According to Adam Schefter, the Eagles-Saints Mark Ingram trade rumors were completely false.

On Wednesday morning, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter joined Anthony Gargano on 97.5 FM The Fanatic, a commercial station that covers Philadelphia sports. What was said in regards to the wildfire that was Mark Ingram trade rumors between the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles was quickly put out.

Schefter said this in regards to the speculation that started with a simple suggestion that escalated into a supposed real conversation according to Kyle Scott at Crossing Broad:

Let me tell you. Allow me to refute that right now and say that there is absolutely nothing to that. There was absolutely nothing ever to that. I spoke to people in both organizations and both had the same reaction: “We have never spoken.” So I don’t know where that started, and maybe that would start things up now? I don’t think so, based on the reaction that I got from both organizations, but that was never in the works.

Again, I don’t want to say it’ll never happen, because who knows. Strange things happen. But I’m just telling you there was absolutely nothing to that as of right now. I don’t expect there to be anything to come of that. So that’s where we’re at at that. Is that definitive enough?

Ingram looks to be a key part of the 2017 Saints offense, much like he’s been in the past. For whatever reason, silliness continues to follow Ingram.
