AVONDALE, La. (AP) - Saints coach Sean Payton says the club has not decided whether to exercise a 2015 team option on running back Mark Ingram's contract.
New Orleans already has exercised a similar option on defensive end Cameron Jordan worth $6.97 million in base salary. The club has until May 3 to do so for Ingram, who like Jordan was a 2011 first-round draft choice.
Ingram's option reportedly would cost the Saints $5.2 million, and the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner said this week he isn't sure what New Orleans will do.
Payton, who played golf in the pro-am for the PGA Zurich Classic on Wednesday, says waiting provides additional flexibility.
Hampered by a toe injury, Ingram rushed for 386 yards and one touchdown last season, averaging 4.9 yards per carry.
