Mark Ingram: ‘They keep bringing up my age, man’

Three days into his 12th NFL training camp, former Alabama All-American Mark Ingram was asked how he felt as the league’s second-oldest running back.

“They keep bringing up my age, man,” Ingram said. “No, I’m just blessed man. I’m thankful. I’m still here playing.

“I feel good, man. Obviously, just a lot of experiences, a lot of opportunities, a lot of years, successes, failures, all those things.

 I don’t feel like the second-oldest running back in the league. Who’s the first?”

Actually, Ingram is the third-oldest running back on an NFL training-camp roster, but the two players older than the New Orleans Saints ball-carrier haven’t shouldered the load throughout their careers that Ingram has.

The Buffalo Bills’ Taiwan Jones, who turned 34 on Tuesday, hasn’t had a rushing attempt in the past two seasons, although he has been on the field for 515 special-teams plays during that span.
