CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt might be the person on the team who understands what Myles Garrett is going through the most.
Garrett appealed his indefinite suspension from the NFL on Wednesday and is waiting for a decision.
On Wednesday, Hunt said he spoke to Garrett a few days ago and that he feels he is handling the situation well.
“I feel like he is handling it. He is ready to take responsibility of his consequences and that is all he can do. Now just show to everybody that Myles is a good guy. He is one of the best people, I would say. He is a good person," Hunt said.
Hunt recently returned to the NFL after serving an eight game suspension for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy in connection with physical altercations in Cleveland in February 2018 and at an Ohio resort in June 2018.
He said he has been in Garrett's position and that he understands how he feels.
“Like you said, I have been there and I have been in his position. It is tough, but you just have to take it day by day and be positive, even when you feel like it is never going to end. I am here now and finally got through the storm," Hunt said.
Even though Hunt was surprised with what Garrett did, he still supports him.
“Yeah, I was surprised. Emotions get high. It still does not change the way that I think about Myles. Absolutely a great person, a great teammate. Made a mistake. Hopefully, we get him back sooner than later. That is all we can hope for," Hunt said.
