Kareem Hunt doesn’t yet know what his NFL future holds. The veteran running back is entering an interesting season in 2022, one that will pay him a base salary of just $1.35 million while hitting the Cleveland Browns salary cap for $6.25 million — thanks to a $4.9 million roster bonus — and it’s also the final year of his existing contract with the team. This means both he and the Browns have a decision to make about his future, and it appears he’s already made his.
Hunt has reportedly informed the Browns he wants an extension to remain with his hometown team, per Cleveland.com, but the Toledo native is still waiting to see what comes of that ask.
“Right now I’m just taking it day by day, man,” Hunt said at minicamp. “I’m going to see what they want to do with me and I’m just taking it day by day. Hopefully I can be here longterm. We’ll see what God has in plan for me, that’s all I can say.”
“I was born and raised here,” Hunt added. “I’d love to finish my career here and just keep playing the game with (Nick) Chubb longer and with the great guys on this great team.”
