- 2009 Heisman Trophy winner
- Ravens tenure: 2019-2020
Raise your hand if you hear Chris Berman in your head right now.
The Ravens scooped up the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner in free agency after the 2018 season. Mark Ingram spent the first eight seasons of his career with the New Orleans Saints, where he racked up 6,007 total rushing yards and 50 touchdowns, including two 1,000-yard seasons and two trips to the Pro Bowl.
Ingram’s first season in Baltimore was one of the finest of his career, as he served as the lead running back in the most productive rushing offense in NFL history.
Of the 3,296 total rushing yards the Ravens picked up in 2019, Ingram contributed 1,018, along with 10 touchdowns.
In 2020, the 31-year-old Ingram saw his role in the Ravens offense drastically reduced, as more playing time went to fellow running backs, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards.
It didn’t help matters that Ingram, like much of the Ravens’ roster, spent time on the COVID-19 list. His rushing yard total dropped all the way to 299 with only two touchdowns, a steep drop from the year before.
He played no part in either of Baltimore’s playoff games in January.
As with Robert Griffin III, the Ravens waived Ingram shortly after the season. Shortly thereafter, he signed with the Houston Texans.
Still, it was fun while it lasted.
