Infamous draft bust Ryan Leaf thinks Kareem Hunt shouldn’t get entirely shutout of the NFL.

Hunt was cut from the Kansas City Chiefs after a video was recently released that appeared to show him getting physical with a woman back in February. Most people seem to think his odds of playing again are pretty slim. (RELATED: Will A Team Sign NFL Player Cut After Alleged Violence Against A Woman? Here’s What Executives Are Saying)

“I mean this country is all about second chances,” Leaf told TMZ in a video posted Monday morning.

I understand Leaf’s sentiments here, and I do agree that America is indeed a country of second chances. However, as I’ve already noted, don’t hold your breath anticipating a team to sign him. NFL executives and Roger Goodell don’t want Hunt on the field and commentators talking about the allegations and video every time a camera shows him.

Also, Leaf references himself as an example of a second chance, but it’s not a great comparison. Leaf never came back to play in the NFL after flaming out in a few years.

Hunt made some poor decisions, and now he’s paying the price. It’s really that simple. I’ll be absolutely shocked if you see him on a roster anytime soon. That’s just the reality of the situation.
