Odd habit you’ve got there, checking to see if NFL coaches are also priests. Have you found any yet?

 

Does Frank Reich count?  He was a pastor.

Chiefs should trade for this guy, imagine how good they could be with a RB like Hunt. 

Is the bold prediction Hunt going to San Diego or San Diego having a team again?

I wonder if the saints cant afford Ingram, will they grab Hunt? 

 

Crazy i know but one could ponder

 

Hunts gonna have enough options where he can be the man that I can’t see him joining a team where at best he’s in a timeshare.

I’m not sure I agree. Most teams employ a timeshare of sorts. On top of that, since he will be serving a lengthy suspension, whatever team signs him will need to have a relatively capable RB in place to start the season. I don’t see any team immediately benching the current starter the second Hunt is eligible to play. Suppose the current starter is playing well? Hunt will likely need to work his way into a timeshare for a while until he proves he deserves to be “the man” on his new team. And it’s no guarantee that he’ll be as effective on his new team. KC was a dream situation, virtually any other team is a situation downgrade for Hunt.

 

Any team that signs Hunt can’t fully trust him, so the’ll need to retain at least one other quality backfield option in case another incident arises and he gets suspended again. No team would risk completely handing over the keys to their backfield to a guy with three separate  incidents under investigation. 

 

He’ll probably end up in Chicago as part of a 3 way commitmee with Howard and Cohen. If Hunt stays out of trouble, Howard leaves Chicago in 2020.

While most will concede that Toledo, then KC were very favorable situations, some see Hunt's production more attributable to him being a very talented player. Low center with some of the skills of a workload 'back. Could be that his career enters a different chapter, more of a how-much-do-I-want-it phase. He's more of a bruiser, there's nothing special about his speed, suddenness or change of direction. As we know, the Chiefs got rid of him w/o hesitation & didn't miss him at all. Damien Williams quickly became the lead 'back & fantasy asset Hunt had been. As your comment suggests, it's reasonable to consider whether Hunt is or can be more than just a cog.

Same can be said about Leveon bell

I have a hard time understanding what they plan to do here. They have two very good RBs, but not in the Ingram-Kamara mode. These are both legit lead dogs. 

 

Its why the Browns are the Browns
