Alvin Kamara, the star running back for the New Orleans Saints, got in trouble with the law in February. The running back was arrested and charged with "battery resulting in substantial bodily harm." He was released on a $5,000 bond.

This has painted the Saints star in a new light. Reports suggest Kamara might avoid a suspension altogether, but his future is still uncertain.

Amidst all the drama, Te'a Cooper, who most recently played for the Los Angeles Sparks in the WNBA and is reportedly dating Kamara, expressed her support for the running back in a heartfelt Instagram post.

"Happy Birthday to MY MAN MY MAN MY MAN MY MAN 🖤🖤🖤 today Is all about you 🥺🖤 what I love most about you is your selfless heart, courageous spirit, & loyalty. I don’t just love you I respect you. I’m so proud of you, no matter what happens in life you always keep going and remain solid 🖤 everyday we celebrate each other BUT TODAY IS THE DAY THE REALEST WAS BORN AND IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU!"

Kamara may have lost a few fans over the incident, but Cooper is still by his side.

Looking ahead to Alvin Kamara and the Saints' 2022-23 season

Should the talented back avoid a suspension, then the New Orleans Saints will be sitting pretty for the upcoming season.

Jameis Winston is recovering from an ACL injury, but if he comes back healthy, the Saints will have most of the offensive core that went 5-2 to start last season.


They'll also get Michael Thomas back and Jarvis Landry, who signed a one-year deal in free agency.

Their first-round draft pick was spent on Chris Olave, a talented wide receiver out of Ohio State. Given the talent on paper, the offense has a good chance to be one of the league's top units next season.


The defense, led by Marshon Lattimore and Marcus Davenport, will probably be a strong unit again. They've even added Tyrann Mathieu from Kansas City to the mix this season on a three-year deal worth $33 million.

If New Orleans can stay healthy and Kamara stays out of legal trouble, the Saints should be in a position to compete with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the NFC South title.
