I Have Some More on The Eagles and Mark Ingram

Photo credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, I posted that the Eagles and Saints did indeed have a conversation about trading Jason Kelce to the Saints for Mark Ingram. The conversation was the Eagles doing due diligence and perhaps not much more. I’m hearing that nothing is imminent, but that acquiring Ingram isn’t totally off the table. For instance… the Saints could cut Ingram later in the offseason if Adrian Peterson appears to be his old self in mini camps.

The Saints have Peterson, rookie Alvin Kamara, and Ingram, who has butted heads with Sean Payton in the past. Ingram carries a $5.2 million cap hit this year and a dead cap hit of $3.7 million. On the surface, it seems like it wouldn’t make much sense for the Saints to cut him. But, when you dig deeper, you’ll see that Ingram, according to Sportrac, carries an only $2.1 million dead cap hit if he’s cut after June 1, saving the Saints $3.1 in cap space this year.

Yesterday, a Bleacher Report article brought up the possibility of Ingram getting cut, a suggestion that was summarily dismissed by Saints blog Canal Street Chronicles. But, when you consider the cap savings and the fact that Ingram could be the odd man out with Peterson and a rookie running back, it’s not all that crazy.

    1. ahahaha. Nick Kayal. Dude still thinks he has a shot in the business. He should go teach Radio 101 at his local high school.

        1. Comey would still have his job if he had prosecuted Hillary. He had a mountain of evidence and did nothing with it. Hillary continues to hurt our country. Lock her up.

    2. Zero chance they get him. They don’t need to spend all that money for a mediocre rb. Bull shit post Kyle.

          1. I seen Nick pissin down the linc las year. It’s true , the guys got a fuckin sleeve of tennis balls in the pants.

  1. Anything on me yet? I mean we’re only closing in on 24 hours since it broke. Not like that is an eternity in today’s news cycle. Maybe you can pump out another Lowry story. I hear his mom thinks Philly is a good fit too.

  2. Marcus Hayes did a nice piece on the piece..maybe a little cut and paste magic they Kyle

  3. My top 5 neo-nazi bands:
    1. Skrewdriver – just great guys
    2. Razors in the Night
    3. 4-skins
    4. Combat 84 -curb stomped John Gonzalez one night and I never laughed so hard!
    5. Reuben Frank Band -so I’m a homer, sue me

      1. She has talent oozing out of every orifice .

    1. Only until he finalizes his deal with WIP. First, weekends with Rob Charry. Then a promotion to a glorious sidekick job on the new morning show with a host yet to be determined. He is an everyman don’t forget. Despite the fact that he bullied an elderly fan for daring to have a Fire Andy Reid sign. F Jason Kelce.

        1. The bully in real life. Especially when he’s an overpaid kiss ass millionaire who thinks flexing his muscle going up against some schlubs with a sign is going to keep him employed.

  4. Guy seems to be a tad light in the loafers. Look for him in a reality show about him becoming a broad in a few years.

  5. Is he a Philly guy though? Did he once live here? Does he like cheesesteaks? I know that’s the most important thing when it comes to athletes in this city. Does he get “us”?

    1. YOU stay away from her. I’ve chatted her up at several events and think there may be a future there.

    1. So you let Kyle spray yer face for a gig then he cuts you loose anyway? Disgraceful. Sooooo, can I get yer digits???

      1. Thats disgusting. Who in the right mind wants an old hag like her? I prefer getting them in their prime. Low investment high reward. As long as no one finds out….

  6. Riveting news Kyle, the Eagles have mild interest in a low impact RB. More evidence you are mailing it in these days, I can only assume the days of this paying full time money are numbered.

  7. Drew Rosenhaus couldn’t get you paid. Good luck with the hrssmnt suit. I’ll keep giving hot takes all day all long sweet cheeks.

  8. I won quick slants so Gunner got a bushy salt and pepper goatee to go with his mustache! #Frankandhairybeanbag

    1. You got me this time! Next time I’m gonna have Kyle fill in for me. Misanelli, myrtetus and rube are all goin down….on kyle.

  9. Let’s just get to it

    1. We’re living in uncertain, scary times everyone. Every time you think to yourself “can he sink any lower?” WELL HE JUST DONE DID IT. Firing the man leading the investigation of you is some serious serious sh1t. To fire him for what he did to Should Be President Clinton — the very thing you praised and used to your advantage during the campaign — is categorically insane. Impeachment proceeding should begin tomorrow. They won’t. Rs are spineless, pathetic cowards. Our hope is journalism. Reporting. Leaks. Truth. The light of the truth will be too strong for this Orange Faced Goon to run from.

    2. But I mean seriously to not even think that there would be a negative reaction to this? How dumb are the people around this sorry excuse for a man? How dumb he is? I mean we know he’s stone cold stupid and surrounds himself with incompetent yes men, but for the love of Allah.

    3. The Phillies bullpen. My goodness. And Eickhoff? Pretty solid last year and pretty good to start the year. Now he can’t locate his fastball and is leaving everything up? He doesn’t throw hard enough to get away with that. At least it appears they’ve found something in Altherr. Hernandez and Herrera are solid. Alfaro is coming up. Maybe Hoskins? Maybe one of the outfielders? Maybe Crawford? You get 1-2 more internal contributors, you can be set by 2019 after throwing money at Macahdo and such. But of course, then there’s pitching….

    4. Congrats to Ryan Howard on a great career. Speaking of stories you won’t see on Crossing Twitter Feeds…

    5. Mike Miss took a major shot at Rob/Harry today. Said they stole their “Nooner” bit from him. Wasn’t a friendly jab. I get Mike having an ego – he is basically keeping that station alive considering how putrid Cuz is doing – but that rat faced producer Martinez needs to shut up. Anybody could do that job. He also needs to keep a paper bag over his face. Good lord.

    6. Better Call Saul had one of the best episodes of TV in 2017 this week. Magnificent. Michael McKean hot damn. Emmy please.

    7. In all honesty, is anyone listening to Kyle Scott’s Morning Zoo Podcast? I have zero interest but am eager to here some unbiased views on it.

    8. This is NOT America. It’s shameful enough actual human beings thought this ape should lead the free world. If you support him now, you are anti-American. You are loyal to Trump. Not to the flag. Not to the country. To a 70 year millionaire (he’s not a billionaire) who wants to fucccc his own daughter. Pick a side,

    1. ^^^ this is the best content I’ve read on this site in the last 2 wks. Well done as always, PJFCP!

      also, if given the choice, I would choose to listen to running lawnmowers for 2 hours instead of Kyle’s substandard circle jerk of a podcast.

    2. I would much rather listen to Kyle’s podcast than Pop Pop and Fake South Philly.

  10. What’s it like being exposed for the fraud that you are… scheftie toasted your premature reporting you’ve been getting lucky with all winter.
