NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -The contract talks between the Saints and Mark Ingram could heat up next week. A league source tells FOX 8 sports that’s when both sides are scheduled to meet up.

Ingram acknowledged on the Rich Eisen show last week that contract talks have already begun about returning to the Saints. Those talks are in preliminary stages but next week both sides will meet and those talks could pick up.

Ingram, 29, also stated he wants to return to the Saints and believes he still has four more years left in the NFL. Ingram missed the first four games of the 2018 season on suspension but finished the year with 645 yards and six touchdowns. He’s currently second all-time in Saints history in rushing yards but needs just 90 yards to surpass Deuce McAllister’s record of 6,096 yards.
