Mark Ingram

Alvin Kamara is the future in New Orleans so I am not sure it makes much sense for the Saints to bring Mark Ingram back since I’m sure he be looking for a nice contract. The Raiders are in need of a running back, and the draft does not look promising at the moment.

They already have Jalen Richard to take care of the 3rd down responsibilities, but Ingram could give them a viable option between the tackles. On Sunday, Richard showed he has the talent to make people miss, but struggled with ball control, as his fumbles cost the Raiders late.

Despite being 28 years old, Ingram’s most carries in a season are 230, and he has never gone over 300 total touches. So he has plenty of football left and can give the Raiders good stability at the position for a few years.
