A day after Drew Brees set the NFL passing record, the Saints are getting attention of a totally different kind.

Running back Alvin Kamara is making headlines and going viral on social media for his post game attire.

The second year player put on a Colin Kaepernick jersey and a hat with the slogan, "Make Africa Home Again."

The hat appeared to be mocking those worn by President Donald Trump's supporters with the slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Kaepernick is currently out of the league after leading the campaign to take a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

It appears Kamara was using the Monday Night Football post game coverage to communicate his support for Kaepernick.

Reporters did not ask the running back about his attire during interviews after the game at the Superdome.
