When it comes down to it, the NFL is a business. Players go through the cycle of being released, signed, or traded all of the time. However, that doesn't mean it isn't hard for them as well as their teammates.

For example, take a look at what happened when Mark Ingram was released this week.

Ingram had been a running back for the Baltimore Ravens for the past two seasons before he was recently waived following the team's elimination from the NFL playoffs. His teammates made sure to give him a proper tribute on his way out by gifting him jerseys with personalized messages written on them.

Overall, Ingram rushed for 1,317 yards and 12 touchdowns during his time spent as a Raven and was a reliable option for what is known as the best rushing team in the league. In fact, he even made the Pro Bowl in 2019. The veteran ball carrier now heads into the offseason looking to start fresh and sign with a new team.

Ingram was a tough runner and hard worker, in addition to being an obvious leader in the clubhouse. Not every player released receives that kind of tribute.

Who knows where Ingram will end up next, but it is pretty clear that his Ravens teammates will be rooting for him no matter what.
