Packers still in the mix for RB Mark Ingram

With Baltimore seeing several of their defensive starters from last season leave in free agency, it became even more important to bolster their offense. Reports indicated New Orleans turned to Murray to fill Ingram's spot when the Saints and Ingram couldn't reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Stating he was looking for a starting job somewhere in the National Football League, it is a bit surprising to see Murray go to the Saints where he will be in what should be a lopsided timeshare with Alvin Kamara instead of pushing for a featured gig.

During his two years with Minnesota, Murray played in all 32 regular season games where he gained 1,420 yards on the ground and ran for 14 touchdowns while adding 244 yards through the air. Or Baltimore could ask Kenneth Dixon to take on more of that responsibility. Murray averaged 3.9 yards per carry while totaling 1,488 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Bohemian Rhapsody ended with this statement: " Freddie Mercury died of AIDS-related pneumonia on the 24th November 1991". Dolezal cites Queen manager Jim Beach's intentions to pick up the story post-Live Aid performance.

Although Murray went into the 2017 season as the Vikings' backup running back, he ended up starting 11 games after Cook went down with an ACL injury in Week 5. According to ESPN.com, the Saints spent the past few days trying to hammer out a deal with Ingram to keep him in New Orleans, but the two sides couldn't agree on a number.

This likely shut the door on a potential re-signing with Ingram, who finished the 2018 season trailing the great Deuce McAllister for the Saints' all-time rushing yards mark by 89 yards.
