Saints News, 3/30/16: Saints Rework Mark Ingram Contract

New, comments

The Saints have restructured RB Mark Ingram's contract, bringing them up to $3.6 million in cap space. The restructure comes just one year after Ingram signed an extension with the Saints, and one day after it was announced that Fairley's 1 year deal was a 3 year shell deal.
