Saints' newest offensive weapon already showing off with highlight-reel play

That's because the Saints already had Mark Ingram, who rushed for over 1,000 yards last year, and had just signed Adrian Peterson in free agency.

Kamara proved early in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers, taking their first play from scrimmage to the house for a 50-yard touchdown, that the Saints may have known what they were doing after all.

Last year, New Orleans used Travaris Cadet as their pass-catching back, but he didn't quite show the same elusiveness as some of the Saints' more successful players who had previously occupied that role.

Kamara will likely line up in the backfield and the slot this season, and he also returned punts Sunday night.

He could be among the highest-scoring rookie running backs in a number of formats this season if Sunday's outburst was any indication of his role in the Saints' offense.
