Ingram II joins the Ravens backfield that also includes Gus Edwards. The team also has Kenneth Dixon and De’Lance Turner as their backs presently.

He has worked in a tandem before. The past two seasons, he has shared carries with Alvin Kamara.

He saw that he would not return when the Saints announced their intentions on Tuesday to sign free agent back Latavius Murray to a four-year deal.

Ingram II was a first-round draft pick by the Saints in the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent the last eight-years with the Saints. 

This season, he served a four-game suspension. After returning, he appeared in 12 games, including six starts.

Ingram II had 138 carries for 645 yards and six touchdowns. He also had 21 receptions for 170 yards and a touchdown.

The 645 rushing yards were the fewest since the 2013 season when he had a career-low 386 yards.

In his career, he has made 106 appearances, including 64 starts. He has 1,321 carries for 6,007 yards and 50 touchdowns.

He also has 228 receptions for 1,598 yards and five touchdowns.
