It appears the consensus from those who know Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt is that a career revival is on the horizon. The Kansas City Chiefs parted ways with Hunt after a video came to light of the 23-year-old kicking a woman. The scene led to an NFL suspension and was obviously concerning.
While Hunt attempts to move on and has addressed the situation on a few occasions, it appears his new quarterback is attempting to get some opinions about the running back. And as Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Rep revealed, Mayfield spoke to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, who both spoke highly of Hunt.
TMZ Sports also revealed a longer quote from Mayfield on his new teammate as well, calling it “important” for Hunt to be in Cleveland.
“They speak very highly of him,” Mayfield said … “So, I think that’s really important, and it’s been pretty important for him to be here too.”
It’s not surprising to hear this from Mahomes and Kelce, as there was never any on or off-field issue between the teammates when Hunt was with the Chiefs.
