According to an ESPN NFL source, Kareem Hunt will be picked up by a team sooner rather than later. Multiple teams has expressed interest in Hunt, but one team seems to be at the head of all discussions, the Chicago Bears. I am not sure why they would put themselves through the obvious backlash that would come along with this. Maybe they just want some publicity. After all, all press is good press, right?
The last semi-scandalous thing that happened to the Bears was when they drafted Mitch Trubisky. Of course, people looked through his tweets to try to ruin his life, as people do. All they found was that he looooooves to kiss titties. Don’t we all.
Anyways, back to Hunt.
Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy has had a significant relationship with Kareem Hunt since his rookie season when Nagy was his OC in Kansas City. They have remained in touch since the infamous Cleveland Hotel video came out through Hunt’s daily counseling. Even though they will certainly get negative attention for it, Nagy has not ruled out picking up Hunt for next season.
I get it, Kareem Hunt is a very good player, but why do the Bears NEED him? They already have Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard who are good enough. But, after all… we all deserve a second chance. A one time mistake during his rookie season shouldn’t ruin his entire life. So, if one team is brave enough to take him, I say, let them.
