Kareem Hunt: It didn’t hurt more to lose to the Chiefs

Divisional Round - Cleveland Browns v Kansas City Chiefs

One of the most prominent storylines heading the Browns and Chiefs divisional-round matchup was Kareem Hunt‘s return to Kansas City.

Hunt called the matchup “personal,” as he’s familiar with many Chiefs players and coaches from his time with the franchise. But Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, and the rest of Kansas City’s personnel who spoke with the media last week simply wished Hunt well.

Hunt ended up with 32 yards rushing and a touchdown, and he also caught a pass for two yards in Cleveland’s 22-17 loss. And on Tuesday, Hunt said losing to his former team didn’t make matters worse.

“I love those guys. It don’t hurt more. That’s a good football team. Good people all around over there,” Hunt said, via Tom Withers of the Associated Press.

Hunt was one member of the Browns’ strong two-pronged rushing attack in 2020, finishing the regular season with 1,145 yards from scrimmage and 11 total touchdowns. Cleveland signed him to a two-year, $13.25 million contract extension in September keeping him tied to the franchise through 2022.

  1. I just wish he hadn’t decided to talk trash. He’d still be a Chief, I think, if he hadn’t lied to management about the whole thing. His actions during it were bad but he kind of got a raw deal, it was the lying that got him cut. He should own that part of it.

  2. If it was “personal” why wouldn’t hurt more Kareem? You made it that way, no one else. Once again, the fault lies (on a football), with Kareem. You’re a good football player but your sound bytes need work.

  3. But if he won this comment would do a 180. You weren’t a factor. You may not like it but they may cut you to extend Chubb. No room for two RBs.

  4. it gotta make you feel like you just ran into that hot GF from HS… and she is still hot and rich… but you stock shelves at Walmart.

  5. He sure showed the Chiefs……jackhole. I still think the Chiefs make it to the SB 2 yrs ago if he doesn’t get kicked off the team.

  6. Seems like a real jerk on the field. Him or Chubb will go down for many gms if they run that much next yr – it’s inevitable.

  7. glad he reminded us what he did to that poor girl with his Td celebration.. what does that mean anyway.. laying down and pretending to sleep?that is what you should have done instead of coming out and fighting with that girl.
