Report: Kareem Hunt Pleaded With Chiefs to Reconsider Releasing Him

The situation surrounding former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt isn’t going to get better anytime soon. Following the release of a video which showed the 23-year-old both push and then later kick a woman in a Cleveland hotel, Hunt’s fate with his team was all but sealed. He was released shortly after the video came to light and the details on the situation have been few and far between since.

But in a recent story from The Athletic’s Nate Taylor, some aspects of the reported story behind Hunt’s release did come out. As Taylor revealed, the team first sent the running back home after the video came out. Then hours later, he was called back for the conversation which resulted in his release from the team.

Per Taylor, Hunt cried to the coaching staff and front office members, pleading with them to reconsider the decision.

“Hunt cried in front of his coaches and members of the front office, according to multiple league sources with knowledge of the situation. With trembling emotion in his voice, Hunt apologized for his mistake and pleaded to the Chiefs to reconsider their decision.”
