Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Go watch some games from last year, I formed that opinion with my eyes but I seem to recall tons of pressure coming from the right tackle side of the line when it wasn't coming from up the middle...

Re: Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

I'm in the middle with the Ingram deal, so 4 mil sounds alright, especially when a older Gore got more-wow.
Ingram had his best year, and made the pro-bowl (by default). Hopefully his development we saw last year continues into this year and the love grows.

Re: Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

Strief's liability, which is a big one in our system, is when he gets out in space and has to be mobile (i.e. screens)...

But he's a big, long guy that can make pass rushers run a wider arc allowing Brees to move up into a pocket (when it's not uncomfortable for him to do so)...

That is why we spend the money on the interior linemen...

Strief isn't going to go high on draft boards, but he's very effective in how Payton cues his role up and masks his liabilities...

Only time I recall Strief struggling with a pass rusher in the last two years was against Seattle, who's real strength is its waves of pass rushers, and 49ers Ahmad Brooks, who's hit on Brees was like something out of a slo-mo slasher movie...

Ha. I'll take that as a "no"...

So much pressure, hard to keep up with where it was coming from the most.

Re: Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

Mark Ingram's four-year, $16 million deal contains $7.6 million guaranteed and a $3.6 million signing bonus.

The base salaries are $1 million (2015), $3 million (2016 and 2017), and $4 million (2018). His salaries in 2015 and 2016 are both fully guaranteed. As the salaries never become bloated, the contractual structure suggests the Saints intend for Ingram to play out the entire deal. With an increased commitment to the running game as 36-year-old Drew Brees shows signs of decline, Ingram will be a candidate for RB1 fantasy production for the foreseeable future.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Second, a hack? Um, okay.
Third, cheaper options? Ingram is only 25 and coming off a 964 yard season and is staying at $4 million, which barely puts him in the top 15

oh, and that's not what "jump the shark" means
Loomis went set the market before the market was set for a running back. He has never done that with contracts in the past. Sure its a better deal than Gore or McCoy but both those guys have earned their contracts with their new teams, Ingram has not.

Maybe I took the term a little out of context but to me it fits

Way to assume Wilson, man I wish I had a job where I could just throw stuff on a wall and see what sticks just for clicks. This guy covers Flacco, and he wants to say Brees is in decline. Flacco has never shown he's worth all that money the Ravens were dumb enough to give him.

Based on details gathered, Saints RB Mark Ingram's deal looks to include $7.6M in guarantees & a 2015 cap hit of just $2M.
