Indications had been that Ingram was going to be cut loose this offseason after his role was reduced as the season went on. Ingram was a healthy scratch this past weekend with reports saying that he was held out for financial reasons.
Ingram, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract before returning to the Saints on a four-year, $16 million contract that included $7.6 million guaranteed a few years ago.
Ingram is in the second year of his three-year, $15 million deal and set to earn a base salary of $5 million in 2021.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Ingram will free up $5 million of available cap space while creating $1,333,334 in dead money.
In 2020, Ingram appeared in 11 games for the Ravens and rushed for 299 yards on 72 carries (4.2 YPC) and two touchdowns to go along with six receptions for 50 yards receiving.
