PLAYERS: Mark Ingram
TEAMS: New Orleans Saints
Mark Ingram has sushi named after him at a Birmingham sushi bar. Mark Ingram is a former Heisman trophy winner of the Alabama Crimson Tide and now of the New Orleans Saints. He is probably best known for his performance in the 2009 BCS National Championship game where he put his two Nike Pro-Combat gloves together to form the “Alabama Crimson Al” right towards the camera. Pretty cool of this sushi place to name a roll after a former player. I wish more places would follow suit. HT @bamasgot14

Saints Nation: With Romeus Out, Martez Wilson Will Get Every Shot to Showcase his Stuff

What they might be thinking: NFC South

Ruling Could Affect All Franchised Players

Drew Brees has been designated as a "Franchise" player again, but this time it's his third such designation. If that's the case, Brees could stand to reap millions more in his next deal -- a deal that wil affect other Franchised players. Perhaps the Saints should have acted sooner.
