Cleveland Browns’ running back Kareem Hunt has made it known plenty of times that he wants to get a contract extension from the franchise but the inability to get his wish has made him pull off a drastic measure. The 27-year-old has not participated in team drills for the last couple of days.

According to CBSsports, Hunt has made his teammates aware of the situation and the fact that he might not join the team for further training sessions from here on, if he does not receive an extension. The franchise, on the other hand, have learnt that his absence is not health related and he would be subjected to fines.

The contract Kareem Hunt signed in 2020 pays him a base salary of $1.35 million in 2022, with a $1.5 million roster bonus and per-game roster bonus of $200,000 each. He joined the franchise back in 2017 from the Kansas City Chiefs after an incident which led to an eight-game suspension for violating the Personal Conduct Policy in 2019.

Right now I’m just taking it day by day, man,” Kareem Hunt said at minicamp in June. “I’m going to see what they want to do with me and I’m just taking it day by day. Hopefully I can be here longterm. We’ll see what God has in plan for me, that’s all I can say.”

It remains to be seen whether the Cleveland Browns give into his demand and offers him a new contract ahead of the 2022 NFL season which starts in a month’s time.
