Kareem Hunt: I’m ready to get out there and do whatever Browns ask

Nick Chubb ran for almost 1,500 yards last season, so the Browns didn’t have much need to feed the ball to Kareem Hunt once he returned from the eight-game suspension that kicked off his first year in Cleveland.

Hunt ran 43 times and caught 37 passes in his eight games with the team, which is well off the kind of workload he had in Kansas City before the Chiefs released him during the 2018 season in the wake of the release of a video that showed him shoving and kicking a woman.

The new role has led to less attention, which Hunt says is fine with him because he’s happy to bide his time and “make the most of my opportunities.”

“Anytime I can get on that field and make something happen, between running the football and blocking, I’m gonna give it 110 every time,” Hunt said, via the team’s website. “I’m ready to get out there and do whatever they ask.”

Hunt’s 37 catches were more than Chubb managed while playing twice as many games, so the passing game would seem to be a clear area of focus. Head coach Kevin Stefanski has put in a new offense, however, so Hunt’s role may not be exactly the same as it was in 2019.

  1. Cleveland really might have the best RB duo in the league, in my opinion. Hunt was a top RB before his incident, but I’m not sure if he has lost anything.

    His dignity….if he ever had any to begin with.

  3. Mayfield certainly has no excuses if he doens’t put it all together this year. He has maybe the best running back duo in the league, one of the top receiver duos in the league, one of the top TE duos and the signing of Conklin and drafting of Wills shores up the O line which was the weak spot last year. On paper anyway they have as much talent as anyone.

  4. He’d have still been a Chief had he not lied to Clark Hunt about the incident. I am not saying that was an unforgivable offense, but the Chiefs were left with little recourse than to release him. I hope he’s completely rehabilitated and stays out of trouble.

  5. Mack and Byner, been waiting 35yrs to see 2 running back tandom both go over 1000yds!!! Go Browns 2020!!! šŸ˜šŸ˜šŸ˜
