Hunt’s been out of the NFL since TMZ Sports published video of the ex-Chiefs star shoving and kicking a woman during a February altercation at a Cleveland hotel.
But … Nagy’s got a great relationship with the RB — he was Hunt’s OC during the RB’s rookie season in 2017 — and says he wanted to check in on him when they spoke just a few days ago.
“I talked to Kareem completely wanting to know how he’s doing. And we had a good conversation.”
Nagy says the convo never turned to football … but he did say he’s a coach that has always been in favor of giving players second chances.
“Me, personally, depending on certain people’s situations, I’m a guy that has always been that. I’ve been kind of raised that way to give guys second chances.”
Does that mean Hunt will be in a Chicago uniform next season? Nagy certainly didn’t seem opposed to the idea … but GM Ryan Pace says the Bears need more time to make that call.
“We’re not even there yet,” Pace said … “I know what [Hunt] is as a player, obviously, from watching him. Matt knows a little bit more about him as a person. But we’re not even close to that point.”
Hunt is still facing suspension — which is expected to be AT LEAST a 6-game ban next season — from the league from the incident.
