Surprising news came out of Cleveland Browns' training camp over the weekend. Pro Bowl running back Kareem Hunt has reportedly requested a trade. 

Hunt is in the final year of his current contract with the Browns. He was previously holding in at practice, hoping for an extension. However, it doesn't appear the Browns are willing to commit. 

Per a report, Hunt has requested a trade. He wants a new home ahead of the 2022 season. 

However, the Browns have told him no and want him to stick around for the upcoming season. And it appears he's willing to forget about the money and work hard for the team this fall.

"Breaking: Kareem Hunt has asked the #Browns to trade him -- and they've told him no; his best strategy would be to kill it for them this season and earn his next contract," said Mary Kay Cabot.

It looks like this is going to be a bit of a roller coaster as the 2022 season approaches. But for now, it appears Kareem Hunt is committed to the Browns.
