Kareem Hunt returns to team drills at Browns camp

Browns running back Kareem Hunt‘s “hold in” appears to be over.

Hunt was not participating in team drills during recent Browns practices at training camp, but multiple reporters at Sunday’s session send word that Hunt has been on the field for 11-on-11 work. Hunt was staying off the field because he wants a new contract before playing out the final year of his current deal.

Hunt also asked for a trade recently, but was told that the Browns would not consider making such a move. That and the team’s ability to fine him for withholding his services likely impacted the decision to reverse course when it came to team drills on Sunday.

Hunt is set to make a base salary of $1.35 million this year with roster bonuses that can push the total value of the deal to $3.4 million.

  1. He should report. And he should be more appreciative that he even has an NFL job making millions of dollars instead of the alternative, which we all know likely what that would be.

  2. Clearly he hasn’t sexually abused enough women to get a major new contract.

    To be the face of this franchise, he’s going to have to abuse at least double-digits’ worth. Only then do you get the bulk discount on punishment and the big guaranteed money.

    The Browns, ladies and gentlemen!

    Well, he did kick that woman in the head in the hallway of that hotel, so he has that going for him.

    Just because Goodell covered it up for KC, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

    It depends what team you play for, as you well know.

  4. Chiefs fan; He led the league one year. Andy let him go because he lied. He’s underpaid. He will get more money because he’s worth it.

  5. I wouldn’t say he’s necessarily worth it. Backs are honestly a dime a dozen. You overpay him and he can quickly turn into Zeke or Gurley in a heartbeat. The Browns helped him resurrect his career. If I were them I’d trade him for the highest pick or best player I could get in return. The Browns have a 3rd stringer who can do everything. No need to sit on this guy. Every back has so far been successful with Mahomes. Can’t put a lot of stock in what he did with KC. Remember Damien Williams looked like an All Pro with KC.

  6. He could’ve gotten 2 super bowl rings and a fat contract if the chiefs didn’t release him.

  7. He got horrible advice all the good will he created in Cleveland is this close to vanishing into thin air .
    Go to work keep your mouth shut collect your 6.5 million this year then next year you’ll be on another team that’s life .

  8. Forget his past issues, he is like most RB’s just another guy. He ranked near the bottom of the RB’s in the league & there were quite a few QB’s who had more yard than he did like Josh Allen & Justin Fields – lol. He’s lucky he’s getting paid what he is now.
