The NFL is reviewing three separate off-field incidents reportedly involving Hunt, as the league works towards determining potential discipline for the running back, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
The report suggests the likely outcome is a multi-game suspension that would stretch into next season. After being released by the Chiefs on Friday, Hunt is a free agent, though as long as he remains on the commissioner's exempt list, he is prohibited from participating in practices or games.
After being released by the Chiefs on Friday, Hunt went unclaimed on waivers Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Although he's officially a free agent, Hunt would not be able to practice or play due to his residence on the Exempt/Commissioner list.
The Chiefs released Hunt on Friday.
The team issued a statement following the release of a video in which Hunt appears to be pushing a woman: "Earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving [Hunt.] At that time, the National Football League and law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue. As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. The video released today confirms that fact. We are releasing Kareem immediately."
The Chiefs will release Hunt, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The move comes hours after a video was released that appeared to show Hunt pushing a woman. He was subsequently placed on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List, but not long afterward, the Chiefs elected to part ways with the running back.
Hunt was placed on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The move comes in response to the release Friday of a video featuring a February incident that appears to show Hunt kicking and shoving a woman. Hunt will be ineligible to play in any games -- including Sunday's contest against the Raiders -- or take part in practice while on the list. According to Lindsay Jones of The Athletic, the NFL opened an investigation in February and will now review the video.
