Approaching a crossroads eight seasons into his NFL career, running back Mark Ingram has things he still wants to accomplish in football.

的知 going into my ninth year, I feel like I知 better than ever, Ingram said during an appearance on 典he Rich Eisen Show last week. 的 feel like my career痴 still going up. I want to rush for 10,000 yards. Clearly, I want to win the Super Bowl. I just want to keep pressing forward, keep doing the best I can do and just control what I can control.

But will Ingram be striving for those milestones with the New Orleans Saints, the team that brought him into the NFL from Alabama as the 28th selection in the 2011 draft?



Ingram has played out a four-year, $16 million contract signed in 2015. If the Saints don't re-sign him before the NFL's 2019 business year starts on March 13, Ingram will become a free agent. He was headed toward free agency in 2015, but he re-signed with the Saints a few days before reaching that point.

的致e been talking to the Saints, Ingram said. "It痴 kind of like a thing where they say they want me back, I say, 選 want to be back, it痴 just can we compromise on the value? Like I said, I致e been there my entire career. It痴 very rare that someone gets to spend their career in one place, and that would be something that would be significant. But at the same time, I知 not afraid to bet on myself. I believe in my opportunity.

"Of course, I'd love to be in New Orleans for my career, my teammates, my family. I met my wife, my children there. Like I said, I love the organization, and I hope it all gets worked out. But at the same time, I have all confidence in my abilities and all confidence in what I can do given the opportunity to be a feature guy. So I'm not scared to bet on myself. At the same time, I'd love to be in New Orleans."

Saints: Running back Mark Ingram is heading to the open market. Regardless of whether the Saints hope to keep him for a ninth season, it won’t happen via the franchise tag.

I'm afraid this past year was the best chance he would've had at a ring. We are going to have a tough time paying everyone in the near future.

It was probably our best chance....but not our only chance. We need to be aggressive for two or three impact players at TE, O-line and DT. Just don't jeopardize keeping our young impact players that we drafted and who are in the process of earning a fat contract.

Our window is open for a couple of more years with our good O-line, rushing attack and a young aggressive defense that can score points and get turn overs too!

Edit: Don't forget Drew is still breaking a lot of records.
