Saints RB to a 3-year deal worth $15 million.
On Tuesday, Schefter reported that the Saints would be signing Latavius Murray to a four-year deal worth $14.4 million. The contract with Murray all but confirmed that Ingram wouldn't be returning in a black and gold uniform next season.
As the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner, Mark Ingram was a first-round draft pick for the Saints in 2011. Over the last eight seasons, Ingram was a two-time Pro Bowler and will finish his time in New Orleans (for now) as the franchise leader in rushing touchdowns (50) and second in total rushing yards (6,007).
His best season came in 2017 when he rushed for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns. When Alvin Kamara joined the team, he and Ingram formed instant chemistry in the backfield as one of the best 1-2 punches in the league. Fans and players will miss their energy and Mark's infectious presence in the locker room.
This is how Ingram's partner in crime reacted to the news of his deal with the Ravens.
We wish Mark the best and will always consider him to be a part of the Who Dat Nation. Forever a Saint, thanks for the memories, Mark! Good luck in Baltimore (but take it easy on us when we play you guys.)
