On Wednesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters that he’s hopeful the league’s investigation into free agent RB Kareem Hunt will be wrapped up soon.
“Kareem Hunt I think everyone knows that he is, that issue is under investigation, has been,” Goodell said, via NFL.com. “He is a free agent. If he is signed by a club, the clubs understand he’ll go on the Commissioner’s Exempt List at that point in time until the discipline process has concluded whether there is discipline or not discipline we will finish the investigation and then make a determination. So that hopefully will happen soon, but we haven’t concluded the investigation and we’re working to do that. There has been a tremendous amount of progress though in that investigation over the last I’d say 30 to 60 days.”
According to Roger Goodell, it’s possible they could suspend Redskins ILB Reuben Foster, even though the charges against him were dropped.
“On Reuben Foster you mentioned his charges have been dropped. We continue our investigation into that. Whether the charges are dropped doesn’t necessarily mean there isn’t a violation of our personal conduct policy,” Goodell said, via NFL.com. “Reuben and I have met before, we will talk again. We will conclude that investigation and make a determination and go from there.”
