Former Alabama Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram had a heck of a run in New Orleans but all good things must come to an end.
Ingram is expected to leave the Saints after eight seasons with the club after agreeing to a three-year deal worth as much as $15 million with the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens recently waived Alex Collins following his offseason arrest when his vehicle struck a tree. With Collins out in Baltimore, that move likely cleared the way for Ingram to become a Raven.
News of Ingram’s departure from New Orleans was first reported by ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
During his time in New Orleans, Ingram rushed for 6,007 yards and 50 touchdowns. He also caught 228 passes for another 1,598 yards and five touchdowns. The Saints selected Ingram with the 28th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft after he became the first player in Alabama history to win the Heisman Trophy in 2009.
