i think kareem's a bit of a knucklehead buried in an engaging and upbeat guy. he's got some pain and issues but if he cuts/moderates the alcohol, he's got a chance to figure it out. and, when he's mentally and physically healthy he's a great football player.

agree with the second paragraph but not entirely the first. The guy just doesn't seem "evil" or mean at heart. He doesn't handle frustration and he gets himself into situations that frustrate him. Bad combo.

His financial future will depend upon his investments and his planned transition to civilian life not his contract. This is universal for anyone whose high income life is short. Hopefully he took some courses at UT that will help in that regard but if not, there are a couple former players that seem to have nailed that post athletic career life.

for sure it is about how he manages his money, but the reality for a good running back is you make 80% of your career earnings in that second long term contract (following your rookie deal and maybe a 1 year or franchise interim deal). Teams want to lock up a good back for their mid to late 20s and then move on. That contract usually comes w a big signing bonus and is partially guaranteed. I think Hunt made a little over 2 mill, pre-tax/agent fees/etc in his first 3 years. if he has a good season and signs a long term deal he'll get around 20 mill mostly guaranteed next season. that's the make or break you money (if you don't blow it).

Interesting how Denver's fate changed after they cut Brett Kern.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed Alonzo Russell. Now, if there is just a season to play.

Jon'Vea Johnson among the first to be placed on the NFL's new reserve/COVID-19 list. Not a good start for his season (assuming there is one).

And the Titans have waived Zac Kerin
https://www.tennesseetitans.com/news/tit...81-players

Only 80 players on camp rosters this season, as opposed to the usual 90 which means some early cuts.
