  Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Saints do not intend to pick up RB Mark Ingram‘s fifth-year option. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that Ingram hasn’t come close to living up to his draft status. If they Saints had plans to pick up his option, they most likely would have done so around the time they elected to pick up Cameron Jordan‘s fifth-year option. New Orleans sent the Patriots a 2011 second-round pick and their 2012 first-round selection for the No. 28 overall pick and the right to draft Ingram. Ingram, 24, is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is set to make $1,386,375 for the 2014 season. His option would cost the Saints $5.211 million, but that figure is only guaranteed for injury. Last year, Ingram should at some some signs of progress. He ram for 386 yards on 78 carries (4.9 YPC) and a touchdown.
