Alvin Kamara makes NFL history during first half of Saints vs. Falcons
Alvin Kamara continues to make his mark in the NFL.
The former Tennessee standout showcased his rushing and catching ability in his 2 years in Knoxville en route to being a 3rd round pick by the Saints in 2017. That’s continued at the professional level, as the Atlanta-area native has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his first 3 seasons.
Kamara made NFL history against his hometown Atlanta Falcons during a Week 11 rivalry matchup on Sunday as he recorded 28 yards on 7 carries in the first half despite 0 receiving yards. Still, it was enough to make him the only player in NFL history to have at least 500 yards receiving and 500 yards rushing in his first 4 seasons.
His total for the year through the first half of Sunday’s game sits at 514 yards rushing and 648 yards receiving, for a total of 1,162 yards from scrimmage. And with 6 weeks left following this one, he could be on pace to set a career-best in scrimmage yards before the season is up.
Kamara is still relatively early on in his NFL career, but he continues to show that he is set to be a star in the league for years to come.
