Latavius Murray thanks Vikings in Instagram post

The former Saints starter and Heisman Trophy victor, who can not officially sign until 4 p.m. Wednesday, spent his first eight seasons in New Orleans.

Tuesday, the New Orleans Saints agreed to a contract with Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray.

Ingram, also 29, is a two-time All-Pro who put together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in New Orleans in 2016 and 2017.

Per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Saints attempted to negotiate a deal, but the sides could not come to an agreement.

Ingram is joining the most run-heavy team in the NFL.

Ingram's contract with the Ravens will be a three-year deal for $15 million, according to a variety of media reports. The 29-year-old has missed 25 games over the last three seasons, due in large part to breaking his leg twice.

Murray joins after spending each of the past two seasons with the Vikings. More importantly, Murray is an accomplished receiving threat - he has a career catch rate of 79-percent on 162 targets, racking up 883 yards but curiously never catching a touchdown pass.

Ingram, 29, has spent his entire career in New Orleans after being him with the 28th pick of the 2011 National Football League draft. Ingram, meanwhile, had 138 attempts for 645 yards (4.7 per carry) - his lowest yardage total since 2013 - and six touchdowns in 12 games (six starts).

Ingram became the first Alabama player to win the Heisman Trophy in 2009, when he helped the Crimson Tide win the BCS national championship.
