Longtime New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is reportedly headed to Baltimore.
Ingram is apparently joining former Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas in signing with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday. Ingram signed for three years and $15, while Thomas signed for four years and $55 million,” according to Fox Sports.

Ingram has been one of the best running backs in the NFL over the past few years, and has spent his entire career in the “Big Easy.” The 2009 Heisman trophy winner was drafted by the Saints in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, and has been a key staple of the franchise’s resurgence over the past few years.

I’m shocked that the Saints let him go and broke up the dynamic duo that Ingram formed with Alvin Kamara. This was a bad decision that could come back to haunt New Orleans next year.
But, how about the Ravens picking up two All-Pro players in one day?
Depending on the development of quarterback Lamar Jackson, the Ravens should definitely be looked at as Super Bowl contenders heading into the 2019 season.
