Kareem Hunt situation a bad look for NFL

The "stuff" Mahomes referred to surfaced in a video last week of an incident involving Hunt and a woman outside of his Cleveland residence in February. The video shows Hunt arguing with a woman, which escalates and several men try to intervene and hold him back.

"That's not me. That's not the person I am", he told ESPN. I was raised by my mama and grandma and it was just us and they've always taught me well and right from wrong. "I could have taken responsibility and made the right decision to find a way to de-escalate the whole situation", Hunt said.

"Honestly I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions, " Hunt said.

That changed soon after the video was posted, with the league placing Hunt on the Commissioner Exemption List and then the Chiefs releasing Hunt shortly after that. "First, I would look at the situation and say, 'How did I even get in that moment, because whatever what was done in that moment, something transpired before it even got there". He later pushes one of the men, knocking down a woman that Hunt admitted he did not know, and eventually kicks her while she lays on the ground.

In the ESPN interview, Hunt confirmed that he was not honest with the Chiefs about the incident. "The video shows that I was in the wrong". For me, I just see you have a long life to live and that doesn't mean just playing football - you need to just live one day at a time. Ware, who led the Chiefs in rushing in 2016, only to lose the starting job to Hunt last season because of a season-ending knee injury in the preseason, rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders.

"I lied to them".

"No they have not", Hunt claimed.

"Those kinds of things are never easy, " Reid said, adding that he wanted to avoid "a distraction" on the team.

McCann returns to Braves on one-year deal
General manager Alex Anthopoulos attended the news conference for McCann but did not comment on the signing of Donaldson. Donaldson, meanwhile, gets a nice chunk of change and a chance to do it again, this time on a legitimate contender.

"I don't really know the woman at all and I don't know how to even get in contact with her".

"The NFL continues to pursue a complete understanding of the facts", the league said in a new statement released following Hunts' ESPN interview sunday.

"Consistent with investigatory practices, the National Football League continues to pursue a complete understanding of the facts", it said, adding that the investigation will include "further conversations with all parties involved in the incident". "These are non-investigations. It goes back to willful ignorance, and arrogance and hubris on the part of the NFL".
