Are the Bears and Former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt a Match?

On Monday,coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace left open the possibility the Bears could sign running back Kareem Hunt, who was released by the Chiefs on Nov. 30 after video showed him pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel last year, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

While nothing is pending — “We’re not even close to that point,” Pace said — neither the coach nor the GM ruled out a signing when asked a total of six questions about Hunt.

Nagy said he spoke with Hunt, who played for him last year with the Chiefs, last week on the phone.

“We had a good conversation,” Nagy said. “Here’s a kid that I spent a year coaching on offense. It’s a tough situation. I wanted to make sure that he’s OK but understanding, too, that the situation that happened is unfortunate for everybody. He knows that.”

“So the only thing I cared about when I talked to him was literally his personal life, and it was a good conversation. He sounded good. That’s it.”

    I simply wonder WHY a pro sports athlete should be banned from making a living? I haven’t seen the video and don’t need to. Reading what Hunt did was enough for me to see that some severe form of punishment is necessary. But BANNING??? This is a load of garbage that is the direct result of political correctness and the ‘Me-too’ b.s. Enough already. If no one wants to sign him for whatever reason – that’s fine. Any other reason is wrong.
