It appears as though Kareem Hunt’s time on the open market won’t be lasting much longer.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the free agent running back is drawing interest from multiple teams, and one of them is expected to sign him “sooner rather than later.”
This is no surprise, really. While Hunt may be facing a suspension from the league for his infamous attack video, he’s an extremely talented, young superstar who wasn’t charged in the incident. He has also been responding well to his anger-management counseling, according to sources.
That apparently has several NFL teams interested in his services. Among them are the Chicago Bears, who openly expressed their interest in Hunt during a press conference last week.
Of course, Matt Nagy was the offensive coordinator with the Chiefs when they drafted Hunt in 2017. So the Bears make perfect sense as a possible landing spot for the 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year. But so do a ton of other teams around the league.
