For Saints running back Mark Ingram, who’s in the midst of a career-year, the stakes are high. If he’s named a first-team All-Pro, Ingram’s contract voids, and he becomes a free agent, via Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.
Ingram has 806 rushing yards through 10 games; his career best came last year, with 1,043. As Triplett notes, however, Ingram has been particularly productive the past six games. If he can duplicate that performance, he’ll finish the year with 1,442 yards.
His current contract expires after 2018, at a base salary next year of $4 million. He signed the current four-year, $16 million deal to stay with the Saints after his rookie contract expired, and after the Saints didn’t pick up his fifth-year option.

The story said the decision is made by the 50 media members who vote on the Associated Press All-Pro team. We're a while away from this becoming an issue but it would be interesting to see what the Saints decide to do with Kamara—an emerging star at the position.
