You can count New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara among the list of NFL players who aren’t crazy about the idea of a 17-game regular season.

The NFL is expected to make the change official in 2021 and Kamara wasted no time letting his feelings be known.

Over the weekend, Kamara took to social media to share his thoughts which were straight to the point and something that a lot of NFL players are thinking.

“Sh*t dumb… as hell,” Kamara wrote on Twitter.

And in case you weren’t sure how Kamara felt by that message, he made it very clear that he thinks a 17-game regular season is “dumb.”

Considering the league prides itself on “player safety,” it is easy to see why players are pointing out a double-standard and unhappy with the thought of playing another regular-season game.

The toll a season takes on a player is significant, and adding an extra game will only add to the aches and pains they feel entering the postseason, offseason, and career after football. You can’t say you are for the health and safety of players while forcing them to put their bodies on the line for an extra weekend every year.

But, here we are.

After all, we know the NFL primarily cares about money, so are we really surprised?
