Baltimore Ravens make decision on former Alabama RB Mark Ingram for 2021 season
Former Alabama star RB Mark Ingram II, who won the 2009 Heisman Trophy, has spent the past 2 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
His 2019 season went much better than his 2020 campaign, as he appeared in 11 games this past fall, running for 299 yards and 2 touchdowns. He ran for 1,018 yards and 10 scores (and added 247 yards and 5 touchdowns as a receiver) in 2019.
Now, though, he’ll be on the hunt for a new team, as the Ravens will release him on Tuesday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Baltimore is releasing veteran RB Mark Ingram on Tuesday, per league sources. The move will save the Ravens $5 million against the 2021 cap and allow Ingram to get an early jump on free agency.
Ingram is healthy and believes he has plenty to offer for 2021.
