Mark Ingram’s love of the beautiful game runs deep

Mark Ingram’s love of the beautiful game runs deep

Mark Ingram is quick to check you with the mere mention of how the average NFL running back’s career lasts about 2.5 years. Ingram, a three-time Pro Bowler, will enter his 11th season this fall, but the near end of his playing days is the furthest thing from his mind.

 

“I’m still playing at a high level and I plan to play at a high level for many years to come,” said Ingram, 31, who signed with the Houston Texans this past offseason, his third team since being drafted by New Orleans in the first round in 2011. “I still have a lot to accomplish in this league, but I’m blessed that I’m able to prepare for the future with this deal.”
