NFL Team Cuts Star Running Back After Footage Of Attack On Woman

During a live interview with ESPN on Sunday, the NFL's reigning rushing champion also said that league officials never spoke to him about the incident while conducting their own investigation. Something he doesn't deserve.

In a statement, Hunt apologized for his actions, saying, "I deeply regret what I did. I know right from wrong".

Salters, who showed the importance of asking tough questions, asked the 23-year-old what happened on the night in question. Hunt has not been charged, NFL.com says.

No, it does matter.

Hunt then kicks the woman in the leg, the video shows.

As to the why he did what he did, apparently "some things were said". "And I'm extremely embarrassed because of that video". "I made a bad decision at that time and I just hope that people forgive me".

According to Sports Illustrated, the league tried to investigate the allegations after the Hunt incident in February, but the Cleveland hotel that had the video reportedly refused to give it to NFL investigators. Due to his release from the Chiefs roster he is now listed on the league waivers and if, as expected, he goes unclaimed by a team by the deadline on Monday he will then become an unrestricted free agent.

"The NFL's investigation began immediately following the incident in February", the statement said.

The Star has also been unsuccessful in attempts to contact the woman who was shoved and kicked by Hunt.

He also pointed out that the former Trump attorney has a history of secretly tape recording conversations. The government is also expected to file a sentencing memo. "For you, it's a future president Trump".

After its almost criminal handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence case, the NFL took steps to change the perception of its players and the league's attitude toward the abuse of women in 2017 with the hiring of Lanier - a highly-respected figure in law enforcement who just happened to be a woman. Police said they did not see the video until it was made public. "It's out there. It happened". Everything. I'm going to take the time to better myself and learn from this.

"They believed that I lied to them".

"The Chiefs are right, and I didn't tell them everything", he said. "I know it's going to be hard".

Hunt said he isn't sure that another National Football League team will give him a chance, though adding a 23-year-old standout could be worth the public backlash for a team in need of help.

Assuming Hunt is released on Monday, we will soon find out if another team is willing to overlook what is in that video and claim the running back.

But should he? Absolutely not. Teams continue to draft players who have a history of domestic violence - sometimes even players who have been seen on camera committing violence similar to Hunt and Rice.

Hunt explained how the conversation went with the Chiefs when they released him on Friday.

Salters: What didn't you tell the Chiefs back then? That was when the full gravity of his actions hit him, he said.
