New Orleans Saints to Ink RB Latavius Murray to a Four-Year Deal

The Saints will have a shakeup at the running back spot for 2019, as the team is signing former Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray to a four-year deal worth $14.4 million.

The move means that Mark Ingram, who was part of the teams’ 1-2 punch at running back with Alvin Kamara, is likely not coming back to New Orleans.

While Murray is not the pass catcher that Ingram is, the 29-year-old can still be a big asset in the run game for the Saints, as last year he rushed for 578 yards and averaged 4.1 yards per carry for the Vikings.

Ingram over his eight seasons with the Saints was a productive runner, going for 6,007 rushing yards and 50 rushing scores.
