Mark Ingram heading for Baltimore Ravens in National Football League free agency

Despite the Murray signing, the Vikings also drafted running back Dalvin Cook that same year and the rookie ended up winning the starting job out of training camp.

Bridgewater, a backup last season to Drew Brees, came to the Saints last August in a trade that gave the New York Jets a third-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Ingram deal is three years worth $15 million. Or Baltimore could ask Kenneth Dixon to take on more of that responsibility.

During his two years with Minnesota, Murray played in all 32 regular season games where he gained 1,420 yards on the ground and ran for 14 touchdowns while adding 244 yards through the air. That shakes to about $3.6 million per year, less than the $4 million per year Mark Ingram received in his last contract extension with the Saints.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirms that the Bucs are shopping Jackson and a return to Philly is not out of the question. He even posted a farewell to the Bucs on Instagram and Twitter despite not being traded or released by the team yet.

He was only with the Vikings for two seasons, but running back Latavius Murray quickly became a fan favorite. He made the Pro Bowl in both 2017 and 2014.

In eight National Football League seasons, Ingram has run for 6,007 yards and 50 touchdowns on 1,321 carries and caught 228 passes for 1,598 yards and five touchdowns. According to ESPN.com, the Saints spent the past few days trying to hammer out a deal with Ingram to keep him in New Orleans, but the two sides couldn't agree on a number.

Ingram rushed for 645 yards and six touchdowns on 138 carries and caught 21 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown for the Saints in 2018.
