Alvin Kamara’s Net Worth: $964,443
Kamara’s 2017 salary cap charge is $708,193, while his annual contract is valued at $964,443, with a guarantee of $972,772. Let’s take a look at his career and see how he has earned his money!
The Early Years
Kamara was born in Georgia to Liberian parents. Growing up, he got his first shot on the field playing high school football. Starting his college career, Kamara originally attended the University of Alabama and Hutchinson Community College, before ultimately going to the University of Tennessee.
At the University of Tennessee, Kamara originally played under Butch Jones. By the conclusion of the 2016 season, Kamara certainly proved himself, being able to forgo his senior season to enter the 2017 NFL Draft, although he only started in around a third of his games.
In early December 2017, Kamara had been able to score a third-quarter touchdown against the Panthers. According to SB Nation, this could help him score the title of “Offensive Rookie of the Year.” As described on social media, the situation helped paint Kamara as an underdog.
According to ESPN:
Kamara leads the NFL with 7.0 yards per carry this season. And he has already become just the third rookie in NFL history with more than 600 rushing yards and 600 receiving yards in a season — with four games still to play.
But the number that means most of all is 9-3. That’s where the Saints are now, sitting alone atop the NFC South standings.
