Bye Bye Reggie? Saints Draft Running Back Ingram
As Acadiana’s New Orleans Saints Station we sure were watching last night’s draft to see what our beloved team would do. And as the Saints are known to do, a curve ball was thrown. After selecting Defensive End Cameron Jordan (California) with the 24th pick, New Orleans traded back into the first round and scooped up Alabama Running Back Mark Ingram. Ingram was the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner and was on the National Championship Crimson Tide team that season.
So this leaves a lot of folks speculating on the future of Reggie Bush. The 2006 first round pick tweeted last night “It’s been fun New Orleans”. Bush is due to make $11.8 million this upcoming season. That ain’t gonna happen. We shall see.
Whatever happens, we wish Reggie the best luck. He’s been a first-class act and even though he hasn’t quite lived up to the hype, he did help bring us a championship. Who Dat!
