Saints' Kamara says he was fined $6K for Christmas cleats

METAIRIE, La. - Alvin Kamara showed off his letter from "the Grinch" on Thursday - a fine from the National Football League for wearing his red, Christmas-themed cleats during last Sunday's 23-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Kamara says it was worth it and says he's hoping to parlay publicity from his banned holiday cleats into a fundraiser to help supply athletic footwear to children whose families struggle to afford it. "I mean, the Grinch stole Christmas".

Kamara's red cleats were topped by a think white lining reminiscent of the trim on a Santa Clause costume, along with bells.

Kamara, according to his Twitter account, received the fine letter from the National Football League on Thursday.

Kamara told reporters Thursday that he was fined $6,079, per ESPN, and that he planned to raise money to cover the fine and donate any surplus to charity.

"It's the Christmas spirit, man", running back Mark Ingram said alongside Kamara. Kamara even joked last Sunday he would start a GoFundMe campaign when the fine arrived.

"I'm going to make a GoFundMe - yeah, I'm getting fined - and whatever the fine is, I'm going to pay the fine and the rest I'm going to donate to a charity".
