Kareem Hunt situation a bad look for NFL

Kareem Hunt situation a bad look for NFL

Running back Kareem Hunt acknowledged that he misled the Kansas City Chiefs about his role in a February assault in a Cleveland hotel that ultimately led to his release this week.

TMZ published a video depicting Hunt and the woman exchanging words in a hallway before being separated on numerous instances.

While he won't play the rest of this season, Hunt could be back in the NFL as soon as next year - unless enough people make it clear they will no longer support the league with their cash if it continues to give players like Hunt multiple chances.

Hunt has been part of an ongoing investigation by the NFL since it became aware of the situation in February, the league confirmed in a statement.

"The Chiefs Kingdom, we're gonna come together, Justin Alvarez, River Bluff Brewery, said". "They pretty much said we love you, everybody cares about you, and just we have to let you go".

"Peer-to-peer, I would definitely try to help him figure out, 'How can we start dealing with the underlying problems in your life?'" Rice said.

Patrick Mahomes is just trying to focus on this season and avoid any outside distractions as the Chiefs look to compete for a Super Bowl. "I didn't tell them everything", Hunt said. "I'm extremely embarrassed because of that video".

Which NFL Teams Always Play on Thanksgiving?
Washington is 6-4 and leads the NFC East but travels to Dallas without Alex Smith, who suffered a season-ending injury on Sunday. However, Daniel spent several years working with Nagy when he was the quarterbacks coach with the Kansas City Chiefs.


"I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions".

When the incident first occurred, several members of the Chief's management team interviewed Hunt about the allegations. Police said they did not see the video until it was made public. Hunt shoves the woman who then hits him during an argument.

"I don't really know the woman at all and I don't know how to even get in contact with her". That incident led to a lengthy legal saga, and it culminated in an investigation by Robert Mueller into the NFL's mishandling of it. "The NFL's ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident".

He's not the only National Football League player to have been involved in domestic violence issues, though, as this cartoon shows.

Just two days after the 49ers fired Foster, the Washington Redskins claimed the player off waivers.

Many compare the video footage to that of former Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was also captured on video punching his then-fiancée in an elevator.
