Someone is going to get a very good, young, cheap RB this off-season that's for sure. It's nuts that he will get his pick of teams potentially too. Exit Ingram and enter Hunt. RIP NFL.

any chance he plays this year, signs with the team that eventually wins SB?

Kind of ridiculous that he is essentially suspended for the rest of the season (5 games counting the one he already missed) and then will get an additional 6 games next year. 

The suspension is justified (in hindsight). How the NFL came to the conclusion to suspend though is another story. But I'm not in the least bit surprised anymore under Goodell. He was quick to turn a blind eye to the Ray Rice incident with more than enough sufficient evidence but was equally just as quick to pull the trigger on Hunt before he even saw the evidence. 

The inconsistencies under Goodell is laughable at this point.

From my understanding he can't play while he is on the exempt list which will continue as soon he is signs to another team.

will he play in the playoffs? I am not familiar with the exempt list, but it sounds like a  jail

Hunt will not see the field again in 2018.

He'd need to be signed and if he does, he'll start serving his suspension if he's out of "NFL jail"

Not likely at all. Being on an exempt list means he cannot play until it is lifted by the league[Goodell] which is just a way of saying "you're suspended until we figure out what we're going to do".

Chiefs should sign him. With the release of their young stud RB, they could use a bell cow like Hunt to replace him.

Yes. 

To put in another way. Let's say in best case scenario and not likely at all, he gets signed tomorrow and Goodell says "okay, you're off the exempt list but here is your suspension of 6 games". He would then be able to play after the suspension (obviously). But again, that's not going to happen. I'm just using it as an example.

The bit that makes me wonder is, if he had been straight forward with the whole situation since the beginning, would the Chiefs keep him around. 

Nah, the Chiefs don’t put up with domestic abusers on their team - unless there’s no video evidence of it and it’s not in the public eye.

He really damaged his earnings potential.  They'll be incentives that can bring it up to about $3M would be my guess.

lol nope and no way he signs a multi-year deal..

He'll sign a 1-year deal, and work the language so that most of the $$$ does not come from game checks to minimize his losses during the inevitable suspension (see the Patriots and Tom Brady's suspension from a few years back). I also very sincerely doubt it'll be anywhere near the league minimum.

Then he'll ball out, and sign a 3 year deal somewhere for buku bucks. He then gets to hit free agency again at age 28.

 

Somewhere, Le'Veon Bell is shaking his head, wishing he had orchestrated a PR hit that resulted in his release. "Optics", indeed.
