Summary

Ingram's fifth year option was not picked up prior to the 2014 season. Most expected that to signal that his fourth year with the team would be his last. However, he set career highs in carries (226), rushing yards (964) and touchdowns (9). Even considering that success, the consensus remained that he would sign elsewhere for the 2015 season. However, he returned to the Saints signing a four-year $16 Million deal. His role in the running game last year actually decreased as he had only two games with over 20 carries and only topped 100 yards in one game, against the Colts (25th in the league against the rush). On a positive note, he was considerably more active in the passing game, almost doubling his previous career high to catch 50 passes. He missed the final four games of the season and had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on his left shoulder in December. Ingram should remain the Saints' starting running back, but will again face competition for carries from C. J. Spiller, Tim Hightower and rookie Daniel Lasco. The Saints have used a running back by committee frequently under Coach Payton and will likely continue that approach this year. Ingram will be their go to power back. He has consistently been a tough runner throughout his career, but is somewhat prone to injury. He has missed 18 games in his five seasons. Ingram did restructure his contract this March to potentially help them team's cap situation. The revised contract did not include either additional money or a pay cut. (May 21)
