Saints RB Ingram denies trade report

The SportsXchange

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram denied a New Orleans Times-Picayune report that he wants the team to trade him.

"No. Never came from me," Ingram told Thursday. "I don't know who that came from. But I love New Orleans. It's home to me. I love this organization, love my teammates, love my coaches. I'm happy here. And we're 3-0. So I'm excited about that."

Ingram said the report did not bother him.

"It doesn't matter to me," he said. "Everybody's entitled to their opinion. It doesn't bother me. I come out every day, work my butt off to be the best person I can be, the best player I can be for this team to help us go out there and have success. I do that every single day. And as long as my teammates, my coaches and everybody in this organization knows that, that's all that matters to me."

Saints coach Sean Payton said Sunday that the report was "completely false" and had "zero credibility."

Ingram, who was drafted No. 28 overall in 2011, has only 17 rushes for 31 yards this season. He is fourth on the Saints in rushing yards, behind Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles and undrafted free agent Khiry Robinson.
