A little less than 12 hours later, he got a response from Andy Reid.
When asked about his former starting running back’s comments, the veteran coach took a different personal approach.
“Listen, I like Kareem [Hunt],” Reid told reporters during his press conference on Monday, via Sports Radio 810. “I’m glad things are going well for him. I know he felt bad about not being on the team last year, I’m happy for him. Things are going in the right direction for him. He’s on a good football team, great coaching staff. They won their first playoff game, there’s something to be said about that.”
Hunt was released by the Chiefs in 2018 after video surfaced of him assaulting a woman. Cleveland took a chance on Hunt in February 2019 and has since re-signed the Pro Bowler to a two-year, $13.25 million contract extension.
Hunt was crucial during the Wild Card game as he carried the ball eight times for 48 yards and two touchdowns.
