The incident took place in February of 2018, as he was seen shoving a woman to the ground and then kicking her while getting held back. The same day that this video was released by TMZ, the Chiefs released him, as he was their top running back at the time. He did not play the rest of the season, and went on to apologize during an ESPN interview a littler over a week later.
The Chiefs cut him on November 30th, as there were other incidents involved with Hunt, three to be exact, including the third one in Kansas City. He will not receive any discipline for those incidents, as there were no charges connected to any of them.
This suspension will force Hunt to forfeit $303,529 of his $645,000 base salary, but he will have a chance to earn $200,000 per game in bonuses once he returns to the field. Hunt will be a restricted free agent after this season, but may want to stick around for a Browns team that has used this off-season to rejuvenate their roster. Most notably, with the addition of Odell Beckham Jr. in a trade with the New York Giants earlier this week. The running back can participate in OTAs with the team, and they do expect him to be there for the start of off-season workouts on April 1st.
