Ex-NFL player predicts Chiefs ‘won’t recover’ from Kareem Hunt saga

Andy Reid

The Kansas City Chiefs are loaded with playmakers and should be able to find ways to score points without Kareem Hunt, but at least one former NFL player does not think it will be that simple.

With the Chiefs 9-2 and in prime position to earn the No. 1 seed in the AFC, one former NFL player texted ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Sunday to predict that the team is going to implode.

Hunt already had more than 1,200 yards from scrimmage and had scored 14 total touchdowns, so that type of production will be difficult to replace. However, the Chiefs have a viable backup in Spencer Ware, who has averaged 4.7 yards per carry for his career and always filled in admirably when Kansas City has dealt with injuries in the past.

The player who texted Schefter likely would not dispute that the Chiefs have the personnel to overcome the loss of Hunt, but a sudden change is never a good thing for a team that is humming along. Kansas City had no choice but to release Hunt after the way he allegedly kept the team in the dark about what really happened between him and the woman he assaulted in February. Now, the Chiefs will have to answer endless questions about Hunt in addition to being without one of their top difference-makers.
