KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The first stop on the Chiefs’ ‘Run it Back’ tour features a familiar face.

Fresh off the heels of his team’s first playoff win since 1994, Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt took to social media to express his excitement for the next round.

“Next week’s personal,” Hunt said to thousands of followers on Instagram following a 48-37 win over division rival Pittsburgh. “Next week’s personal. Let’s go.”

“Kareem ran pissed off,” Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield added. “He ran like he wanted to get to Kansas City.”

After being drafted in the third round by Kansas City in 2017, Hunt spent two seasons with the club, churning out 2,984 all-purpose yards and scoring 25 touchdowns.

He was released by the team in December of 2018 following a series of off-field disciplinary issues.

“That's where I started,” Hunt said about his time in KC. "I got a lot of people on that team [who] look out for me, care for me as a person and I care for them too."

Browns versus Chiefs is scheduled for Sunday, January 17 at 2:05 central.
