Source: Saints don't exercise Ingram option
ESPN 237+ SHARES
As expected, the New Orleans Saints did not exercise their fifth-year option on running back Mark Ingram, a league source confirmed.
That means Ingram will be a free agent following this season.
It doesn't, however, mean that the Saints are down on Ingram.
And Ingram is a part-time back who is expected to share the load with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson this season.
New Orleans did exercise its fifth-year option on Jordan last month, which came at a price tag of $6.969 million for the 2015 season.
