March 8 (UPI) — New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara isn’t slowing down this offseason, he’s dragging Jeeps during workouts.
The 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year posted a video Wednesday showing off his latest training regimen during his offseason in Louisiana. Kamara held a weight rack with at least 100 pounds on it while wearing a strap around his waist. The strap was hooked up to a longer rope, which was fastened to the back of a four-door Jeep Wrangler. Kamara got into a squat-walk position and briskly paced forward.
“Never hear y’all complaining when that check clear…GET YA MONEY!!!! •@coltcolletti_,” Kamara wrote on Instagram, tagging trainer Colt Colletti.
Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake — who briefly spent time at the University of Alabama with Drake — commented on the video.
“Put the team on your back then lil bro,” Drake wrote on Instagram.
