Alvin Kamara

Current Contract: $2.367 million per year

Alvin Kamara has been one of the most intriguing players of the offseason. Every fan knows by now that Kamara is entering the final year of his contract. That could mean big things for this upcoming season.

There are really two ways to go right now: play or hold out. There has been talking about the potential of Kamara holding out until the Saints decide to either pay him his market value or trade him to a team that will.

If he plays, then the Saints will have a decision to make at the end of the year on whether to re-sign him, tag him, or let him leave. All fans are currently hoping for the first option to take place, but no one really knows yet.

Either way, there is no doubt that Kamara is playing at a level high above the $2.3 million he is currently making. The entire reason that there is a debate about the first is that he is such a high-value target.

Current Projected Value: $14.9 million per year
