It is the type of afternoon that makes longtime locals and unsuspecting visitors curse out loud. With the humidity level keeping pace with the soaring temperature on the second day of Saints training camp, coach Sean Payton can’t help but joke (we think) about cooking eggs on the sidewalk. And yet, the heat is not the thing that wipes the perpetual smile from the face of Pro Bowl running back Alvin Kamara, who is known for his calm and cool. The culprit is another post-practice question about whether he will have to carry an increased workload this season following the retirement of Drew Brees, the future Hall of Fame quarterback who owns not only every major statistical passing mark in franchise annals but also league records for career completions and yards passing and the second-best totals for touchdown passes and completion percentage.
