Mark Ingram to Sign Three-Year, $15 Million Deal With Ravens

Thomas' average salary of $14.33 million through the first three years of the deal is second only to Washington's Landon Collins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

In all likelihood, that will end Mark Ingram's tenure in New Orleans after eight seasons.

This could work to benefit both the Saints and the 26-year-old Bridgewater, as there's no telling how much longer the 40-year-old Brees will continue to play.

- Former Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray intends to sign a four-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting. Even if Ingram's camp knew that amount would be too pricy for most teams, you can surmise it felt a team could at least move close enough to that figure. The addition of Ingram gives Baltimore another running back option to help out quarterback Lamar Jackson. He also had 34 receptions for 214 yards and a touchdown.

The Ravens' leading rusher in 2018 was Gus Edwards, who ran for 718 yards and two touchdowns on 137 carries as an undrafted rookie.

Thomas has recorded 664 combined tackles, 68 passes defensed, 28 interceptions, two touchdowns, and 10 forced fumbles through his nine National Football League seasons. But those reports were quashed early Wednesday morning and news then broke of his signing with the Ravens. He returned before regular season started and posted three interceptions in the first four games before suffering a season-ending broken leg. Last season, he caught 22 passes for 141 yards.
