The New Orleans Saints will re-sign running back Mark Ingram to a 4-year contract worth $16 million. ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to break the news.

Not surprising considering the news earlier this week that the team would be parting way with Pierre Thomas. The Saints were going to have to do something to guarantee the future of the running back position. As it stands now, Ingram is pretty much he main man in the back field.

Ingram proved last season that he can be a valuable asset for the offense when healthy and used properly, after New Orleans failed to exercise the fifth-year clause on his rookie contract.

The entire deal is worth $16 million, according to Pro Football Talk.
