I think you guys are underestimating Ingram. I think he'd be a significant upgrade for us at RB. Far better than Dixon and Edwards, and you still have those guys as well. We'd be much better off with him in the RB mix.
Fair to question if adding him to that mix is worth $7M APY or whatever it is that gets him. But adding him is clearly a significant upgrade to the position, IMO.
To expand on this:
In 2018 Ingram had the same Y/A as Zeke Elliot
In 2017 Ingram had the same Y/A as Kareem Hunt
In 2016 Ingram had the same Y/A as Zeke Elliot
In 2015 Ingram had the same Y/A as David Johnson
In 2014 Ingram had the same Y/A as Frank Gore
He is 5th among active players (min 750 attempts) in career Y/A. 3rd if I throw out Jamaal Charles as being retired and Cam Newton as being a QB. Trailing only Peterson and Zeke. Ahead of guys like Bell and Gurley and everybody else.
His age is certainly a red flag. A 30 y/o RB can fall off at any time. But we've seen a few more guys in recent years continue to perform past that age.
