The NFL held its Pro Bowl in Las Vegas for the first time this year. The game occurred at Allegiant Stadium, home to the Las Vegas Raiders. Many players were seen out on the Las Vegas Strip throughout the weekend.
Previously, the NFL held the Pro Bowl in Florida, Arizona and Hawaii, respectively. The game was long held in Hawaii before moving stateside following the 2016 season.
Kamara, one of the league’s best running backs, has been with the Saints since the 2017 season.
