The NFL Still Only Cares About Violence Against Women When There's Video

In the grainy, graphic video, Hunt is seen getting into an argument with a woman and several men step in to hold him back.

It was a pretty mature response from Mahomes, especially given him and Hunt are both 23-years-old and were part of the same Chiefs draft class. Mahomes clearly understands the severity of Hunt's actions and is aware that they have no place on a football team. I am not blaming anyone who was with him, but I wish someone that was with him, if he's not in his right mind ... would've said to him, 'Look at the situation. "They've always taught me well and I know right from wrong. I was in the wrong, I could have took responsibility and made the right decision to find a way to deescalate the whole situation", Hunt said.

"I saw the stuff that happened", Mahomes said.

On Friday, the Kansas City Chiefs announced they were cutting Hunt after video of the assault was published by TMZ. Still, Hunt said he only faulted himself.

When ESPN asked Hunt whether the National Football League spoke directly to him about it, he replied: "No, they have not", in which ESPN confirmed was the truth.

"They believed that I lied to them". "The video shows it". Ware, who led the Chiefs in rushing in 2016, only to lose the starting job to Hunt last season because of a season-ending knee injury in the preseason, rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders.

The incident occurred about 3:45 a.m. on February 10, after Hunt invited friends over to his new apartment, and one of them apparently brought along Ottinger as a guest.

"Just a disagreement", he said. "I just want to apologize to everybody, the Chiefs organization, my family and close friends".

While he won't play the rest of this season, Hunt could be back in the NFL as soon as next year - unless enough people make it clear they will no longer support the league with their cash if it continues to give players like Hunt multiple chances. 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. "And I know that's where I masked a lot of my problems". "The NFL's ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident". The NFL delivered a swift statement on the matter claiming their investigation was, "consistent with standard investigatory practices..."
