New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara arrest details

Kamara is being charged with a felony. This was the Saints running back’s fifth trip to the Pro Bowl in his NFL career out of Tennessee by way of Alabama. Up to this point of his career, he has been a perennial Pro Bowler every season since the Saints used their third-round selection on the versatile tailback in the 2017 NFL Draft. This is the latest sign of trouble in the Saints offseason.

With long-time head coach Sean Payton opting for retirement and the Saints having no long-term future at the quarterback position, they could be heading toward a rebuild. New Orleans has the worst salary cap situation in the league. Now that arguably their best player is facing felony charges for battery with substantial bodily harm, it is only getting worse.

This is a developing story and there will be more fallout in the coming days and weeks.
