Browns' Asking Price for Kareem Hunt Trade Revealed

Browns' Asking Price for Kareem Hunt Trade Revealed


With NFL trade rumors heating up ahead of the Nov. 1 deadline, one player who's drawing a lot of interest from teams is Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt. Given Nick Chubb's dominance in Cleveland's backfield as well as the team's poor start, Hunt is expendable and could find himself on another team shortly.

What would it take to land the former Pro Bowler? NFL teams seem to have an idea.

Kareem Hunt Trade Rumors

Apparently, NFL teams believe Hunt can be had for a fourth-round draft pick. That seems somewhat light given Hunt's track record and reputation (especially compared to the haul Carolina just got for Christian McCaffrey), but he's more of a complementary running back at this stage of his career rather than an every-down back. Hunt has had trouble staying on the field as well, as he's only played two full seasons since debuting in 2017.

It also doesn't help Hunt's trade value that his performance is down this season. His 4.0 yards per carry and 12.4 receiving yards per game are both the lowest of his career, indicating that he's fallen off as both a rusher and a pass-catcher.

Regardless, Hunt is still only 27 and could add value to another team, especially one with a traditional gap runner. He remains a potent offensive weapon when used correctly, and it sounds like he won't cost too much to acquire.
