Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt sat out of team drills in training camp for the second straight practice Saturday as he reportedly looks for a contract extension, per CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson:

“Browns RB Kareem Hunt—currently seeking a contract extension—did not participate in team drills for the second consecutive practice on Saturday. Hunt told the team multiple times recently, his current plan is to participate in individuals drills only.

“Friday marked the first time since training camp started that Hunt didn’t participate in the team portion of practice, per league sources. Their belief is Hunt’s partial ‘hold-in’ isn’t health related. Hunt is subject to fines from the club. Hunt’s agent was at the Browns facility earlier this week per sources.

“I’ve been told several times Hunt periodically has said to members of the team informallyhe wants to get paid or traded. However, one source emphasized they believe Hunt would like to stay in Cleveland, but just wants to be compensated for his worth.”

As noted by Anderson, Hunt is still participating in individual drills, making this a partial holdout of sorts.

Hunt, who turned 27 on Saturday, has played five NFL seasons. He’s coming off an injury-shortened 2021 campaign (calf, ankle) that saw him amass 560 total yards and five touchdowns in eight games.
