3 reasons the New Orleans Saints should be thankful for Alvin Kamara
He’s a highly-talented running back
Fans should be thankful for Kamara’s dedication to his teammate and his desire to prove himself. Obviously, on top of everything, fans should be thankful for just how dominant he’s been throughout his NFL career.
Kamara came into the league as a third-round pick from Tennessee, helping bring a more versatile attack with Mark Ingram providing the thunder to his lighting. Immediately upon arriving in the Big Easy, he made his presence felt.
He had his first double-digit receptions game just four weeks into his career. He also had four straight games in the middle of the season where he recorded over 100 all-purpose yards with one game nearing 200.
13 touchdowns and 1,554 yards as a rookie is impressive. He upped those totals as a second-year pro before seeing them dwindle in an injury-prone 2019 campaign. However, the team has Latavius Murray slot in as an important factor as well.
Kamara has been a force, and for these three reasons, fans need to be thankful for the elusive 25-year-old.
