The 23-year-old running back doesn’t have his trophy on a special shelf or on the wall — it’s actually buried in his closet.

“Yeah, it’s under a whole bunch of [expletive], honestly. I can’t even lie. I haven’t found a spot,” Kamara told GQ in an interview. “It’s still in the case that they sent it to me in. I opened it once, I looked at it, and I put it in the closet.]]> 5273110 Thu, 16 Aug 2018 7:30:01 EDT Saints Wire
<![CDATA[Jonathan Williams making a move?]]> Mark Ingram during his suspension

Mark Ingram isn’t making it easy to forget that he will be suspended for the first four games of the season. It seems like he has a carry every day that makes you take note of his presence on the field. He just moves differently than the guys contending to fill in for him. As far as that battle goes, it looks like Jonathan Williams is making a run up the depth chart. Hopefully, he gets a chance to play against Arizona’s starters so we can find out how good he really is. (The New Orleans Advocate)

FF Today's Take: HC Sean Payton has stated multiple times he does not expect Alvin Kamara's workload to increase much during Ingram's absence, leaving the door for someone like Williams to get some solid playing time in September. It's not inconceivable someone with as much talent as Williams could impress enough during Ingram's absence to carve out a bit of a role for himself even after Ingram returns. Still, he's a late-round lottery ticket in deeper leagues at best.]]> 5270868 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 17:45:01 EDT
<![CDATA[Alvin Kamara deserves more props for his pass protection]]> Alvin Kamara can catch. We know that he can run – even between the tackles. We know that he can return kickoffs and score. We’ve even found out that he can sing. But we’re quickly learning that the young New Orleans Saints superstar has another skill: hanging back and picking up a pass rusher on blocking duty.

Very nice job by Kamara picking up this A gap blitz. Allowed the 3rd down to be converted #NorrisNotes

<![CDATA[Alvin Kamara has some choice words about Minnesota Miracle]]> Alvin Kamara has a colorful way of looking at the end of last season. And that color is primarily blue. In an entertaining profile of the second-year back by Master Tesfatsion of Bleacher Report, Kamara riffed on the crushing end of the Saints season, in which the 17-point deficit they erased in [more]]]> 5266804 Wed, 08 Aug 2018 12:54:01 EDT
