Playing in the last year of his current deal, Kareem Hunt reportedly demanded a new contract or a trade. Hunt just turned 27 years old on the same day he made the demand and is entering his sixth NFL season and fourth in Cleveland.

The demand shouldn’t come with too much surprise. Hunt has been a solid addition to Cleveland’s team since arriving in 2019 and was a standout in Kansas City during his first two seasons in the league.
Now, the Cleveland-native is looking for his next move. Being partnered with Chubb in Cleveland’s backfield has allowed Hunt to have fewer miles on him than most backs of his caliber and age. However, that’s also held Hunt back from being able to fully cash in on his abilities.
