Recently, it has been reported that the Cleveland Browns were not interested in bringing running back Kareem Hunt back to the team after serving as Nick Chubb’s backup for the past four seasons. They believe that he is beginning to be past his prime and has lost a step.
Concerns about speed can be a death sentence to a running back. Especially with the running back market being as flooded as it is today. Some have speculated that Hunt would be lucky to receive a one-year $4 million deal.
In recent years, he has struggled through some injuries, however, he was able to make it through a full season last year for the first time since 2020. Although his production has slipped a bit, this can be chalked up to Nick Chubb being healthy through the entirety of the season, and Hunt being underused in Cleveland’s offense.
While the concerns about his speed may hold some merit, he can serve as a power back and has made major adjustments to his game to improve as a receiving back. While he will likely never get the chance to be a starting running back again, there will be a team that comes around to sign him to be a very valuable backup.
He likely will not find any suitors before the draft, however, if any contending team strikes out on finding a back they like in the draft, it would not be a stretch to believe they would take a chance on Hunt.
