It sounds like Kareem Hunt won’t be out of the NFL much longer.
From @GMFB Weekend earlier this morning: More on what the future holds for former #Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (https://t.co/q3j9IJhKRW), who has had several teams keeping tabs on him over the last few weeks. pic.twitter.com/9VnYRgnDSL

This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody that’s been paying attention over the past couple months since Hunt found himself on the unemployment line.
The TMZ video of Hunt appearing to get physical with a young woman is really bad, but it likely won’t keep him out of the league forever. (RELATED: Will A Team Sign NFL Player Cut After Alleged Violence Against A Woman? Here’s What Executives Are Saying)
As Rapoport pointed out below, the Bears sound like they’re really following any developments with Hunt. As I’ve said before, I think there’s a high chance Hunt makes a return to the NFL.
There will be a massive PR campaign to soften up his image, and then he’ll get another chance if he stays out of trouble.

The NFL is a business and it’s about winning games. As long as Hunt can help a team win football games, then he’ll almost certainly get another shot.
People might not be happy, but that’s the reality of the situation.
