The Saints agreed to terms with Vikings free-agent running back Latavius Murray on Tuesday to a four-year deal maxing out reportedly at $14.4 million, a source confirmed to The Athletic. He was suspended for the Saints' first four games previous year because of a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Murray joins after spending each of the past two seasons with the Vikings.

The 29-year-old Thomas formed a formidable secondary alongside Richard Sherman, Byron Maxwell, Brandon Browner and Kam Chancellor that took the Seahawks to two Super Bowls and victory in Super Bowl XLVIII. Coincidentally, Murray actually scored a touchdown against his new team during the divisional round of the 2017 playoffs, a game where Minnesota beat the Saints 29-24 after scoring on the "Minneapolis Miracle" with no time left in the game.

Running back Mark Ingram is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens when NFL free agency opens at 3 p.m. CDT Wednesday, ESPN and the NFL Network reported. He has spent his entire nine-year career with the Seattle Seahawks, one of the leaders of a defense that has perennially been among the NFL's best. Expect that to change quickly in pass-happy New Orleans. I feel like we can do this type of thing for many more years.

"Thank you to the Vikings organization for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do", Murray wrote on Instagram.
