New Orleans Saints working again Alvin Kamara is reportedly searching for a “reworked” contract earlier than the beginning of the 2024 season.

“I can verify he missed the ultimate day of minicamp and that was contract-related,” ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Sunday on SportsCenter. “He is bought two years left on his deal, due $11.8 million this 12 months. The issue is subsequent 12 months he is due $25 million non-guaranteed. The Saints, there is no approach that they will pay that.

“And so, I am instructed Kamara is open to doing a reworked two-year deal, strengthen his ensures in 12 months one. They’ve talked about it. Up to now, not lots of momentum. We’ll see if one thing shakes out. He might be a risk to overlook coaching camp if they do not get one thing performed earlier than late July.”

Kamara, who turns 29 in July, signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Saints in 2020. The deal included a $22.4 million base wage for the 2025 season that was virtually sure by no means to be paid. Whereas it artificially inflated the worth of Kamara’s contract, that quantity was at all times going to be decreased or renegotiated.

Kamara missed 4 video games as a result of damage final season and continued his refined decline as an all-purpose playmaker. He rushed for a career-low 694 yards and 5 touchdowns whereas including 466 yards and one landing as a receiver. These 466 receiving yards got here on 75 receptions, resulting in a career-low 6.2 yards per reception common.

Regardless of the slight decline, Kamara went over 1,000 whole yards for the seventh straight season and stays one of many NFL’s most versatile backs. He is seemingly not searching for an extension however quite a reworked contract that provides him some monetary consolation both this or subsequent season.

“I perceive what, sort of, the phrase has been, doing one thing completely different and all people being right here,” Kamara told reporters after skipping the final day of necessary minicamp. “For me, it was simply, I sort of simply caught to what I do know. I do not assume any of my teammates took offense to it actually. Like I stated … I discuss to lots of these dudes each different day. It’s what it’s. It is like ‘Oh there’s various things pulling’ and this and that. I had a household final 12 months. It is not one thing that is pulling on me. … Probably the most worrying factor for me proper now could be that my left rear tire has low stress. All the pieces else, I am good. I really feel nice. That is that. I really feel good, I am doing what I’ve at all times performed.”

The Saints didn’t make any noteworthy modifications to their working again depth chart this offseason, so Kamara is in a relative place of energy. He is clearly forward of fellow veteran Jamaal Williams and second-year working again Kendre Miller, so the Saints might look to appease Kamara by providing him a number of additional million with the information that is possible his final season in New Orleans.

On the very least, the transfer might open up some room for a Saints franchise that has been kicking the wage cap can down the highway for years. Kamara carries an $18.6 million cap quantity in 2024.

Miller, a 2023 third-round choose, is a possible inheritor obvious who might take over the backfield in 2025.
