Mark Ingram Talks About His Upcoming Free Agency
This offseason, Saints running back Mark Ingram II is set to become a free agent.
Ingram, who turned 29 this past year, could be playing his last game as a Saint in the Mercedez-Benz Superdome this coming Sunday (Jan. 20).
The eight-year veteran was drafted to the Saints in the first round in 2011 out of Alabama. His production at running back for the team is second only behind Deuce McAllister.
In talking about his future in New Orleans, here's what he had to say:
“I’m not looking just to leave New Orleans,” Ingram said Monday (Jan. 14). “I’m not looking just to up and leave New Orleans. My squad, you know we got a good squad. I feel like we could do this type of thing for many more years. I’m not looking just to bail out of New Orleans.
I was drafted here. I met my wife here. My children were born here,” Ingram said. “Very rarely does anybody get to spend their career in one place. I love New Orleans. I love this team. I love this organization, so we’ll see. We’ll see what happens. I hope we win a Super Bowl and hopefully everything works out. It’s a business, and I hope everything works out. I love it here.”
That basically means he doesn't want to go anywhere, but the deal would have to work for both Ingram and the Saints. Let's hope his productivity remains, and he's able to ink something good for both parties!
