Kareem Hunt wants to sign extension with Browns
Kareem Hunt’s stay with the Browns has been a brief one thus far, but he would like to stick around in Cleveland for the long run.
Speaking with reporters on Monday, the Browns running back said that there was “no question” he would like to sign an extension with the team, per Scott Petrak of The Chronicle-Telegram.
“I would not mind playing for Browns for [a] long time,” Hunt added.
The 24-year-old ex-Pro Bowler logged 464 yards from scrimmage and three total touchdowns in eight games for the Browns last year. He was suspended for the other eight games as a result of the 2018 incident where he assaulted a woman at a hotel, leading to his release from the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hunt signed his one-year, $3.3 million restricted tender from the Browns this offseason and will be a free agent after the 2020 season as it currently stands. Reasons to be skeptical about Hunt still exist, but he could play himself into a favorable new deal with a strong performance next season.
