Plenty of NFL players have done strange things on and off the field… it’s usually no surprise at this point and it tends to be the same group of attention-seekers each time. But as of this past week of NFL games, a new one has emerged — and he has a lot of people talking about what he wore during the game.
Alvin Kamara, the stud running back for the New Orleans Saints, drew immediate attention Monday night after folks spotted something bizarre when he got to the stadium. See for yourself and tell us what you think about his attire…
As players arrived at Mercedes-Benz Superdome for Monday’s game between New Orleans and Washington, Saints running back Alvin Kamara appeared wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey and a red ball cap with the slogan “Make Africa Home Again:”

The 2017 Pro Bowler and Georgia native didn’t exactly explain his hat and why he is pining for Africa. However, the player’s mother is a Liberian immigrant.
Still, Kamara has been one of the Saints’ players often seen protesting during the playing of the national anthem, sometimes staying seated during the song and other times taking a knee.
The start of the 2018 season proved that the more virulent anthem protesters are determined to continue their protests. And this past weekend, with the debut of Eric Reid as a Carolina Panther, Week Five saw one of the league’s original anthem protesters once again taking a knee during the nation’s theme.
