Kareem Hunt has requested a trade from the Browns after not receiving a contract extension
The upcoming 2022 NFL season has every player eager to establish himself as the best at his position, but the competition may be fierce. This is the situation with Kareem Hunt, who has reportedly grown disenchanted with the Cleveland Browns and has asked the team for trade just weeks before the start of the upcoming season. The decision involving Kareem Hunt and the Browns was one of the most divisive in recent years. Despite some off-field difficulties, Cleveland was optimistic they could get the running back on track and form one of the league’s top tandems with Nick Chubb.
However, it appears that Kareem Hunt dislikes the supporting position he will most likely play for Cleveland. It has been claimed that the former Kansas City Chiefs player has requested a trade in order to join another team as their starting running back. According to James Palmer of the NFL Network, just weeks before the start of the upcoming season, Kareem Hunt has asked the Cleveland Browns for a trade, but the team has informed him that there is no chance of this occurring.
Kareem Hunt stated in June that he hoped to retire in Cleveland, but it appears that his affection for the Browns has faded. Due to calf and ankle ailments, he was only able to play in eight games in 2021, so 2022 was expected to be his return season. Hunt might follow Deebo Samuel’s steps and transform the desire for a move into an extension. The running back for the Browns has one more season left on his deal, and if he does not reach an agreement, he will be a free agent in the summer of 2023.
