Mark Ingram pleased he showed he can handle big workload this season

Ingram only needs 93 yards to reach 1,000 for the season.

Drew Brees remains confident in the direction that the Saints are taking as a franchise despite a disappointing 2014 season and he’s not the only member of the team looking ahead to better days.

Running back Mark Ingram is wrapping up the final year of his contract with the team and preparing to head into free agency after his best NFL season. Ingram missed three games early in the season, but has since held up well under a heavy workload caused by injuries other backs. Ingram has set career highs in attempts, yards, receptions and touchdowns and thinks he’s sold himself well in the process.

“Yeah, I think that’s a good thing, seeing that I could carry the ball and be out there doing whatever they ask me to do for a stretch of time and be healthy,” Ingram said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Running backs have not found a friendly market in free agency in recent years, so Ingram will have to buck that trend to land a big contract. That will be tough in a year when DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, C.J. Spiller and Frank Gore are also set to make up a crowded free agent market at the position, but coming off his best pro season shouldn’t hurt when it comes time for Ingram to talk contract.

Ingram is going to get a contract in the 4/23 range with about 11 million in guarantees. I'm not sure the Saints can devote that much in cap space to keep him.

Good question. I think the Saints will offer him a fair deal however we are in no financial position to back up the Wells Fargo truck for one player with the other holes we have on both sides of the field.

Re: Mark Ingram pleased he showed he can handle big workload this season

I would like Ingram to get this "milestone" of 100 yards *
I would like Ingram to stay as a Saint.

My belief is that Ingram may have to rely on breaking one to get there because there are others who after personal targets and, for sure, one of those will take high priority in attempting to get 2 of those records.

*Ultimately the number 1000 being 10 x 10 x 10 is what it is because us humans operate on a number system of 10. Ingram would have reached this milestone of "1000" if we had a number system of 8 or 9. hahahhahahahahahahaa!
