Kamara put his signing bonus right in the bank.
When rookie athletes make it to the pros, whether it be the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL etc., they take their newfound fortune and spend it on something luxurious. Whether it be a shiny new watch, a brand new Mercedes, or a lavish home, it's something we see and hear about all the time.
But not New Orleans Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara. He just wanted some wings. Some mother fuckin' wings.
In a story by MMQB’s Ben Baskin, the 22-year-old star spoke about playing in New Orleans and what he purchased after that signing bonus came through the wire.
He had no desire to make an outlandish purchase after he was drafted, because there was nothing he wanted. “I got my signing bonus and I put that shit in the bank and I went and got some motherfuckin wings,” he says.
Baskin reports that before going out to a club one night, Kamara ordered “100 BBQ and lemon pepper wings and several colorful daiquiris.” Additionally, Kamara also has a thing for Airheads and he has a drawer in his kitchen filled with his favorite snacks.
“Airhead Bites, Xtreme Airhead Sour Belts, regular-sized Airheads and mini Airheads—every flavor except Watermelon, because that’s Kamara’s favorite and he’s already eaten all of them.”
Kamara and the Saints will host the Carolina Panthers in the Wildcard round of the NFL Playoffs this Sunday at 4:40pm ET. The game will air on Fox.
