Kareem Hunt believes Browns’ offense can be just as explosive as Chiefs’
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt had spent his career in one of the NFL’s most high-powered offenses with the Kansas City Chiefs. Fortunately, he is confident that Cleveland will be able to emerge into the same thing.
Many of the elements that made the Chiefs’ offense so successful are now prevalent with the Browns and their newfound star power. According to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com, Hunt feels they can be just as dynamic as Kansas City in the 2019 NFL season:
“I believe so, definitely,’’ he said Thursday after joint practices with the Chiefs. “I believe we can.’’
“We’ve just got a number of receivers, running back talent, a great quarterback, the same thing K.C. has, so there’s similarities,’’ he said. “Yeah, definitely. It’s a lot of big pieces to this offense. It’s hard to really find or point out a weak spot on this team, offensively and defensively.”
While it is still too early for such lofty comparisons, there is good reason for Hunt to be optimistic. Like the Chiefs, the Browns now boast a surplus of firepower on offense. Their resurgence starts under center with Patrick Mahomes and Baker Mayfield. Despite being so early in their careers, they appear to be on the cusp of becoming perennial MVP candidates.
Of course, their teams have done a stellar job of surrounding them with a strong supporting cast. Hunt had been a part of an explosive group that included wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce. He now joins one led by wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.
It will be interesting to see which of these teams will emerge as the best offense in the AFC.
