Should the New Orleans Saints Shop Mark Ingram on the Trade Market?

When the New Orleans Saints’ backfield had Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram together last season, they looked unstoppable. Both backs surpassed the 1,000-yard threshold and received Pro Bowl honors.

However, Ingram missed the first month of the 2018 campaign thanks to a positive PED test.

In his stead, Alvin Kamara produced 611 scrimmage yards through just four games. He proved more than capable of shouldering the load without Ingram, showing the same explosiveness that thrust him into the starting role last year.

In Week 5, Ingram received 16 carries and recorded two receptions in his season debut. Kamara was phased out of the game plan early, thanks to the game script (up 40-13 at the end of the third quarter), as well as Sean Payton’s desire to let Ingram shake off some rust.

Kamara will undoubtedly return to the game plan in more massive doses in the coming weeks when the games are more closely contested.

With Ingram around, however, Kamara will get fewer snaps even though he proved more than capable of performing as a workhorse.

It begs the following question: should New Orleans explore the trade market for Mark Ingram?
