Sean Payton hopeful about retaining RB Mark Ingram
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Despite the fact that New Orleans is $22 million above the salary cap, Saints coach Sean Payton expressed optimism about the team's chances of re-signing free agent running back Mark Ingram, per The Advocate.
“I spoke with him today," Payton told the paper Monday nght. "The good thing about Mark is that we’re real close with his agent. We work a lot with Joel (Segal). [GM] Mickey [Loomis] will talk with him quite a bit. Obviously he’s someone that we want to keep. Hopefully we can do that.”
In 13 games last season, Ingram ran for 964 yards and nine touchdowns while catching 29 passes for 145 yards.
According to NFL.com, it's unlikely the Saints can afford to bring back Ingram.
Saints weighing all options before reaching a deal with Mark Ingram
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Saints general manager Mickey Loomis told reporters he's still interested in reaching a deal with impending free agent running back Mark Ingram, but is still weighing all options reports the Times-Picayune.
"You've got to meet the requirement for getting under and then there's some planning you can do as to, what do the contracts look like for the re-signs, for the additions, for draft picks?" Loomis said. "So we're kind of in middle of that process of trying to figure out, what's the market here? Are we going to be able to re-sign Mark Ingram, for example? What's that going to look like? Where we are cap-wise is going to dictate part of the structure for these deals. So it's all intertwined. It's not like it's one thing and that follows the other; they're all kind of intertwined."
Ingram, 25, totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014, nearly notching his first career 1,000-yard season. Ingram has 2,426 career rushing yards through his first four seasons with the Saints (50 games).
"In free agency, everyone wants to see what the market is," Loomis said. "The question is, can that get done prior to March 10? Can both sides get a good feel for that beforehand and do a deal, or do we need to wait and see where all the offers are and respond accordingly?"
Mark Ingram on free agency: Saints 'definitely' want me back
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) With free agency looming, running back Mark Ingram told Katherine Terrell of the Times-Picayune on Thursday that the Saints "definitely" want him back next season.
Ingram totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014, nearly notching his first career 1,000-yard season. Ingram has 2,426 career rushing yards through his first four seasons with the Saints (50 games). He was also selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl, replacing Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who is in the Super Bowl.
Saints RB Mark Ingram to reaplace Marshawn Lynch in Pro Bowl
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/19/15) Saints running back Mark Ingram will replace Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch in the 2015 Pro Bowl, the team announced.
Ingram totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014. Ingram is the first Saints running back to be selected to the Pro Bowl since Deuce McAllister in 2003.
Don't lose faith in Mark Ingram
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/21/14) Though Saints running back Mark Ingram scored a touchdown Week 16 against Atlanta, plunging in from 1 yard out in the first quarter, he didn't have the most productive afternoon, rushing 13 times for 38 yards and catching three passes for 17. He's now run for less than 60 yards in three straight games, averaging 46.7 during that stretch compared to 101.3 in his previous six.
It's not like the Saints have turned to other options, though, which was Ingram's problem in previous seasons. Khiry Robinson was the only other running back to get any carries in Week 16, and he had just two. It's just that the Saints haven't been in a position to run the ball in recent weeks, losing big in both Week 14 and, of course, Week 16.
So what about Week 15? That's partly on Ingram. He got the carries, finishing with 17, and didn't do much with him.
The good news is that the Saints should be able to win handily Week 17 at Tampa Bay, which should mean plenty of garbage-time opportunities against a so-so run defense. Outside of maybe PPR leagues, you'll want to keep Ingram active in Fantasy.
|The party's over for Mark Ingram, the former first-round pick of the Saints. Despite recording a career-high 4.9 yard rushing average last season he hit career lows in significant categories like carries, touchdowns, first downs gained and starts. He posted one game over 10 Fantasy points and two games over four Fantasy points. That's it. We're expecting Khiry Robinson to pick up more work than Ingram this year -- that's in addition to Pierre Thomas and Travaris Cadet getting involved in the New Orleans offense. Feel free to draft Ingram with a late-round pick but after three seasons of major disappointment it would be a shock if he suddenly turned it around.
