Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was one of the most electrifying players in all of football but that was before he was released for an off the field issue. Browns GM John Dorsey had a relationship with Hunt because they both spent time together with the Chiefs and that was a big reason the 23 year old running back decided to sign with Cleveland.
Even though Hunt will have to serve an eight week suspension before he gets to suit up it’s already clear what he can bring to this offense. At OTAs Hunt stood out and looked like one of the best athletes participating in those practices. Whether it was flying through drill work, catching the football, or blowing by defenders with his burst it’s obvious Hunt hasn’t lost a step. Nick Chubb will have to carry the load out of the gate but eventually the Browns could have the best running back tandem in the league. It’s even possible Chubb ends up losing his job to Kareem Hunt because it’s going to be hard to keep this guy on the sidelines. At the end of the day the NFL is about competition and the best players have to be in the starting lineup. With all that’s at stake for Cleveland Hunt’s skill set may be needed during a late season playoff push. We know this team will be very close to making the postseason with all of the playmakers they have. By establishing a proper rushing attack those goals will be much more achievable and it’s going to help this group take control of games. So many other things will fall into place from there and Hunt is a punishing ball carrier that can wear teams down. We’re talking about highlight reel football and that’s going to make this franchise a big draw once week one arrives.
