Ingram will be joining David Johnson as a one-two punch in the Texans backfield. The Texans are currently going through a organizational rebuild. But their quarterback Deshaun Watson wants no part of it.
The team is not fielding any trade offers for the former Clemson University star quarterback. Ingram finished the 2020 campaign with only 72 carries for 299 yards and two touchdowns over the entire year. Those numbers were completely down from his previous season in which he ran for over 1,000 yards.
