3 reasons extending Alvin Kamara is a no-brainer for the Saints
Number Three: His Versatility
Alvin Kamara may be the most versatile running back in the entire NFL.
He has played several positions in his career thus far. Kamara has returned kicks both on kickoff and punts, he has caught the ball as a running back and as a wide receiver, he has thrown the ball, and he has obviously ran the ball.
Kamara can do anything asked of him and he does it very well.
The three-time Pro Bowler really took the league by storm with his constant playmaking and turned into somewhat of a human joystick. He’s been a focal point of defenses, helping free up players like Michael Thomas and Jared Cook.
Kamara is agile and can break tackles effortlessly and in many different styles whether it be stiff-arming a defender to the turf or hurdling over them, Kamara will get the job done.
While we don’t know the Saints market for extending a running back, if anyone is worthy of staying in the organization long term, it’s Alvin Kamara.
