Mark Valentino Ingram II (born December 21, 1989) is an American football running back for the Houston Texans of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Alabama, and was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, playing with them for eight seasons before a two-year stint with the Baltimore Ravens.

During his sophomore college season in 2009, Ingram won the first Heisman Trophy ever awarded to an Alabama Crimson Tide player,[2] set the Crimson Tide's single-season rushing record with 1,658 yards,[3] was recognized as a unanimous All-American,[4] and helped lead the Tide to an undefeated 14–0 season and the 2010 BCS National Championship.[5] Since entering the NFL in 2011, Ingram has earned three Pro Bowl selections (2014, 2017 and 2019). In 2018, he received a four-game suspension after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs.

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints selected Ingram in the first round with the 28th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft—the same pick number the Giants used to draft his father, Mark Ingram Sr., twenty-four years earlier, at the same age.[65][66] Ingram was the first running back drafted in 2011; since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, this was the latest pick used for the first running back chosen in an NFL draft.[67] The Saints acquired the pick from the New England Patriots, trading their second-round selection (#56 overall) and their first-round selection in 2012 to do so.[66] As Alabama head coach Nick Saban is part of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's coaching tree, the Patriots were widely assumed to be interested in drafting Ingram themselves.[68] On July 28, 2011, Ingram decided on the number #28 in honor of his and his father's draft pick number.[69] The next day Ingram agreed with the Saints on a four-year contract, with three years guaranteed and a fifth year option. The contract was worth $7.41 million, with a $3.89 million signing bonus.[69][70]
