Kareem Hunt asks for a trade, but Cleveland refuses it


Running back Kareem Hunt of the Cleveland Browns has asked to be traded, according to Sunday morning’s NFL Network report. Palmer noted that the group has informed Hunt that the request would not be granted. The running back had missed many sessions prior to Hunt’s request for a trade, but on Sunday he returned to full participation. Hunt has one year left on his contract and has asked to be traded one month before the start of the regular season. He will soon receive a basic salary of $1.35 million and roster bonuses around $4.9 million. Due to calf and ankle ailments, Hunt only participated in eight games in 2021. He gained 386 yards on the ground for five touchdowns and added 22 receptions for 174 yards. Hunt, who teams up with Nick Chubb to form Cleveland’s deadly backfield combination, declared himself healthy prior to training camp. Back in June, he also stated that he wanted to conclude his career in Cleveland. Once the season is finished, they can still split ways if the team insists on this choice.
