There might be another Kareem Hunt video out there.
The NFL is investigating an incident in which the now former Chiefs star running back allegedly punched a man in the face at a resort in Ohio, according to NFL Network. According to the report, the league has found enough evidence from the June episode to bolster an incoming suspension.
The baseline suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy — as Hunt did in video obtained by TMZ on Friday that showed him shoving and kicking a woman in February — is six games. But with another incident possibly on the ledger — a fight that would have taken place when the NFL already was investigating the February incident — more games would be tacked on.
What complicates a suspension further is Hunt is not on an NFL team. The Chiefs cut him in the wake of the video, stating Hunt had lied to the team about the events that transpired, and Hunt has been placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List. After being released by a 9-2 team with five games to go this season, Hunt stands to miss at least a chunk of 2019, too (provided a team gives him a chance that was denied Ray Rice).
“I hope so,” Hunt told ESPN on Sunday about the possibility of another team signing him. “I’ve worked for this my whole entire life. I’ve gave everything and sacrificed so much for this. … If I get another shot at this, the team won’t regret it.”
