Kamara's holdout

Recommended Posts

How long will it go for? Are the Saints likely to pay him before the season starts? Any New Orleans fans out there who can help me not lose my s--t about this?

With Kamara on the decline and having been injured, maybe the Saints roll with Tae, given he was able to produce last year (#BuiltbyUCF)

 

Perhaps its time to look beyond Brees and Kamara.

I was wondering this too. I don’t believe Kamara is on the decline he’s in his prime at age 25. He’s on my roster and I’m scared he won’t be ready for week one.

On the decline? This is a joke,  right?

Decline? He's 25 years old and healthy. How exactly is he declining?

When I meant decline, it is more like  he is trending downwards. Injury prone, attempts, yards and tds down last year from previous. 
 

Now with contract looming, he might not be worth the money versus drafting a young stud or sticking with Murray for 1-2 years.

Drew Brees is not letting one of his best playmakers sit out in one of his last seasons. They'll get a deal done, don't worry about it.

He injured his knee in the Jacksonville game and was playing at about 75% for the rest of the season. One injury that he's not allowed to fully heal from before strapping the cleats back on the next week isn't exactly injury prone.

Yea I think I’d be knocking Cook and Kamara down my draft list. I didn’t have to worry about it at either of my drafts last weekend but If I had picks in the 3-5 range I think I’d feel more comfortable with Henry or even taking CEH

Yeah, unfortunately I already kept him for an 8th rd pick. Not like drafting him in the first, but i could have kept Boyd for a 13th instead...

Oh I’d be totally fine with that. Just would want a safer pick for that high 1st rounder. I got Burned by Bell the year he sat out so I’m gun shy on stuff like this. I don’t expect Kamara or Cook to sit out the season I’d just be concerned about them milking injuries over concern for their health and lack of contract security

I have a very hard time seeing how Kamara misses much time.  He is getting 900K and I can see why a guy with his talent would want to lock it up.  The Saints are a significantly different team without Kamara, both sides need to get this done. 

 

Edit: 2.1 million

Anyone feeling much less confident after today’s report that Saints are open to trading Kamara? This is ugly.

That was a surprise to me. I didn't know things between him and the Saints were so bad.

It's not a report, it's speculation. Saints FO is notoriously quiet on contract talks. I'm guessing a new deal gets done really soon or he simply returns to camp and all this talk dies out.

Yep, this is Lev Bell redux.

 

Sorry, Alvin, but you don't deserve 16 mil a year. To do so you'd be on the field for every snap like CMC, perform better when on the field, and you'd have his spotless injury history as well.

I really hope you're right, and you definitely know more about the Saints than I do, but it's definitely not looking good. Nothing positive about publicly claiming that you're open to trading a player.

I'd believe Ian Rappaort before I believe Josina Anderson

Good to know. Thanks!

Supposed to be back at practice tomorrow. Supposedly he had an epidural in his back that had him off the practice field for a few days.

 

As for contact negotiations,  supposedly they are close to agreeing on an extension. About 2 million apart.

If they are only two million apart there is no way this will not get done.  Brees would give up two million from his contract just to get it done.  He will be signed - I am guessing slightly more than Joe Mixon but not reaching $15 million.  I'd say 4 years and $54 million

One of these days people will learn that about 95% of the reports about what is going on in sports is speculation, not a fact or even "something we're hearing from our sources". 

 

When there's a Saints story I can pretty much just come here and look for your posts to get the straight poop.
