Kareem Hunt: It was for me just to play with the Browns again

Kareem Hunt’s time in Cleveland didn’t end the way either side wanted, but surprisingly, the running back gets a second chance. The one-time NFL rushing champion re-signed with the Browns after eight months, when he felt he had played his last game for the team.

“I never closed the door completely Or whatnot, but I didn’t think it was a big possibility,” Hunt said, via Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan. “So things work out for some reason under the circumstances, so I think it was just for me to play for the hometown thing again.”

During training camp in 2022, Hunt briefly sat out team practice as he asked for an extension that never came. Then, during free agency, a report surfaced that the Browns were not interested in re-signing Hunt because they believed his velocity was slowing down.

Hunt said no fences needed repair.

“We’re in this together,” Hunt said. “I have a lot of respect for everyone in this building, and it never had it to that point. So it was good to meet everybody, talk about expectations and things I can do to help and just help this team win. I’m willing to come in and do anything to help us win. My biggest thing is to help win a Super Bowl.”

He will be the backup to Jerome Ford this season after backing up Nick Chubb last season.

Chubb’s horrific, season-ending left knee injury on Monday night is the reason for Hunt’s return.

“That hurt,” Hunt said. “Seeing that. I saw it live, and I would hate to see that happen to a brother of mine and a boy that I care about so much and go to war at any time of the day. I think, these circumstances “God had a plan to help me get back here.”
