The Baltimore Ravens are reportedly at least partially engaged in Le’Veon Bell discussions, but signing Mark Ingram appears to be much more likely.

The New York Jets have long been favored to land Bell, and that sentiment remains. However, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the Ravens have a shot at the dynamic dual-threat running back.

Rapoport also shared Tuesday that the Ravens are discussing a potential deal with Ingram, and that they are the “favorites” to sign him.

Obviously, Bell is the big splash and could do wonders for the Ravens’ passing game and Lamar Jackson if he were to sign in Baltimore.

However, when it comes to what the Ravens have to accomplish overall after losing defensive stars this offseason, perhaps it makes more sense to take the cheaper, yet sill effective Ingram.
