"“It’s something where he gets another opportunity,” Mahomes said, according to the Associated Press’s Tom Withers. “I’m sure they will have things that he needs to do off the field in order to be on the field playing. Kareem is a great player, great running back.”"
Both Mahomes and Hunt were members of the Chiefs’ 2017 draft class. Since both players joined the team at the same time and worked together on the offensive side of the ball, they likely created a tight relationship. With that friendship, Mahomes seems happy that Hunt is getting another opportunity.
