METAIRIE — The Saints got one of their two-first round picks signed and on the field Saturday morning just before they wrapped up their second practice of training camp.
Running back Mark Ingram, the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Alabama, signed his contract and hurriedly threw on a uniform before jogging onto the field just after 10:30 a.m.
Ingram was merely a spectator, however, for the final 35 minutes of the 2-hour, 15-minute workout. He’ll likely be in the mix for Sunday’s practice at 8:50 a.m., which is also open to the public.
Ingram was the second of the Saints’ two first-round draft picks in April. He was selected with the 28th overall selection after the Saints acquired the pick from the New England Patriots in exchange for their second-rounder this year and a first-round selection in 2012.
The Saints also came to terms Saturday morning with linebacker Martez Wilson, the first of their two third-round picks. Wilson, a 6-foot-4, 250-pounder, should also see his first action of camp Sunday.
The signing of Ingram and Wilson means the Saints have five of their six draft picks under contract.
The only one that remains unsigned yet is their top pick — defensive end Cameron Jordan, the 24th overall selection in the draft.
