In addition to Bush,who is due to make $11 million in base salary, the Saints have Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory, but Ingram can do what all of those guys do. And he’s younger and could be better — immediately. A few hours after the draft ended, Bush added:

Congrats to Mark Ingram on being selected to New Orleans. He will be a great addition to the Saints backfield just as he was in Alabamaless than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply
