News broke on Wednesday that the Houston Texans would trade running back Mark Ingram to the New Orleans Saints.

The trade has yet to be officially processed, and one of the aspects the teams are working out is compensation as well as Ingram’s contract.

The Texans are going to pay Ingram a $250,000 bonus as part of his one-year extension that keeps him under contract with the Saints through the 2022 season. The maximum value of the contract is $2.8 million.

The compensation the Texans are getting is the Saints’ 2024 seventh-round pick.

The move certainly helps the Saints out with their zero-margin salary cap situation, but the 2024 seventh-round pick hardly seems helpful when it comes to rebuilding the Texans, who are 1-6 on the season and projected to finish as the second-worst team in the NFL.

No wonder Brandin Cooks was upset Wednesday.
