According to Aaron Wilson of Ravens Insider Mark Ingram four year deal is worth $16 million. That we pretty much already knew. $7.6 million is the reported guaranteed money, $3.6 million signing bonus, 2015 salary of $1 million, 2016 at $3 million, 2017 at $3 million and the final year in 2018 at $4 million. We all know how those final years of a contract usually plays out. Based on these numbers, Mark's cap hit for 2015 would be $2 million. $900k prorated signing bonus, plus $1 million 2015 salary, and $100K workout bonus.

While the release of Pierre Thomas helps pay for most of this $2,000,000 2015 cap hit, the Saints have much more work to get done to comply with the salary cap. Stay tuned folks, more cuts and restructures are surely coming.

And much like Deuce's contract in the past, there are some salary escalators built in.
