Per Adam Schefter, the Ravens are set to release RB Mark Ingram today.

RSR staff react to the move here.

Tony Lombardi

I remember Eric DeCosta sharing with me that when they vetted Mark Ingram before signing him, they reached out to former Raven Ben Watson who was a teammate of Mark’s in New Orleans. Watson, quite the high character guy himself, fully endorsed the signing. And from the first day he walked through the threshold at The Castle, Mark has been the consummate leader, an outstanding player and a selfless teammate who always put the team ahead of himself.

Nothing but class, Big Truss! Wishing him life’s best as his journey continues. And maybe with a little luck, one of the four remaining teams will pick him up, perhaps one in need of a RB (wink, wink Buffalo), and sign him to their practice squad where he might bring a pair of fresh legs to the Super Bowl. #WooWoo

This was an expected move and the Ravens are getting to work early releasing both Ingram and RG3. 

Mark Ingram was the heartbeat and attitude of the offense in 2019. He feels he still has a lot to offer in 2021 and I wish him well. However I’m not convinced he can be that guy anymore. If he couldn’t perform well in the Ravens running back-friendly offense this year, I’m not sure how he’ll fair in another offense. 

Mark Ingram, thanks for all you brought to the Ravens. You left an impact on the team that so few have done quite like that before. 

Derek Arnold

Another day where we’re reminded of the tough business of football. Though he was only here for two seasons, Ingram left his – excuse me here – Mark on the Baltimore Ravens. His long tough run to open the 2019 season in Miami announced his presence with authority, and he served as a wonderful leader and teammate throughout, even though his playing time and production took big hits in year two.

His “Big Truss, Woo Woo” press conference will live on in the minds of the Flock forever (hell, I even have a shirt commemorating it), we won’t forget his celebrations (the GIF above, the karate kick in Houston), and I am sure Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, J.K. Dobbins, and even Lamar Jackson will always remember the lessons he taught them.

I think he still has some tread on the tires, especially behind a solid offensive line (I also think he could have produced in Baltimore down the stretch when the team was playing better, but I understand why he was inactive).

Thanks for everything, 21!
