Ingram is seeking a contract extension as he enters the last year of his deal. After the Chargers made Joey Bosa the highest paid defensive player in NFL history, Ingram hopes to get his next chunk of change.
“It’s always fun having Melvin out here,” tight end Hunter Henry said. “Obviously, he’s a tremendous player. A leader on this team. He’s been around for a long time. He’s so much fun to go against.

Ingram returning to practice over three weeks before the season opener indicates that while he might not be excited with his contract situation.
