  • Saints RB Mark Ingram said his absence from OTAs was not related to him being upset with his contract. Ingram did, however, admit that he would like a new deal because he’s going into last year of his contract, but he said his absence was about a new training regimen. (Josh Katzenstein)
  • As for his four-game suspension, Ingram said he fought it hard and while he doesn’t agree with the ruling, he’ll serve the ban. (Sean Fazende)
