The New Orleans Saints and Mark Ingram are headed for a reunion. The Saints and Texans have agreed to a trade that would bring Ingram back to the Superdome.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Ingram was drafted by the Saints in 2011, after their Super Bowl-winning campaign. In college at Alabama, he won a Heisman Trophy and a BCS Championship in the same year (2009). The Saints managed to take him with the 28th overall pick.
From 2011-2018, Ingram played with the Saints. He then signed a three-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, joining two other Heisman winners on the team (Lamar Jackson, Robert Griffin III). After being cut by the Ravens, he joined the down-trodden Texans for seven games before this trade back to the Saints was accomplished.
He will now be Alvin Kamara’s backup in New Orleans, in all likelyhood.
