News: Sean Payton referred to Ingram as "one of our starters" when answering a question about him on Monday, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Despite finishing 2013 on a strong note, the Saints declined to exercise Ingram's fifth-year option for 2015, which would have paid him about $5.2 million in 2015, in what has been described as purely a "financial decision." Impact: At this point, Payton's designation of Ingram is merely nominal, as his use of the plural form of "starters" is likely more telling. As Payton has done nearly every year of his tenure in New Orleans, it's expected that the Saints will once again deploy a committee or "hot hand" approach to the running game. Though Darren Sproles is gone, Ingram, who essentially enters a contract year without an extension in hand, joins a crowded backfield with Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson, and Travaris Cadet all expected to play a role.(RotoWire, )
