Ingram will be suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the league performance-enhancing drug policy

Summary

Mark Ingram has played seven seasons in the NFL, all with the Saints. Even though his skill set seems fitted for a heavy work load, it has not yet happened. Ingram set a career high in carries with 230 in 2017, despite sometimes playing a secondary role to Alvin Kamara. Ingram also played all 16 games for the second year in a row, and the third time in his career. With his impending suspension, he will not play 16 games in 2018. Perhaps the most surprising Ingram statistic from last year was that he also set a career high in receptions with 58. The same player that caught only 24 passes during his first three seasons with New Orleans tied for the 8th most receptions by a running back last year. Ingram who had not rushed for 1,000 yards in any of his first five seasons has now topped that mark two years in a row, while averaging 5.0 ypc. Ingram's suspension also hurts his future earning potential as he is playing in the final year of the four-year $16 Million he signed in March 2015. Ingram should remain a part of the successful tandem from last season, but how the Saints operated during his absence could signal changes before his contract runs out. (June 5)

Saints | Mark Ingram explains absence (Wed Jun 13, 08:52 AM) - New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram explained Tuesday, June 12, his absence from voluntary minicamp by stating he was in South Florida working with a personal trainer to improve speed and route running. 'I'm not angry with my contract,' he added. 'I wasn't holding out. I'm in the last year of my deal; of course I'd like an extension, but that's not the reason I wasn't here.'

Our View: There was a ton of speculation that Ingram wanted a new deal...which seems ludicrous given the fact that he's suspended for the first four games of 2018 and Alvin Kamara has emerged as a top weapon for the Saints. Ingram will miss the first month of the season, then he should resume work as the team's no.2 RB behind Kamara.

Saints | Mark Ingram shows up for minicamp (Tue Jun 12, 12:39 PM) - New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is taking part in mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 12, after skipping the team's voluntary workouts earlier this spring.

Our View: Set to be a free agent in 2019, Ingram is reportedly unhappy with his current contract. It doesn't help his case that he's been suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season, and having Alvin Kamara emerge with star production doesn't help either. Ingram, even though suspended to start the regular season, can still practice with the team and even play in the preseason.
