NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Coming in at number nine is the first running back on the countdown, Mark Ingram.
Ingram picked the perfect time to have a career year. His 964 yards, nine touchdowns and first Pro Bowl appearance earned him a new four year, 16-million dollar contract in the offseason.
It's safe to say Ingram's emergence was one of the best things to come out of an otherwise disappointing 2014 season. Above all else, Ingram finally established his identity as a volume carry back.
However his new money means new opportunities and new expectations within the saints offense. Ingram will be counted on to both stay healthy and match his production in 2015.
