Browns RB Kareem Hunt requested a trade from the team but was told no by Cleveland.
Hunt is entering the final year of his contract and has been looking for a new deal. Hunt is set to make over $6 million this season between his base salary and roster bonus. Hunt has been sitting out drills. Hunt is coming off a season in which he missed nine games due to injuries and Covid-19. As a result, D’Ernest Johnson broke out and became a very solid RB2 behind Nick Chubb. Hunt is currently just inside the top 100 of Underdog ADP and the No. 31 RB. But his absence has meant more opportunities for Johnson. It’s shaping up to be a true committee behind Chubb.
