GM Mickey Loomis confirmed that the Saints' decision to not exercise Ingram's fifth-year option was purely a financial call, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. "That's a financial decision. The amount of the tender vs. what the market for running backs has been," Loomis said Wednesday. "We like Mark, we told Mark before we made that decision that it wasn't reflective of what we thought about him, it was just a business decision."

Mark Ingram: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

As expected, the Saints did not exercise the fifth-year option on Ingram's contract, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports.

The Saints do not plan to exercise their 2015 team option on Ingram's contract, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report points out that picking up his 2015 option would have involved a $5.2 million hit, so the team will let Ingram play out his rookie contract. Though Ingram's overall 2013 stats (78 carries for 386 yards and a TD in 11 games) weren't eye-popping, he did finish the campaign on a strong note and heads into the 2014 season in the mix for carries in the New Orleans backfield along with Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson and perhaps Travaris Cadet, now that Darren Sproles is no longer with the team.
Ingram will likely see an increased role in 2014 following the likely departure of Darren Sproles. Ingram was limited to only 11 games in 2013 due a nagging toe injury, finishing the year with 386 yards on 78 carries (4.9 YPC) and one touchdown.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Ingram got off to a slow start in his second season, perhaps the result of an arthroscopic knee procedure he had in May, 2012, but the physical, 5-9, 215-pound back regained the lead role late in the year and closed with 4.2 YPC and four touchdowns over his final seven games. Moreover, after missing six games as a rookie, the former Heisman trophy winner played a full 16-game slate last season. Only 23, Ingram could still emerge as a workhorse should the Saints ever move away from a committee backfield. Oddly, for the second year in a row, Ingram saw far fewer snaps than Darren Sproles or Pierre Thomas, yet received more carries than either and led the team in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. In addition to sharing touches, Ingram's other problem is the Saints' penchant for passing in the red zone. They ranked ninth with 142 red-zone plays, but 27th with just 44 red-zone rushes. Until his committee situation in a pass-first offense changes, Ingram's ceiling will be modest.

2012

Ingram had a disappointing rookie campaign, totaling just 520 yards while missing six games due to injuries. Curiously, he received the same amount of goal-line carries (three) as Darren Sproles. Despite seeing 181 fewer snaps than Pierre Thomas and 282 fewer than Sproles, Ingram was given more rushing attempts than both, so he was utilized heavily when on the field. Ingram’s year ended prematurely when he had surgery to repair a turf toe injury, and discouragingly, he also underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in May, the second time in three years his left knee has been repaired. It wasn’t major surgery and is expected to keep him out only six weeks, but Ingram might not be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp. Another variable is how New Orleans doles out carries with Sean Payton suspended for 2012. If the team ditches its past committee approach, and Ingram emerges as the lead back in such a potent offense, big production could follow.

2011

The Saints traded up to draft Ingram with the No. 28 pick, and as a result, he looks like the favorite to lead the team in carries in 2011. After winning the Heisman trophy in 2009, Ingram battled injuries during his junior season last year, though he still managed to total 14 touchdowns on limited carries in 10 games. Not overly fast or super athletic, Ingram is a hard runner often compared to Emmitt Smith. Of course, expecting similar production would be foolish, even in the league’s No. 1 offense for two of the last three years. While the Saints should provide plenty of scoring opportunities, trusting coach Sean Payton is another thing, as he’s unpredictable when it comes to distributing carries. Pierre Thomas seemingly can’t stay healthy, but he’s a more than capable back when on the field, and last year’s team rushing leader Chris Ivory will also be in the mix. Another committee could easily emerge, but if Ingram somehow becomes a feature back in this offense (he only averaged 15.9 carries per game in college), there’s a lot of upside. There’s some concern about the degenerative arthritis in Ingram’s knee, but Dr. James Andrews recently gave him a full clean bill of health.
