The Facts: Ingram is looking for a new team after the New Orleans Saints agreed to a deal with Latavius Murray. bAs of Monday, Ingram had at least five teams pursuing him — the Saints, Chicago Bears, Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions — but on Tuesday, the Ravens became the front-runner for his services, according to a league source.
Diehards Line:According to Times-Picayune staffer Josh Katzenstein, the Saints were offering about $4 million per year for Ingram, but with the Ravens already making an offer exceeding that, the Saints decided to instead sign Murray to a four-year deal with $14.4 million, according to a league source. That’s an average of $3.6 million per year for Murray and less than Ingram should receive wherever he lands. Ingram, 29, was a first-round pick by the Saints in 2011. He’ll leave New Orleans ranking second on the franchise rushing yardage list and first in rushing touchdowns.
