Would trading Kareem Hunt be smart for the Browns? 

Author: Jon Kuzma


Here’s the thing about the Browns backfield. They’re just so deep at the running back position. Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt, and D’Ernest Johnson all of those guys can play. But it will be tough to keep everybody. And teams these days are reluctant to pay running backs. Let alone the backup running back. I could see the Browns trading Hunt, saving some money, and letting Johnson take over the backup role. Nick Chubb will get most of the reps anyway. That’s the way it should be. Then the Browns would still have Johnson if Chubb gets banged up. Look in the NFL tough decisions have to be made. Plus this team just sank a lot of money into Deshaun Watson’s contract. So Hunt might be on the trade block. It’s about thinking long term for the Browns.
