We will see how it plays out when big numbers with $ in front of them come out!

"I'd love to be a Saint," Ingram said. "But it's a business. So we'll see what happens, see what they're talking about in the front office and just go from there."

The market value of NFL running backs has fallen in recent years, but Ingram is only 25 and presumably has plenty of mileage left on his legs. The Saints aren't known for spending big money on backs, and they've developed inexpensive options like undrafted free agent Khiry Robinson.

"But it's a business" is always code for I'm taking the contract with the most guaranteed money. And the NFL is a sport where players' careers end suddenly, so I cannot fault him for that.

He's been unhappy in a time share, he's been labeled a bust for the draft pick investment, and he's had his flareups with Coach Payton...

Don't see him returning if all things are equal with other suitors...

Too easy to find undrafted RB's... Best of luck Mark, but we have other more pressing needs to spend money on.

Yeah I don't see him back either and frankly that doesn't bother me. I don't think he brings anything we can't find cheaper. We are not a one back team, we are not a run first team. We will always be a running back by committee group. I am sure that if Robinson or Pierre Thomas got the carries Ingram received the results would have been very similar.

We always find RB's who can be part of that committee like Robinson and Thomas. We had guys like Chris Ivory and Joquie Bell and let them walk because we were RB heavy. Almost every team in the league was into their 3-4 RB's throughout the year. Draft another with a mid round pick, bring in a veteran FA and prospect a couple undrafted FA's and we are no worse for wear. Sorry Mark but you can find your money from someone else.

He was finally healthy, and had a great year. Bring him back.

He was "supposedly" seen yelling on the sideline when SP didn't put him in for a while and then dodged a high five from SP after scoring a TD in week one

All speculation

Ingram would benefit from a better O Line just as much as Brees would.
