It wasn’t the flashiest day in the NFL for rookies, but a slow-building superstar scenario might be happening with the New Orleans Saints with their recent trading of a future Hall of Famer.
Rookie RB Alvin Kamara put up his strongest game of the year so far in a 30-10 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday with 10 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown and six catches for 84 yards and a score.
He’s still sharing time with Mark Ingram — a seventh-year pro and former Heisman winner — but both have picked up steam since the Saints traded Adrian Peterson on Oct. 10. For the year, Kamara has 311 yards on 52 carries — Peterson had 37 on Sunday alone for the Cardinals — and 341 yards on 37 catches with a total of five TDs for the year.
