College career

As a freshman at Toledo in 2013, Hunt played in 12 games with three starts and rushed for 866 yards on 137 carries with six touchdowns. He had a strong four-game stretch in the season with 127 rushing yards and two touchdowns against Navy, 114 rushing yards and a touchdown against Bowling Green, 168 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns against Eastern Michigan, and 186 rushing yards and a touchdown against Buffalo. As a sophomore, he played in 10 games, missing three due to an injury. In the 10 games that he appeared in, he rushed for at least 101 yards in all of them. He rushed for 1,631 yards on 205 carries with 16 touchdowns. He was the MVP of the 2015 GoDaddy Bowl victory over Arkansas State after rushing for 271 yards and five touchdowns, which tied an NCAA record with Barry Sanders.

Hunt was suspended for the first two games of his junior year in 2015 due to a violation of team rules. He returned for the third game, but was injured during the game and missed the next two games. Overall, in the 2015 season, he finished with 973 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. In 2016, Hunt played all 13 games, leading the MAC in both rush attempts (262) and yards (1,475), including 200 rushing yards in the loss at #14 Western Michigan. His 4,945 career rushing yards broke Chester Taylor's school record, and was third all time in MAC conference history. In addition, he holds career school records for yards per rush (6.3, with a minimum of 100 rushes), and total yards from scrimmage (5,500).

Professional career

Hunt was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round (86th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was the sixth running back to be selected in the draft. In addition, he was the first of three Toledo Rockets to be selected that year.

Following a knee injury to starting running back Spencer Ware in the Chiefs' third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, Hunt was named starting running back for the Chiefs on August 27, 2017.<

Hunt made his NFL debut on September 7, 2017, against the New England Patriots. On his first career NFL carry, despite never losing a fumble during his college career, Hunt fumbled, with the ball being recovered by the Patriots' safety Devin McCourty. Hunt went on to catch two touchdown passes – a three-yarder from quarterback Alex Smith late in the first half, and a 78-yarder in the fourth quarter, and punched in a four-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth en route to a 42–27 Chiefs win. Hunt finished with 246 total yards from scrimmage (148 rushing, 98 receiving), the most ever in an NFL debut. He joined stars Marshall Faulk (for the Indianapolis Colts in 1994, 174 yards) and Billy Sims (for the Detroit Lions in 1980, 217 yards), as the only NFL players since 1970 to debut with over 150 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns. His 148 rushing yards led all NFL rushers for Week 1. Hunt was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of September after leading the NFL with 401 rushing yards, 538 yards from scrimmage, and 8.53 yards per carry. In a Week 7 31–30 road loss to the Oakland Raiders, he had 117 scrimmage yards for his seventh straight game accomplishing the feat.

On December 19, 2017, Hunt was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl as a rookie. Heading into Week 17, Hunt was third in the NFL in rushing yards behind Todd Gurley and Le'Veon Bell. Both Gurley and Bell were inactive for Week 17 after both teams clinched the playoffs and were resting their players, giving Hunt a chance to claim the rushing title. On his first and only carry of the game, he rushed for a 35-yard touchdown, passing both Bell and Gurley, giving Hunt the rushing yards title for the 2017 season with 1,327 yards. This marked the second season in a row where a rookie led the league in rushing (Ezekiel Elliott in 2016). He was ranked 33rd on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018.

The Chiefs finished atop the AFC West with a 10–6 record and qualified for the playoffs. In the Wild Card Round against the Tennessee Titans, Hunt rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in the narrow 22–21 defeat.

Hunt remained the Chiefs' primary running back going into the 2018 season. During Week 3, he recorded his second career game with two rushing touchdowns in the 38–27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. In the next game against the Denver Broncos, he rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 54 yards. On October 6, Hunt was fined $26,739 for a hit where he intentionally lowered his helmet.

In the next game, a 45–10 home victory against the Cincinnati Bengals, he rushed for 86 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 55 yards and two touchdowns. Hunt continued his momentum in Week 8 against the Broncos, rushing for 50 yards and catching five passes for 36 yards and a touchdown. In the next game, Hunt rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns, along with a 50-yard touchdown reception in a 37–21 road victory over the Cleveland Browns, earning him AFC Offensive Player of the Week. During Week 11, in what turned out to be Hunt's final game as a Chief, he rushed for 28 yards and caught six passes for 41 yards and a touchdown as the Chiefs narrowly lost to the Los Angeles Rams on the road by a score of 54–51.

Hunt was released by the Chiefs on November 30, 2018, after a videotape of him physically assaulting a woman and kicking her on the ground the previous February surfaced. Hunt was never charged with any crime, as the incident was investigated as a misdemeanor assault and the victim failed to properly take her case to court.

Hunt was signed by the Cleveland Browns on February 11, 2019. Due to the pending investigation from the NFL into the assault allegations against him, Hunt was placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt list after signing his contract. On March 15, 2019, the NFL announced that Hunt had been suspended without pay for the first eight games of the 2019 season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He was eligible to participate in all off-season workouts and all preseason games. Following the announcement, Hunt was added to the Browns' active roster.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam insists he would 'absolutely' bring Deshaun Watson to Cleveland again

www.dailymail.co.uk, August 18, 2022
The Browns traded three first-round picks (and more) to Houston for Watson and he was then handed a five-year $230 million contract extension by Cleveland. Watson will now miss a large chunk of that contract's first year after the NFL and players' union settled the league's appeal of Watson's suspension. As part of the terms of the suspension, Watson will also have to 'promptly undergo a professional evaluation by behavioral experts and will follow their treatment program,' though the former Houston QB maintained his innocence on Thursday.
