New Orleans Saints Rumors: Expect Mark Ingram Move in the Offseason
Mark Ingram’s career with the New Orleans Saints has not exactly worked out like everyone thought it would. Ingram was the Saints’ top pick of the 2011 NFL draft and there was much hype surrounding him. Ingram had just won the Heisman Trophy as a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide and it seemed like he would have a promising career in the NFL. However, things have not exactly worked out for Ingram so far.
Ingram’s career has been plagued by a number of injuries; he’s just not been able to stay on the field. However, last season Ingram did play in every Saints’ game, but he only rushed for 602 yards and five touchdowns on 156 carries. This season Ingram has only appeared in six of the Saints’ 11 games this season, and despite his 145 rushing yards explosion against the Dallas Cowboys, Ingram really hasn’t done much this season.
I would be surprised if the Saints didn’t look to move Ingram in the offseason, especially since they are already so deep at the running back position. Pierre Thomas is proving he can be an every-down back and Darren Sproles is a solid No. 1 ball carrier. Furthermore, undrafted rookie running back Khiry Robinson has shown flashes of greatness this season. The point is, Ingram still has some trade value and the Saints can afford to let him go to try to acquire another player or even a draft pick or two.
Ingram is still a viable NFL running back, but I think a change of scenery will benefit him and the Saints.
