ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter is Tweeting that the Saints intend to sign former Vikings RB Latavius Murray to a four-year, $14.4 million deal.
The deal, if true could mean that RB Mark Ingram's time with the Saints could be coming to an end. Ingram is a free agent and could command a fairly high-dollar payment.
Murray carried the ball 140 times for 578 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2018 with the Vikings.
Ingram, who will turn 30 next season, has teamed with Alvin Kamara to give the Saints a dynamic one-two punch the past few seasons.
He played a little less in 2018 after sitting out the first four games due to a suspension. He had 138 rushes for 645 yards and six touchdowns last season.
Ingram had a banner year in 2017, carrying the ball for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was in the Pro Bowl that year.
