2 reasons the New Orleans Saints won’t overpay for Alvin Kamara
Any New Orleans Saints’ fan knew that there might be a day when Alvin Kamara was wearing a different uniform than the black and gold; it might be quicker than you expected.
If you have been a New Orleans Saints fan for any length of time or if you have been an avid reader of Who Dat Dish, you know that the contract of Alvin Kamara is up at the end of the year, and the Saints are going to have to make a decision soon as to what they want to do.
We have speculated that Kamara might hold out this season as to not get hurt and sacrifice the money he will make next season. That does not look or seem to become a reality at least at the present moment.
However, that does not negate the fact that the Saints are going to have to either pay him big money or let him go to another team. If they are planning on not re-signing him, they should be looking to trade him to get something back.
If they are planning on re-signing him, they need to begin thinking about what the price might be. According to spotrac.com, Kamara’s market value in the NFL is $14.9 million per year or $44.7 million for 3-years or $74.5 million for 5-years.
Kamara is coming off of a contract worth less than $1 million per year. That will be a $13 million pay raise with the Saints. Here are two reasons though that the one thing the Saints will not do is overpay for the star running back next offseason.
