Mark Ingram and Julio Jones Enjoying the World Cup in Brazil [PHOTOS]
World Cup fever has taken over much of the United States and it’s no different for a couple of former Alabama players, who have traveled down to Brazil to take in the festivities.
Saints’ running back Mark Ingram has followed the US team through the group stages and was in attendance as the Americans dropped their final Group Stage game to Germany.

Meanwhile, Falcons’ wide receiver Julio Jones has been bouncing around the country as well, taking in a couple of games in the process. He hasn’t taken on quite the patriotic look that his former teammate Ingram has.
