Vikings losing Latavius Murray, Tay Train expected to sign with Saints

The Ravens agreed to a deal with former Saints running back Mark Ingram according to Dianna Russini and Adam Schefter of ESPN

The Baltimore Ravens are thought to be the favorite to land the former first-round drafted running back from Alabama.

Ingram's former team, the New Orleans Saints, signed former Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray. He ranks second in franchise history in rushing yardage and first in rushing touchdowns. Just a day after it became apparent he wouldn't be returning to the New Orleans Saints, the veteran rusher is being courted by the Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions, and Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

The 29-year-old is expected to give the Ravens backfield a more well-rounded threat. 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.

As a rookie running threat, Edwards surpassed Ingram's ground production on almost equal carries. Thomas, a six-time Pro Bowler, was in a contract dispute with Seattle last offseason and broke his leg in the fourth game of the season, giving the Seahawks sideline the middle finger as he was carted off. When healthy, though, he's one of the best safeties in football. "You've gotta love a 240-pound guy that brings it every single snap". "We've got a good squad".

With Murray's arrival in New Orleans, Ingram is on the lookout for pastures new and early reports suggest he has been in talks with Baltimore Ravens who are also in the hunt for Bell.

The Packers and Lions could both use a runner of Ingram's caliber and experience, too.
