Infamous NFL Draft Bust Weighs In On Kareem Hunt’s Comeback Chances
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.
