Mark Ingram is on an NFL-USO tour with several other football personalities, and on Wednesday the peer pressure from the rest of the guys made the Saints running back take on a well-trained military K9.
NFL Network’s Marc Sessler is covering the tour, and he tweeted out a video of Ingram failing against the dog.
Ingram is a two-time Pro Bowl running back and a Heisman Trophy winner, and that dog took him down in seconds.
So what made the Saints back want to do this in the first place? In a video from Sessler, he explained that he was almost forced to do it by people around him.
Nationals: 2B Daniel Murphy (right knee surgery) needs another week of running the bases at full speed before a possible rehab assignment.
Mets: RHP Noah Syndergaard (1-0, 5.40 ERA) starts when the Mets open a series Monday in Miami. He is 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in five career starts versus the Marlins, who will start RHP Jose Urena (0-1, 4.91).
Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (1-1, 1.64) opposes Atlanta’s Julio Teheran (0-0, 10.13) on Monday when the Nationals host the Braves in the first of three games. Scherzer is 7-6 with a 3.92 ERA against Atlanta.
“He’s hard to bring down. One of the reason’s I’m excited to be with the Raiders is to join forces with Lynch,” Gruden continued. “But, we’ll see what happens. Obviously, we have to take a look at the entire roster, but I’m counting on him. I’m counting on him being a big part of our football team.”
While the Raiders also have running backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard on their roster, Martin is expected to be the No. 2 running back on the squad.
In addition to the $1 million roster bonus, Lynch is slated to make a base salary of $4 million in 2018, per Spotrac.
“This was a heck of a challenge,” Bossard said.
“For some reason, when I’m out on the field, I don’t feel anything. My hands are nice and warm before I leave the dugout, but honestly, I don’t feel anything as far as weather.” — Archer, who wore short sleeves.
