An American football running back who is currently a free agent is named as Kareem AJ Hunt. He is simply known as Kareem Hunt. He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL) in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. In November 2018, after video of a violent incident involving Hunt was released, he was placed on the commissioner's exempt list and released by the Chiefs. He is a very talented running back player. He was rated by Rivals.com as a three-star recruit and committed to the University of Toledo to play college football.

Why Kareem Hunt could return to NFL 'sooner than later,' with 'multiple' teams interested?

2017 NFL rushing champ was released by Chiefs last Nov. after video surfaced of him assaulting a woman. The Bears last week might have been the first team to publicly leave the door open regarding the possibility of signing ex-Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, but there are several expressing interest in adding the 2017 NFL rushing champion, who could have a job "sooner than later,". Since a Feb. 2018 video of Hunt pushing and shoving a young woman surfaced in mid-November, he has been undergoing anger-management courses, Schefter reports, and the progress he's making is increasing interest in his services. Hunt, 23, who was released by the Chiefs on Nov. 30 for lying to the team about his involvement in the video, remains on the Commissioner's Exempt list and still is subject to league discipline. He reportedly is being investigated by the league for three separate incidents, not just the one stemming from the incident in a Cleveland hotel that led to his release. A 37-year-old man alleges he was assaulted in a Kansas City nightclub last January by a group of men including Hunt and former Chiefs teammate George Atkinson.
