Mark Ingram worked out for Dolphins on Monday

AP

The Miami Dolphins need a running back, what with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown becoming free agents, whenever free agency begins.  As a result, they’re kicking the tires on the 2009 Heisman winner.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Dolphins worked out running back Mark Ingram on Monday in Alabama.

The source says that Ingram looked “very fit and explosive,” and that the Dolphins are “very impressed.”

The Giants and the Patriots also are showing significant interest, according to the source.

All that said, there’s only a month to go until the draft, and the smokescreens will continue to get thicker as April 28 approaches.

  1. The only offensive player jersey I’ve owned in 30 years. The only college player jersey I’ve ever owned. If he’s half the player in the pros that he was at Bama, any team would be blessed to have him.

    Although the Giants wont address it…they need a quarterback. They did draft Phillip Rivers…but they got Eli instead.

    ahhahahahhahahahhhahhaaahha, that’s awesome peester!!

    Phil is 1000 times better than Sh-eli!! Giants are giant fools for ever making that trade!!!

  3. New England will work a deal with Detroit to move ahead of Miami.

    Detroit can still land Tyron Smith at 17th and will be able to pick up another pick in the process.

    Ingram is a weapon and everyone knows it, especially BB. There will be value in the bottom of the 1st to fill NE’s “Seymour” void and the team can take a RB early due to their extremely young defense.

    Envision the Patriot’s offense with Ingram behind Brady.

  4. i’m a fins fan and i would love to have him on the team but i also believe that the fins have more pressing needs than spending a first round pick on a rb (although seemingly a very good one)and when you take into consideration they dont have a second round pick i believe they should address other positions first and get a back or 2 in f/a.but then again this could just be a smoke screen to help take attention away from another player they really want

  5. NOOOOO!!!

    A team in need speed does not ANOTHER slow RB.

    Please let trade down in the first, get a QB or OL, then take Ryan Williams in the 2nd.

  6. Hey Giants Mark Ingram can be yours, in front of the pats, for your nineteenth and 52nd pick. Plus we’ll throw in Chowder for good measure. Lets get this going Jeff Ireland!

  7. Big time smokescreens. Whenever the Miami Dolphins say they’re very interested in a player in the draft, it means they’re not. Their history proves it.

  8. Even though offensive an defensive line are bigger needs for the Patriots, I think Ingram would be a great pick for them. The dirty little secret of the Patriots is that they have become soft. Ingram not only brings talent as a back but much needed physicality also. He also would allow Green-Ellis to be a #2 back (where he really belongs) and Woodhead to be a specialty or third down back (where he is best). Ingram, in my opinion, would be a great “portfolio” fit for the Patriots.

  9. hey tombradyswig and pewster… I hate to provide facts to someone in a fog of oblivion, but how many sb does rivers have? Eli is a winning QB but you would not know that because facts don’t enter into your analysis.

    WAIT………..

    Doesn’t Eli have a Super Bowl Ring??????

  11. A) The Dolphins should be trying to trade down in the first and pick up a 2nd rounder.

    To me, letting Ronnie Brown just walk away as a free agent, without even TRYING to re-sign him, is ridiculous. Ronnie Brown hasn’t carried more than 200 times in a season the last 4 years, he’s only 29, and he’s proven that when the Dolphins actually make a commitment to giving him the # of carries he needs, he’s a Pro Bowler.

    We ALREADY need a QB, and we ALREADY need interior OL help. Why open up this other huge hole on offense at RB? Re-sign Ronnie, pick up Darren Sproles in FA and concentrate on other areas (QB, OL, DB, DL, LB) in the draft. Rookie RBs get hurt every year, ESPECIALLY if they are expected to carry the full load. Do we really think that Ingram can just walk in and handle the full 16 game load of RB duty?

  12. Hey, rockymtnphinfan, guys like you think if you play Madden suddenly you know how trades work. Just stop it, you’re embarrassing yourself.
