Brees impressed with versatility of rookie Kamara

(WVUE) - Saints rookie Alvin Kamara proved once again he's a force to be reckoned with by ground and air. He racked up 154 yards of total offense, including two touchdowns.

His 33-yard touchdown reception received one of the loudest roars by the Who-Dat Nation in the Saints victory over the Bucs. His six-yard touchdown run seemed like a virtual walk in the park, barely getting touched.

He's part of a rookie class that's turning heads throughout the NFL.

"We're not ready to send them to the Hall of Fame just yet, but I'm encouraged by some of the young guys," said Saints Head Coach Sean Payton.

"Listen, Alvin is doing a lot of good things. Very versatile, he can be in the game at any moment. Any personal group. We feel very comfortable with his skillset, said quarterback Drew Brees.
