Kareem Hunt news: Bears WR would welcome RB ‘with open arms’

The NFL has yet to discipline former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, but there’s little doubt he’ll face at least a six-game suspension.

Caught on video shoving a woman and then kicking her while she was on the ground, Hunt is currently being investigated for three separate incidents in which he’s been accused of assault.

Despite all that, there remains a strong level of interest in the running back, who will reportedly be signed “sooner rather than later” this offseason.

One of those teams might be the Chicago Bears, especially if other players and the team’s brass shares the opinion of receiver Allen Robinson.

“From when I met [him] and everything like that, for us to bring him into our locker room, I think guys would welcome him with open arms,” Robinson said, per Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. “He’d be one of us … A guy they’d bring into our locker room would be our brother.”

Additionally, Robinson referred to Hunt as a “good dude” from his own experiences interacting with him.

Head coach Matt Nagy, who was the offensive coordinator during Hunt’s rookie season, recently divulged he’s reached out to Hunt to check in on his former player. So, there is a strong relationship there that could potentially lead to a reunion.
