Will Drew Brees retire? has dominated offseason headlines in New Orleans for the previous few seasons. However, now that he has officially retired, we can take a closer look at the players that will still be on the pitch. Alvin Kamara, the running back who signed a significant contract last year to remain with the Saints for the foreseeable future, will probably play an even bigger role this season.

Nevertheless, Kamara claims he hasn’t touched any of his NFL money yet and doesn’t intend to touch this $75 million either, despite the financial bonanza and his wages from four seasons in the league.

Kamara reflects on how he first learnt the significance of money while watching his mother work numerous jobs to support the family in a recent episode of Uninterrupted’s “Kneading Dough.”

Kamara said, adding that his NFL paycheck is more than he or his mother have ever had before, “It would be a shame if I got this and lost it.” “I’m going to continue doing what I’ve been doing and only spend money on what I actually need. I’m not going to live beyond my means or do anything extreme.”

This is a wise decision by Kamara given the worrying amount of NFL players and other former sports who go bankrupt. The running back added that he never permits anything to occur with his money without first giving his consent. Although Kamara takes efforts to prevent it, a dishonest accountant might still get their hands on the money of other players.
