Saints decision on Mark Ingram based on money
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though the Saints declined the fifth-year option on running back Mark Ingram for the 2015 season, general manager Mickey Loomis still has high expectations for him this year, reports ESPN.

The decision not to pick up the option was purely based on money. It would have cost the Saints $5.2 million for the 2015 season, which is more than the going rate for running backs these days.

"That’s a financial decision: the amount of the tender versus what the market value for running backs has been," Loomis said. "I like Mark. I talked to Mark before we made that decision. I told him it wasn't reflective on what we thought about him. It was just a business decision, a financial decision. We have high expectations for him, and I hope he has a great year."

Mark Ingram wants to prove he's an every-down back
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Mark Ingram said he's shocked by the impending release of Darren Sproles and possible trade of Pierre Thomas, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram called the situation "a double-edged sword" because it appears he's headed for a bigger role.

"It's an exciting time in my career," Ingram told the paper. "I just want to take advantage of my situation and the opportunity that's presenting itself. Just want to prove to the organization that I can be the back they wanted, an every-down back, type of playmaker that they need.

"I'm excited about my situation. It's unfortunate to see a lot of guys go, but I'm excited about my opportunity that I have coming up."

Ingram averaged a career-high 4.9 yards per carry last season.

Mark Ingram goes 'one and out' against Seahawks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Mark Ingram appeared destined for a big game Saturday against Seattle. Then came the last three quarters.

Ingram rushed for 30 yards on his first three attempts and finished the first quarter with 34 yards on four carries. But he was stymied thereafter and finished with just 49 yards on 10 tries. He also had the lone turnover of the game, a second-quarter fumble that killed a New Orleans drive.
