New Orleans Saints: Mark Ingram Wants to be the Best RB Ever
- Updated: August 2, 2014
Mark Ingram was the first player in Alabama history to ever win the Heisman Trophy, but his NFL career with the New Orleans Saints hasn’t been nearly as successful.
Ingram has fought for carries in the three years he’s been in the NFL, but he sits atop the Saints depth chart after a week of camp. Despite his lack of success, Ingram is still extremely confident, saying he wants to be the best back to ever play the game, according to ESPN.
“The sky’s the limit, man. I want to be the best back to ever play the freakin’ game of football,” Ingram said, via ESPN.
For his career, Ingram has 356 carries for 1,462 yards and 11 touchdowns, a far cry from being the greatest back ever. The Saints are poised for a big 2014 season, and Ingram appears to be a major part of their offensive scheme. If he can live up to his own expectations, it’ll be nearly impossible to keep New Orleans out of the end zone.
