Jason La Canfora reports that Ingram’s one-year contract is worth $4 million. 

Ingram had been visiting Pittsburgh today. The Steelers were in big need of additional pass-rushing depth so a deal makes a lot of sense. 

Ingram also visited with the Dolphins in May and met with the Chiefs this past March. 

Ingram, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $8.39 million rookie contract that included 7.61 million guaranteed before the Chargers picked up his fifth-year option that paid him $7,751,000 for the 2017 season.

The Chargers placed the franchise tag on Ingram in 2017 before later signing him to a four-year, $66 million contract with $42 million guaranteed. He’s currently testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent. 

In 2020, Ingram appeared in seven games and recorded 10 total tackles, five tackles for loss, no sacks, and one interception.
