National Football League issues statement on investigation of former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt

Former NFL running back Kareem Hunt has asked for forgiveness following the release of a video that shows him physically assaulting a woman in February.

Hunt spoke in a live interview that ESPN's Lisa Salters said he requested and told her, "I just want to let the world know how sorry I am". At the same time I'm focused on our organization, the Chiefs.

"I lied to them".

Hunt has since acknowledged he misled the Chiefs about the assault. "They pretty much said we love you, everybody cares about you, and just we have to let you go". It was a tough conversation. And the Chiefs did what was right. "I could have took responsibility and made the right decision to find a way to de-escalate the whole situation".

Hunt was placed on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List before being put on waivers. Hunt is shown being restrained several times by friends before pushing a woman to the ground, when he proceeds to kick her. Police were called to the scene during the February 10 incident, no charges were filed and no punishment was handed out by the NFL. He pushed one of the men and then knocked the woman to the ground and kicked her while she was down.

Meanwhile, Ray Rice - the former Baltimore Ravens running back who was released by the team when a video showed him punching and knocking out his now-wife, Janay, in an Atlantic City elevator - said he hopes to help Hunt deal with his problems. ESPN reported Sunday morning that the league did not interview Hunt or the woman involved during its investigation. "First, I would look at the situation and say, 'How did I even get in that moment, because whatever what was done in that moment, something transpired before it even got there".

"That's not an excuse", he said. I'm not that type of person.

He said he has not been interviewed by National Football League officials about the incident.

The league hired more staff to conduct such investigations, and announced it would take a more active role in handling similar cases in the future. The team said it had been made aware of the incident earlier in the year and management had spoken with Hunt, but the video made clear he was "not truthful in those discussions". The NFL then contacted Cleveland police, but the department said Saturday it did not pursue the video because it was not a felony-level case.
