Running back Mark Ingram lands with the New Orleans Saints

The former Houston Texans player is a great addition to the Saints’ offense

It appears that the New Orleans Saints’ dynamic running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram have been reunited again. The team was able to acquire Ingram in a trade with the Houston Texans. It has certainly been one of the most positive moves for the team in recent weeks, especially as major challenges loom in the coming days.

According to sources, who told ESPN about the transaction, the deal includes a trade of late-round picks. This trade marks the second in two months between the Saints and Texans after New Orleans acquired veteran corner Bradley Roby earlier this offseason. Ingram’s arrival comes as the Saints desperately need more depth in the department after releasing veteran Latavius Murray in September and losing reserve Tony Jones to a serious injury. Because of these circumstances, the Saints turned to one of the most famous and productive backups in franchise history and expect the results to be the usual, if not better.

After being drafted in the first round a decade ago, Ingram, 31, spent his first eight seasons in New Orleans. He had totaled 6,007 yards on the ground, 1,598 yards receiving and 55 touchdowns before the Saints let him leave as a free agent two years ago. During their younger years, Ingram and Kamara were one of the best running back duos in NFL history. The duo, nicknamed “Boom and Zoom,” was simply unstoppable and became the first pair of running backs to surpass 1,500 yards rushing in the same season in 2017 and the first in over 40 years to make the Pro Bowl starting roster.

Kamara showed the joy of having his teammate back via Twitter, writing, “Aye @markingramII ….. we back.” The team hopes to see the coming together of these two great players reflect positive results in the upcoming important games they have on the schedule.
