Bears wouldn't rule out bringing in RB Kareem Hunt

Monday, January 14, 2019, 6:46pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Chicago Bears left open the possibility of pursuing free agent running back Kareem Hunt, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 1 after video surfaced of Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in the hallway of his Cleveland residence.

Hunt is on the Commissioner Exempt List and would need to be reinstated before he could sign with any team.

Fantasy Impact:

HC Matt Nagy has a relationship with Hunt dating back to his days in Kansas City. The Bears will face a decision on Howard as he reaches the final year of his contract. The story added nothing is imminent in regard to bringing in Hunt, who is subject to discipline once a team does sign him.

Scouting Report

Wild Card Playoffs vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Jordan Howard finished the regular season with his best performance all year, rushing for 109 yards and two touchdowns. It was just his second 100-yard rushing game in 2018 and also the second time he finished with multiple touchdowns. Howard has had his ups and downs this year, but he finished the regular season averaging 88 yards in his last five games while scoring four times in that span.

He gets a somewhat tough matchup against the Eagles who, overall weren't great at stopping the run, but finished the year giving up just an average of 27 rushing yards to backs in the last three games. Howard should be fine, however, and should finish somewhere around 70-80 yards with a chance for a score.
