Kareem Hunt Victim Goes Silent After Demanding Charges

Adjust Comment Print

Due to his release from the Chiefs roster he is now listed on the league waivers and if, as expected, he goes unclaimed by a team by the deadline on Monday he will then become an unrestricted free agent.

The most memorable incident came in 2014, when a video showed former Ravens running back Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an elevator in an Atlantic City hotel.

As they got closer, a male who appeared to be friends with Hunt tried to separate them before Hunt violently shoved the woman away.

Hunt was preparing to play Oakland this week when TMZ Sports posted the grainy, graphic security video Friday.

Hunt said the National Football League never questioned him about the incident or asked him to talk about it.

"I regret not getting it all out there", Hunt said, asked what he regretted about the situation. This season, he has run for 824 yards and seven TDs in 11 games and has seven touchdowns receiving for a team that is 9-2 and barrelling toward the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. Despite that move by the league, any team is free to claim Hunt on waivers before 4 p.m. on Monday.

The Chiefs' backup was the unquestioned starter heading into last season, even after the team made Hunt their third-round pick.

While the particular terms of Hunt's punishment remain unclear, it is nearly certain that he will not play again this season.

The Chiefs are also confident in backups Damien Williams and Darrel Williams. That isn't condoning Hunt's actions, it is just you have to speak on the severity of the incidents.

No. 1 Alabama will play No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl
No. 2 Clemson is headed back to the Lone Star State for a second time this season and a first trip to the Cotton Bowl since 1940. SEC champion Alabama, ACC champion Clemson, Notre Dame and Oklahoma were picked Sunday as the four teams that made the cut.

Chelsea vs Fulham, Premier League
Chelsea reportedly face a battle to convince youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to pen a new contract at Stamford Bridge. He's really very able to do this. "But I want to see him in a match when he has to play in a defensive phase".

So that is what's next for the Chiefs.

'As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him.

"I realized what I did once I saw the video, and it was really tough to watch", he said.

The NFL made multiple attempts to obtain it, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. Police declined to provide the video.

Hunt apologized to the woman in the video, the Chiefs organization and his family. Cleveland Police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia told Cleveland.com in February that since it was a cross complaint, no charges would be filed unless one of the two (Hunt or the woman) went to the prosecutor's office and asked to have charges pursued.

In its grainy and graphic footage, the video brought a new dimension to developments, showing that what Hunt had told the Chiefs was not the case. But, the Chiefs said, "Kareem was not truthful in those discussions".

Hunt now is on the commissioner's exempt list. On Nov. 24, Reuben Foster of the San Francisco 49ers was arrested and charged with first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence - his second arrest this year on domestic violence charges. In the early morning hours of June 3, Hunt got into an verbal altercation with another guest that allegedly ended with Hunt punching the man in the face.

It is not looking good for Hunt to return to the field anytime soon.

If it ever happens.
