The Baltimore Ravens have decided to part ways with running back Mark Ingram. He was a healthy inactive scratch for the AFC Divisional Playoff Game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday.
Ingram, 31, had his playing time reduced and was eventually phased out of the running back rotation with the emergence of JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards being the focal point of the Ravens rushing attack that averaged 5.53 yards per rush.
Dobbins finished the year with 805 yards rushing and nine touchdowns, while Edwards rushed for 723 yards and six scores. Ingram was the fourth-leading rusher on the team with 299 yards on 72 carries.
The 2009 Heisman Trophy winner had one year left on the three-year $15 million contract that started back in 2019, but the Ravens went with the money saving route and released him to get $5 million back towards the salary cap.
Ingram took to social media to thank all of the Ravens fans that have supported him during his time with the team.
"I love all the real ones in flock nation that supported me unconditionally and showed love to the boy these last 2 years," said the three-time Pro Bowler.
Ingram played his first eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints after being drafted with the 28th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
