He went skateboarding on a sunny day on his longboard, which was a gift from the MLS All-star game. Or...
He's planning a move to the Colorado Rapids.

Kamara earned $536,000 in 2015, but wants to renegotiate his contract for 2016. No movement has been reported.

This could all be nothing. This could be something. We might know by the end of the Super Bowl.
With the top spot in allocation and possible extra cash in TAM from all their wheeling and dealing, the Rapids may just be stealing one of the best players in MLS right after grabbing one of the best players in the Swiss League. If it happened, it'd be crazy.
