dude's gonna be just like he was last year, even worse when Brees retires and you have Jameis as your QB.

I dont know how its structured but i would imagine a good portion of his 34 million guaranteed would have been paid out. At that point there is nothing to regret

This screams deal that blows up in their face IMO. Come year 3 of this deal the Saints will be regretting it.

Doubt it.  I think Kamara will be the rare RB who actually outperforms his second contract.  You gotta remember he was very little tread on his tires.  He barely got touches at Tennessee being the backup to Jalen Hurd.  Then in his first two years at New Orleans he was sharing carries with Mark Ingram and last year he was banged up.

Alvin has yet to be a true every down RB for an entire season.  I believe his best years are ahead of him.  By the end of this deal, it will look like a good deal for the Saints rather than Kamara because I have a feeling he outperforms this contract.

Because the current crop of RBs in the league are significantly more talented than their predecessors in the last 20 years.

We are currently in the best era of RB talent since the 90s.  Saquon Barkley, Alvin Kamara, Joe Mixon, Christian McCaffrey, and Dalvin Cook are all elite generational talents.

Well, that's unprecedented hogwash. 

You can't even count on two hands the number of great, elite RBs that played in the 2000s and 2010s.

In the 2000s you had Marshall Faulk, LaDanian Tomlinson, and Edgerrin James.  Then in the 2010s you had Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch.  I see no other Hall of Famers from those eras.

I'll concede that the early 2000s were pretty good when it comes RBs.  We had some amazing runners during the early part of that decade.  But from around 2007-2016 you had pretty weak talent in the league when it came to the RB position.  Things have only turned around recently thanks to all the stud RBs that came out of the 2017 and 2018 drafts.

Sources: The #Saints  & star RB Alvin Kamara have reached an agreement on a huge 5-year contract extension worth $75M in new money. He gets $77.133M overall and a $15M signing bonus. Kamara cashes in. Agent Damarius Bilbo of Klutch Sports did the deal.  💰 💰 💰

Not that stupid as it looks. Kamara apparently wasn't very healthy last year, has great value as a receiver and the Saints are likely in a 1 year window, maybe 2 years. So you want your key players as happy as possible to get that extra 1-2% out of them that will decide the playoff games.

This is the contract breakdown. Basically it's a 4 year, $50m deal.

Seems like a really good deal for the Saints for most of the years on the contract

Where’s that saints fan that said back shots are the worst! And it’s very bad bad. @sammymvpknight or was it for another team to be worried abou? 

curious to know what area @sammymvpknight practices in as well? Was he just shooting off the cuff or does he deal with it on a daily(or weekly) basis.

Why all of a sudden are RBs getting big money like this?  

Because the market has finally shifted as it should of years ago.

Why are WR's who might score 10TD or have 100 rec getting $20M+?

Why are TE's who might score 10TD or have 100 rec getting $15M+?

DE, DT, OL, CB all getting 20M. 

People can argue all they want about how easily RB can be found, but when you have a special one ala McCaffrey,  Zeke, Saquon, Kamara that touch the ball 400x a year, put up 2K in total yds, 10+ TD, You lock them up.

If a Backup QB can make 20M, surely your Stud RB can make 15. Time for people to get over it.
