Alvin Kamara breaks NFL record that has stood since the late 1980s
Alvin Kamara put together a massive first half during the New Orleans Saints’ game against the Seattle Seahawks on “Monday Night Football”, hauling in 8 catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.
Kamara’s had a remarkable NFL career, and he’s a handful of games into his 5th season in the league. Not only is the former Tennessee star a skilled running back, but he’s a reliable pass catcher, providing the Saints a versatile offensive weapon.
Kamara broken the 3,000-yard rushing mark for his career in 2020. On Monday, in his 66th game, he went over 3,000 receiving yards for his career. According to ESPN, he’s the fastest-ever player to do so, breaking a record that has stood for over 3 and a half decades.
Per @ESPNStatsInfo Alvin Kamara tonight reached 3000 rushing and 3000 receiving yards in his 66th career game––fastest in NFL history. Previous fastest: Roger Craig in 70 games.

Roger Craig, who entered the league in 1983, finished with 8,189 rushing yards and 4,911 receiving yards in 11 seasons. Kamara’s not yet through his 5th season, so time will tell how much more he’ll continue to add on to what’s been an incredible stat line thus far.
